Mainwaring commented: “Andrew and I have been talking about working together for a long time. Finally, the timing is right. I love the way he and the Bellwether team go about it. Anchored in insights, rock-solid strategy, and always focused on delivering the best results for our clients.
“Oh, and making sure we have a ton of fun while we do it. In fact, I think that might be the secret ingredient here,” said Mainwaring.
Crook added: “Miles is a huge addition to our growing team. He brings decades of experience in running successful campaigns for global brands and he also understands the dynamics of running a creatively driven independent agency. Culturally he’s the right fit and that’s probably the most important thing. He brings to the office a Spotify playlist that even has even the youngest staff following him. And the added bonus of a few recipes and cooking tips!”
With recent account wins including Direct Wholesale, Naked Pools and Kids Sport 4 All,
Bellwether has beefed up its social and digital expertise with multiple staff hires recently.
