Kittcatt Nohr Co-founder Marc Nohr Joins Fold7
Independent agency Fold7 has appointed Marc Nohr as chief executive officer. The agency, based in new offices in Clerkenwell, has clients including Gumtree, Gocompare.com and Carlsberg.
With over 20 years of industry experience, Nohr brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to his new role at Fold7. As well as winning numerous personal and agency accolades, Nohr has made a significant contribution to the wider marketing industry. He has twice been elected to the board of the IPA, chaired the DMA awards and been awarded Honorary Life Fellow of the Institute of Direct and Digital Marketing for services to training. He also had a column in the Financial Times on creativity and has lectured at professional institutes and business schools around the world.
Formerly the co-founder and managing partner of leading integrated agency Kitcatt Nohr Alexander Shaw, Nohr was named CEO of Kitcatt Nohr Digitas in 2011, when the agency was acquired by Publicis Groupe and merged with Digitas. Nohr left when the earn-out was completed in December 2013 and has since worked directly for several clients and made investments in a number of technology start-ups.
Ryan Newey, Fold7 founder and executive creative director, comments: 'Marc has an amazing track record of creating success and growth and we’re delighted to bring him on board. He joins Fold7 at a very exciting time as we continue our pattern of significant year on year growth and emerge on the top pitch lists, achieving a top five ranking in the AAR’s new business conversion report.’
Marc Nohr adds: “A senior industry figure told me that Fold7 was his discovery of the year in 2014 and I can now see why: high creative standards, a collaborative and ambitious culture, great people and gorgeous offices. I look forward to helping them become a destination brand for clients and talent who share their creative ambition. In an era dominated by media fragmentation and technological innovation never have creative ideas been more important”.
