H+K Strategies Middle East and Africa has welcomed Gareth Talbot to the role of Digital Director. Gareth was previously Head of Digital at Bell Pottinger Middle East, where he worked alongside the existing PR offering to implement best practices and deliver improved results across a range of sectors and clients. As Digital Director, he will be responsible for the day-to-day management and operations of client accounts with an emphasis on retaining and expanding current client business, providing strategic counsel to senior client contacts. He will also aid senior management with staff selection and the development of junior staff, as well as assist line managers in new business efforts.
“I’m excited to be joining Ed and the team at H+K Strategies to support in growing their fantastic digital offering throughout the Middle East and Africa,” says Gareth. “H+K Strategies have an impressive range of clients in the region, and it’s their unique commitment to investing in digital and building digital awareness and skills among colleagues at every level of the organisation that thrills me the most.”
Ed Poultner, Regional Digital Director, H+K Strategies Middle East and Africa, adds “Gareth brings over a decade’s worth of great experience to the role, having led in a number of digital initiatives in both the UK and the GCC. Bringing him on board will immeasurably strengthen our offering as we move into a full digitally integrated model of communications across our MENA offices.”
