Davison and Joseph both join TASTE as business directors, with a brief to deliver team direction and development.

Davison joins TASTE with 12 years’ experience in consumer comms. He has previously held the positions of head of consumer at Bite and, before that, director at Kazoo.

Joseph, who has more than ten years’ experience in consumer food and drink PR, previously led the food and drink team at Spider PR.

Leading the agency’s storytelling function, Stapley, who spent more than two years at We Are Social, takes on the role of editor at TASTE. She will oversee the agency’s content creation as well as social strategy and editorial planning.

Carolanne Bamford, currently TASTE business director, will move from campaign delivery into a strategy and measurement role as planning and performance director.

Bamford will lead the agency’s planning processes and oversee the delivery of TASTE’s in-house measurement and evaluation benchmarking system across all client work.

The new four-strong leadership team will report to Amy Thorne and Neil Whyte, TASTE’s managing partners.

Thorne said: “We’re extremely proud to announce our new leadership team. It’s a real marker of the next phase of TASTE’s growth. We’re already seeing a positive impact in all the areas we want to continue to grow and show value to our clients.”
