Paul Taaffe, CEO at Huntsworth PLC, said: “Grayling UK continues to emerge from a transformative period and this is absolutely the right time to promote Sarah to her role as Chief Executive of the UK business as we capitalise on the new management and focus she has overseen.

“Grayling represents some world- leading brands; and in the first quarter of 2017 it has added further marquee companies to its roster, as well as making some significant senior hires.  As Chief Executive, Sarah will continue to build and grow the business, supported by the existing management team.”

Scholefield said: “This is a very optimistic time for Grayling in the UK. I am very proud to be leading a team full of creativity, ambition and momentum in all our offices across the UK.  Together, we provide an exceptional service to our clients, which is resulting in award-winning work and big new business wins. We have started 2017 very strongly and I look forward to building on this success moving forward.
