We are delighted to announce the appointment of the newest member of the St Luke’s fold: Ed Palmer, who will serve as our Managing Director. Ed joins us from M&C Saatchi where he was Managing Partner heading up RBS/Natwest and TfL.
And yet another wonderful piece of news – Dan Hulse, previously Managing Director and Planning Partner, will take on the newly created role of Chief Strategy Officer, managing the strategic direction of the agency.
Ed’s return is somewhat of a homecoming as he started his career with a 7 year stint at St Luke’s, back in ’98. He then spent time at Leo Burnett before joining TBWA where he was made Head of Account Management running Mars, Playstation Europe and Biersdorf; and then M&C Saatchi as Managing Partner.
He says: “St Luke’s is on fire. The opportunity to join a place that has such energy, with a management team I’ve known for the last 18 years, was too good to pass up.”
Our CEO, Neil Henderson, is just as thrilled: “Ed is one of the smartest Account guys out there. His experience in delivering major multi-channel campaigns will play a vital role as we expand to meet our ambitious growth plans. It will be great to welcome him back.”
