Chris Mellish CEO TMW UNLIMITED said: “I am delighted to count Steve as a member of our team.
“He shares our belief that for clients to truly thrive in today’s complex marketing landscape they need ideas that work across the entire customer journey and must have human understanding at their core.
“His achievements speak for themselves, and I can’t wait to see what he will bring to our next phase of growth.”
Commenting on his new role, Garside said: “The opportunity to work with Chris and the team at TMW Unlimited was just too good to not drive head-first into.
“The breadth and quality of the agency’s offering across the UK is something I can’t wait to shout about – you can probably guess that I’m very excited.
“I look forward to getting stuck in with the hugely talented people across the agency, and help some new brands create ideas that move people.”
