Daniels said of his appointment: “With Jack the opportunities for success are endless. It’s not just about getting into consumers’ heads; it’s about delivering a full sensory experience. Brand experience is the launch pad for everything social, marrying off-line and online seamlessly. The idea of physically witnessing the impact your creative ideas can achieve and producing extraordinary work is very exciting.”

Jack’s new executive producer Wight comes to Jack Morton with more than 15 years of experience in experiential, sponsorship and PR.
