Gearing up for growth
Nick Wright has joined us this week to lead our design and digital teams and drive the growth of our creative services business.
Nick joins following a period of rapid expansion for us, including winning a raft of new creative projects with big name clients including Coca Cola, DENSO, Ernst & Young and National Grid, as well as opening our second office in Brentwood, Essex.
As Creative Director he will lead our growing team of graphic and digital designers, web developers, animators and writers and oversee the development of the creative services arm. This will include launching a new design-only brand within our portfolio.
Nick explains: ”Since its formation six years ago, Gatehouse has built a strong reputation and an impressive client list within the internal communication and employee engagement space, and is now recognised as one of the fastest growing agencies in this sector. Creative flair – combined with robust thinking and strategic insight – has always been at the heart of the Gatehouse offering and I am looking forward to building on that foundation by expanding the range of creative services we provide and extending into new areas like branding.”
Nick is an experienced design professional who has worked both in-house and in consultancy. After gaining client side experience within financial and professional services organisations including BNY Mellon and Nat West, Nick went on to lead the in-house design function at law firm Baker Tilly. He has successfully managed client relationships with design agencies such as Rareform and Branding by Garden, and will be utilising his in-house knowledge to build our creative business.
Bringing Nick on board will enable us to expand the depth and breadth of our creative offering and ensure first class service delivery for our existing clients. His client side experience – particularly within the financial and professional services sector where we have a number of high profile clients – and his creative flair and leadership skills will provide the foundation for our future growth in this area.
