Reed joins M&C Saatchi Sport & Entertainment as head of digital and will work across clients including Samsung, Ballantine’s and NatWest.

As audience behaviours continue to evolve in the context of new digital possibilities we will deliver the best client solutions regardless of discipline, whether they are technologically-led, strategic, creative, data-powered or media-orientated.”
