Wyman joins form Forster Communications, she will deliver global corporate and sustainability communications for international clients, and will develop Gong’s social purpose work.

She said: “I’m delighted to be part of such a strong and motivated team at Gong; an agency that clearly punches above its weight to deliver award-winning communications for clients as diverse as challenger brands and multinationals.”

Deacon joins from FleishmanHillard Fishburn, and, in his new role, will focus on the Lloyd’s of London account. He’ll also work with Gong associate director, Nikki Francis-Jones, on UK-focused marketing for the agency.

He added: “I’m thrilled to be joining such an inspiring team here at Gong. Delivering a strategy session with a solar energy social enterprise in Madagascar in my third week here is certainly confirmation that I’m in the right place.”

Gong MD, Narda Shirley, added: “Libby and James bring a great range of experience combined with boundless enthusiasm and passion. During 2016 we did a lot of thinking about who we are as an agency and that has helped us attract two standout people who are drawn to the idea of working on clients with a strong purpose.”
