Financial services CX agency Yell has announced the appointment of Helen Harris as its first general manager.
Harris, who has an extensive career in business development and account management, will be responsible for managing Yell’s day-to-day operations in addition to driving new business opportunities.
She joins Yell after three years as client services director at ad agency Noble Brands. Prior to that, Harris held a number of roles at MercerBell including new business director and group account director.
