MKTG UK Gives Back: Castlehaven Community Association for Project Dirt

without comments

On July 26th a group of 13 willing volunteers from Posterscope, PSI and MKTG spent a day ‘Project Dirting’ with Castlehaven Community Association (CCA), an award winning community association in the heart of Camden Town.

The group were tasked with seasonal garden maintenance with a particular focus on the Association’s new Horticulture Hub in the morning whilst the afternoon was spent supporting and playing a football match with people with a range of disabilities.

Gary Wheelan, Client Director at MKTG said, “It was a really well organised day, which meant we could get stuck in from the start and feel like we had properly made a difference by the end. The Castlehaven team were really accommodating and they had plenty of tasks for us all to do – from shovelling rubble to sawing wooden sleepers, we could see the desired end result that we were helping towards.

The afternoon was brilliant, playing football with the disabled football team who train at the facilities on Wednesday afternoons was such a treat – even though they beat us!

It was a very different day to the usual one sat at my desk and I would recommend Project Dirt and in particular Castlehaven, to anyone looking to get involved with a volunteer project through work or independently.”

About Castlehaven Community Association

The Castlehaven Community Association was established in 1985 as a result of a group of local residents concerned about the lack of local facilities for children and older people. Since its inception the charity & company limited by guarantee has always been managed by a voluntary board of local residents. Castlehaven is a small but high profile, vibrant community association that continues to develop and respond to the needs of local residents.

Sean O’Brien to Lead MKTG Asia Pacific in New Role

with one comment

CAMPAIGN ASIA: DAN changes APAC leadership at Carat Sean O’Brien switches to Posterscope and MKTG, with Kevin Walsh replacing him at Carat.

Dentsu Aegis Network today announced that Sean O’Brien, CEO of Carat Asia-Pacific, will become CEO of the network’s experiential marketing unit MKTG and out-of-home specialist agency Posterscope in APAC. His position at Carat will be taken over by Kevin Walsh, previously managing director Carat APAC.

O’Brien spent six years as Carat CEO, in which time he tripled the size of the business. He has twice won Campaign Asia-Pacific’s Agency Head of the Year. In his new roles, he will oversee Posterscope’s digitisation across the region and the launch of “Liveposter”, the firm’s dynamic digital out-of-home asset that allows clients to change their OOH messaging throughout the day.

For MKTG, O’Brien is responsible for boosting its presence across APAC, with a particular focus on growth in China, followed by Japan and Korea. O’Brien said it has been “a privilege” to work as Carat CEO and that the business “is in great hands with Kevin”.

“MKTG and Posterscope are focused on how we communicate with people outside the home,” he told Campaign Asia-Pacific. “Liveposter gives us a competitive advantage in the space. For MKTG, APAC is the fastest growing opportunity around the world. We want to increase our ownership of assets in sport, music and entertainment, and develop our experiential work.”

Walsh has more than 20 years’ industry experience, having previously been with iProspect before moving to Carat as chief digital officer for APAC. He was promoted to managing director last year. “I’m picking up the reins at a very good time,” he told Campaign Asia-Pacific.

“Under Sean, Carat has seen tremendous growth and momentum, and there’s nothing like growth and momentum to attract new business and the very best talent.” Walsh added that as Carat CEO, he will continue using data to drive more value for clients from media, creating engaging content, and developing the agency’s e-commerce capabilities.

Nick Waters, DAN APAC CEO, said: “Sean will now focus on the development of two agencies with outstanding growth opportunities in Asia Pacific – MKTG and Posterscope. Kevin’s promotion represents the smooth execution of the Carat leadership succession plan.” Source: Campaign Asia-Pacific
