Martin Cryans will start as the head of Firefly Scotland early next month after eight years with Beattie.
Cryans will lead a team of five and work across Firefly’s client portfolio. He will be responsible for new business opportunities handled out of Firefly’s office in Edinburgh and will report to the agency’s London-based MD Mark Mellor.
Cryans joined Beattie as an account director in 1999 and rose to head the firm’s tech practice before becoming MD of the Glasgow operation in 2003. He is a board director at Beattie, which has offices across the UK and Europe.
Before joining Beattie, Martin spent six years at public affairs specialist Grayling.
