POSSIBLE Hires Chris Daplyn as UK CEO
POSSIBLE has announced Chris Daplyn as its new UK CEO, effective immediately. Based in London, Daplyn will oversee the UK business, which includes responsibility for offices in Budapest and Poland.
Daplyn joins POSSIBLE from sister agency Wunderman, where he’s spent the last four years, most recently as Managing Director of their London office. In his time there, he moved swiftly up the ranks from Business Director to Managing Partner and Client Services Lead, before being promoted to Managing Director in 2016. Daplyn brings a wealth of experience to the role, spanning CRM & loyalty, digital, content, data, and creative.
Having achieved great success at POSSIBLE, current London CEO, Neil Miller will be moving into a wider team position, working with WPP Chief Revenue Officer George Rogers.
POSSIBLE EMEA CEO Darin Brown said: “I am thrilled to welcome Chris to the team. He’s a strong and personable leader with a lot of ambition and passion for the POSSIBLE brand. His energy and experience will be incredibly valuable as we continue to grow and serve our clients digital needs. It’s also a fantastic opportunity for Neil, so I want to say a massive thank you for his stewardship and wish him all the best for the future.”
Current POSSIBLE Managing Director Jo Hagger will be bridging the gap left by Daplyn, switching across to take up the role of Managing Director for the Wunderman UK business. Hagger has already made a huge impact in her first four months at POSSIBLE, and the opportunity to work across a much larger employee and client base, is testament to that.
Wunderman UK CEO Pip Hulbert said: "Jo will be a fantastic addition to the agency and I look forward to seeing her replicate some of her recent successes here at Wunderman. These moves solidify our partnership with POSSIBLE."
This news puts POSSIBLE and Wunderman in an enviable position as they move into 2018, strengthening the managing board at both companies and bringing with it new momentum and drive.
