Wokes said: “I’m excited to be joining Drifter at a time when clients are looking for more cohesion in their media and creative agency relationships. The overload of content coupled with consumers ability to switch off has meant it’s more important than ever that message and medium align. The team at Drifter are producing some excellent work and are some of the best people I have worked with so I am excited about what we will be able to do for our clients and their customers”.

He returns from New York where he led the strategy for one of the biggest advertisers in the market, JP Morgan Chase. Before New York, Nick was Client Director at Match Media on IKEA, Ateco, Toshiba, RAMS amongst others.
