Welcome, Shakiba and Gill
Further is happy to welcome Shakiba Mohseni and James ‘Gill’ Gill to the team.
Shakiba joins the Strategy Team as Account Strategist to work on a variety of contracts, including British Film Institute, Herbert Woods and Technical Foam Services. Shakiba’s account management experience is a great addition to the company, having previously worked with brands such as Rolls-Royce, Center Parcs, Hogg Robinson Group and Harley-Davidson.
“I love working closely with clients,” explains Shakiba, “so this is a great role for me. I’m looking forward to bringing my experience to bear and helping push the agency forward as it grows.”
Gill’s role as Head Of Content Marketing sees Further expanding its content services. The position includes a number of roles, from client content strategy and creation work to Further’s own marketing.
“Insight and content is a perfect marketing marriage,” says Gill. “And I’m looking forward to working with all of Further’s internal teams to create great content that works harder for brands. It’s an exciting time for content marketing as more and more organisations see its benefits – and with Further’s agility, expertise and forward-thinking mindset, it’s perfectly poised to excel.”
With a background in publishing and marketing, Gill’s has worked for magazines that include Metal Hammer, T3 and Classic Rock as well as brands such as Zoopla, Hollywood Records and Porsche Club GB.
Gill likes William Morris wallpaper and Shakiba once hung out with David Bowie (in a dream).
Both of these appointments mark another step in Further’s growth.
