Black will join Launch Group as senior media executive next week. He will work across the agency’s consumer and corporate brands including BP, Zurich and BDO.
‘I’ve loved working as a journalist, but Launch offered me a chance to get stuck into different sectors for high profile clients and learn a whole new set of skills,' said Black.
‘The role was just too hard to turn down and I’m looking forward to working with Johnny and the rest of the Launch team,' he added.
Launch Group CEO Johnny Pitt said Black’s hire was ‘a clear signal of the considerable investment we continue to make in our talent, and our desire to attract and recruit the very best people to come and work with us across the business'.
