Bite appointed Rowntree to its UK board in May 2011. She worked on accounts including Microsoft, which moved to Edelman following a review earlier this year and Telefónica Digital.

She joined from Porter Novelli, where she was technology director and worked with clients including Hitachi Global Storage, BT, Clickfree, LANDesk and MOFILM.

Following her departure, Porter Novelli was without a dedicated tech head until former Hill+Knowlton Strategies MD Grant Currie joined the agency last month.

Prior to Porter Novelli, Rowntree spent eight years at Chocolate Communications and three at Grant Butler Coomber.

Rowntree could not be reached for comment.
