SAN FRANCISCO: Agent3 has hired Jason Clarke from Next Fifteen sister agency Text100 as its SVP for sales and partnerships.
Clarke stepped into the role this month, according to his LinkedIn profile. Clive Armitage, managing partner at Agent3, tweeted about the hire on Thursday.
Delighted to welcome @JasonClarkeSF to our US business to head up sales and partnerships out of the Bay Area. Good luck JC!— Clive Armitage (@CliveArmitage) May 12, 2016
Clarke was not immediately available for comment.
He joined Agent3 from Text100, where he served as VP of marketing and business development since January 2012. In that role, Clarke was responsible for the firm’s brand strategy, business development, and integrated marketing programs in North America. He also worked with senior regional leads to identify prospective clients and devise proactive online and offline integrated marketing programs, according to his LinkedIn profile.
Text100, meanwhile, has brought on a number of executives in recent months. A month ago, Kim Sample was hired as New York GM. In February, Text100 appointed James Beechinor-Collins to the newly created role of chief digital officer.
Text100 also recently appointed Jeremy Woolf as SVP of integrated communications and promoted Jeppe Christensen to the position of SVP of content and social.
Woolf is taking on Clarke’s duties at Text100 while the firm seeks his replacement.
"It has been great working with [Clarke], he has really changed the function over the past few years," said Woolf. "I wish him the very best."
Prior to Text 100, Clarke served as VP of marketing and business development at Bite Communications, another Next Fifteen agency. Previously, he was a new business manager at Lewis Communications.
