Mark Keisner, CEO and Founder of New Stance, said: “Barry has an incredible track record in identifying opportunities for forward-thinking businesses and having him on board will really drive forward the agency’s opportunities to deliver impactful, creative partnerships for brands”.

Louth added: “Influencer-led partnerships revolutionised the way marketers look at social and are continuing to evolve every day, with the surge in popularity of short form video content.

“While other strategies have come into place it remains the most impactful and engaging medium when it comes to brands’ ability to reach new audiences.”
