Digital lead: Concannon

Concannon joins Harvard from Text 100, where he led the agency’s digital and social media consulting for clients such as IBM, Sony and Vodafone. At Harvard, Concannon will set up a hub to provide a full-service digital offering to existing and new clients.

Ewens joins from Octopus Group’s marketing and research arm Loudhouse, where he ran programmes for clients such as Sony PlayStation and Cisco. In his new role, Ewens will lead creative work for clients and in-house.

St Claire said: ‘‘In these transparent times, we have an opportunity to help our clients in a way that is good for their businesses and better connects them to their customers. Achieving this relies on a strong digital capability and compelling content.’

Both positions are new within the agency. Concannon and Ewens will participate in Good Relations’ trial of Google planning tools, implemented by Chime’s head of digital and innovation Amelia Torode at the beginning of the year.
