Events, opportunities and other recent stories from the Stranger stable...
We’ve only gone and doubled in size these past three months – if you count the dog…
Our core team is bursting with new skills and talents as we’ve welcomed three new team members into the fold.
In April, we welcomed Caitlin Gould into the stable as our new commercial & client services director. Originally from California, Caitlin brings with her a haul of experience in business development and digital marketing, having worked with the likes of Red Bull, eBay, WordPress, Zoopla and other major international brands up in London. With a background in publishing and client management, Caitlin will be heading up the commercial side of the business, steering our growth and supporting our client relationships.
We’ve also boosted our creative team, inviting Alfie Hayward, senior editor & producer, and Anna Kiernan, creative & editorial director, to help keep our creative outputs razor sharp. Anna’s 19 years experience as a writer, editor, lecturer and cultural critic has seen her work for a wide range of clients including The Guardian, Arts Council, Falmouth University and publishing house Simon & Schuster, not to mention authors from Brian Cathcart and Joan Collins to Lemmy from Motorhead. Now part of Stranger Collective’s senior management team, Anna will oversee the creative direction of the agency.
A creative copywriter with a real passion for original ideas, Alfie has worked on all manner of integrated campaigns across advertising and editorial. He’s made TV ads for beer brands, short films for the Government, ambient stunts for exhibitions and Valentine’s cards for the hell of it. He loves experimenting; finding a fresh angle on a project to get people really excited – which makes him a perfect fit for us.
We’re really excited to be working alongside these amazing talents. And we know they can’t wait to sink their teeth into the exciting new projects on the horizon.
