In this role, he’s responsible for driving media creativity and non-traditional activations and strategy for clients across the agency’s portfolio as part of the agency’s Radical + Disruptive Lab, as well as continuing to grow and expand the team and its capabilities. A seasoned and award-winning creative marketing executive, Nazir joins from Wavemaker, where he was most recently Head of Content & IP, where he connected brands with their audiences through Branded Entertainment, Licensing, Rightsholder, Content and Media partnerships. Previously, he held senior marketing and branded content positions with Maxus, Channel 5, and Sky Television. His work has won numerous awards, including the UK Sponsorship Awards, the Media Week Awards, and being crowned Sponsorship Agency of the Year.
Both will report to Ross Jenkins, CEO, EMEA & APAC, Mediahub, and be based in the agency’s London HQ.
