O2 Media has promoted Simon Voysey from business manager to creative solutions manager continuing its move towards being able to offer agencies and client’s creative cross-media solutions.
In this newly created role Voysey will focus on how O2 Media can partner with brands and go beyond traditional advertising to work directly with creative teams at brands and agencies to develop opportunities that enhance value for customers.
Voysey’s remit will also cover working on how O2 Media can make mobile work better in supporting campaigns on TV, in press and outdoor advertising.
Voysey has worked in media for 14 years at TopTable.com, Channel 4, N1 Creative and TMG before joining and helping to launch Blinkx in 2007. In November 2009 Voysey joined O2 Media as a business manager working with a selection of UK agencies and clients to launch O2 More, the personalised messaging platform from O2 Media.
In addition to Voysey’s promotion, O2 Media has appointed Gavin Emes as an account manager in the agency sales team. He joins O2 Media from Mobi Media, a Johannesburg-based mobile advertising agency.
Shaun Gregory, Managing Director at O2 Media, said: “With Simon’s new role we’re further strengthening our offerings for both brands and agencies. Mobile has cemented its position in the media plan but we now have to be able to offer intelligent and inventive ideas for campaigns. With in-house creative solutions we no longer need to rely on outsourced partners.
Simon Voysey, creative solutions manager, said: “O2 Media’s mission is to integrate mobile into the traditional media mix and with my new role I can help to ensure that mobile reaches its full potential. I am excited to work with agencies and brands to optimise their campaigns and help O2 Media to push their offerings’ creativity.”
