Davidson joins Innocean having spent considerable time at Havas Sports and Entertainment and Octagon. Prior to that, he worked with Red Bull in the UK.
Innocean CEO Peter Fitzhardinge said: “Ian has a great track record in activating sport sponsorships, and his considered and thoughtful Scottish style won me over. He will bring a lot to the role and to the team.”
Comenting on his new role, Davidson said: “I was attracted to the role, as it’s a huge opportunity to work with some of the best sponsorships in the country, and I’m looking forward to delivering work that will represent a benchmark in leverage and activation for our clients.
“Working with the talents of people like Steve Jackson and his creative team was a real drawcard.”
