The White Agency’s managing director Sandy Park has left to join its client Lion as a marketing communications director, prompting a leadership restructure at the digital agency.
Park, who was promoted to the MD role of the STW owned agency in 2009, is now marketing communications director of Lion’s beer, wine and spirits division.
Miles Joyce, chief executive of White, said: “We are genuinely delighted for Sandy. This is a great role for him and he deserves this opportunity.
“At the same time, it’s of course bitter-sweet. Sandy and I have worked together for many years and he has been a great asset for White. I am going to miss him sitting next to me every day. I can't thank him enough for his passion, commitment and contribution to getting us to where we are today – a genuine digital market leader.
“And of course we are looking forward to working with Sandy now as a client on the diverse range of work we do with Lion.”
