Zazzle Media, in Sunderland Road, has announced that its strategy director, Richard Marriott, has been appointed as its head of agency.

Mr Marriott will be responsible for the strategic direction and day-to-day management of Zazzle and will work with its parent company, Stickyeyes, in Leeds - part of the IPG Mediabrands network, one of the so-called ‘Big Four’ global agency companies headquartered in New York.

IPG Mediabrands acquired Zazzle, which has team of 40 staff, three years ago in a £20 million deal.

Mr Marriott said: “I couldn’t have imagined I’d be managing a mass work from home migration and the subsequent impacts of Covid in my first few months in post but I’m immensely proud of the way the team has handled this latest challenge and excited to be leading Zazzle into the next stage of our development.

“Our core focus will continue to be our people and client performance while ensuring closer integration with our colleagues in Leeds and London. Working across the wider group positions us in a really unique place in the market.”

“We’re going to continue to work tirelessly on ensuring Zazzle remains a progressive and vibrant agency.”

Phil Kissane, Group Managing Director at Stickyeyes Group said: “It’s fantastic to be able to recognise Richard’s contribution to Zazzle’s success as we enter the next stage of growth.

“He knows the Zazzle team, their strengths and value to their clients inside out and is highly regarded.”

“I look forward to continuing the successful integration between both agencies as we continue to devise effective marketing strategies and deploy long-term creative content that reaches, engages and converts audiences.”
