Salmon spent the past two-and-a-half years at M&C Saatchi PR, where he developed and led creative campaigns, launches and events for brands including Red Bull, EE, Paddy Power, Capcom and Disney.

He also headed up pan-European activity for clients including Foot Locker, Spotify and Deezer.

Before M&C Saatchi PR, he spent four years at Eulogy.

In his new role at John Doe, Salmon will work closely with UK MD Rosie Holden, as well as newly-hired creative director James Wilkins.

Holden said: “‘It’s always a pleasure to hire brilliant people, and it’s exciting to have Rik on board at John Doe to help drive and manage our continued growth across all our agency offerings.”

Salmon added: “I’ve long admired John Doe from afar, and the opportunity to work with the likes of adidas Originals and the other fantastic brands here was too good to pass up. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some super talented people across my career so far, and I look forward to that continuing here.”
