In his new role, Marks will be responsible for further expanding the agency’s social capability right across its clients, including VMO2 and Mercedes Benz.

He will also offer specialist support to Omnicom clients where required. Marks reports to Ed Lee, RAPP UK’s Client Leadership Director.

Marks has been at RAPP UK for over six years, rising through the ranks to Group Account Director in April 2021.

He has led some of the agency’s most successful social campaigns, including Samsung’s ‘Watch’ which won Gold at the DMA Awards and most recently Samsung’s partnership with artist Pure Evil in ‘JoinTheFlipSide’ campaign, and ‘Don’t Google it, Fumble it’ for sex education charity Fumble.

Prior to joining RAPP UK, he worked at TMW Unlimited and Kitcatt Nohr.

Ed Lee said: “As an agency that stands up for individuality, I’m delighted to see Jamie’s talent and expertise recognised with this new, crucial role at RAPP UK.

“Jamie has been our expert on social, partnerships and influence and at the heart of our most significant client engagements and award-winning social campaigns, which makes him the perfect person to lead this expansion for RAPP UK and our clients.

“The move is also a key marker of the success of our progressive career planning initiative for client leaders.”

Marks said: “Social is now a pivotal space for brands to engage with their customers, which is why RAPP’s capabilities and expertise have expanded and grown at pace.

“To lead the team that is doing such creatively impressive work is not only a challenge I relish, but one I am excited about growing even further with the superb team around me”.
