Cooper joins the global agency’s London hub to work across key global and European accounts, including Footlocker, Deezer and EE.

He joins recently promoted head of consumer Kat McGettigan, head of experience Tom Johnson and global director of finance and operations Anthony Cleary, all of which sit on M&C Saatchi PR’s senior management team.

Cooper has more than 15 years’ industry experience. He spent more than three years at the Movember Foundation, before joining Three Mobile as lead comms strategy manager in January 2015. Before the Movember Foundation, he was head of media for Tottenham Hotspur football team.

In his new role, Cooper will report to M&C Saatchi PR’s global CEO, Molly Aldridge, and UK MD, Chris Hides.

Aldridge said: “We have seen significant growth in the business in 2016 and I’m thrilled that Dan has joined us to drive more new business wins and creative campaigns worldwide. Dan brings an excellent track-record of delivering best in class results and has excellent client counsel. He will be an invaluable addition to our senior team.”

Cooper added: “I’m delighted to be part of such an exciting global agency. M&C Saatchi PR is ‘driven by passion’ and it’s apparent that this goes into every output, be it a local sell in, global creative campaign or high profile event. I’m excited to see what the future holds for us and to get working on some of the coolest brands out there.”
