Three is the magic number as The Marketing Pod continues 2019 growth

28th August 2019

Full-service B2B marketing and communications agency, The Marketing Pod - which is based at Umberslade Business Park near Hockley Heath - has strengthened its team with the appointments of Adam Leach as head of digital, Katherine Hawkley as account director and Madelin Flores-Solorzano as account manager.

The three new recruits mean the B2B specialist agency – which was founded by Jodie Williams and Jenny Hughes in 2013 – now has a team of 12, and follows a year of strong growth and major client wins.

With experience gained both client and agency side – including at Birmingham-based agency Matrix – Adam will lead The Marketing Pod’s digital marketing offering across both existing and new clients.  Katherine joins from Superdream, where she led integrated campaigns for clients across a variety of B2B sectors, and previously spent 10 years as B2B marketing lead for ‘big six’ energy supplier, Eon.  At The Marketing Pod, she will be delivering integrated campaigns for a number of clients across sectors including utilities and technology.

Madelin joins from McCann Central, where she worked on integrated campaigns for a leading financial services brand, and prior to McCann, she was a key account handler for Jaguar Land Rover at agency Spark 44, working across multiple European territories.

The new recruits join The Marketing Pod at a particularly busy time for the agency, as Jenny Hughes, co-founder and director, comments:

“Since we launched, we have experienced phenomenal growth, and 2019 has seen us expand our services further.

“Thanks to major new client wins this year – all of which require a full-service approach, from digital to PR – we have needed to expand our team across all marketing disciplines. This is a really exciting time for us, and we are thrilled to welcome Adam, Katherine and Madelin to our team of ‘Podsters’.”

The Marketing Pod has also recently received five nominations for the forthcoming CIPR PRide Awards, including Agency of the Year.
