Bondholder WDA Branding has appointed Gemma Lovett, finalist in the Fastest 40 Awards Most Creative People in the East Midlands category, to the creative agency.
Commenting on the new appointment, Lee Waterhouse, Managing Director, said: "Gemma worked for WDA for a period after graduating and we have remained good friends ever since - even though we were sometimes pitching against one another!
"Over the years Gemma has developed into one of those very rare creatives who is not only a brilliant designer but also a great marketing strategist and a skilled account manager.
"Gemma is going to be a real asset to the team, her experience will be invaluable and I believe that given the right support and framework she will flourish and help take the agency to another level - In fact she's already been instrumental in winning WDA a prestigious new account which we are all delighted about."
Gemma said: “I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into my new role.
“Headed up by Creative Director Chris Redshaw, I really believe we now have a pretty much unbeatable creative team, and I’m looking forward to playing my part in realising WDA’s exciting growth plans.”
Also joining the team this month is Matthew King as creative designer.
WDA has known Matt since he was recommended to the company by fellow Bondholder the University of Derby.
