As rEvolution, the largest independent integrated sports marketing agency, continues to grow its presence in the UK and add to its increasing range of capabilities, it has welcomed two new key members to its team, specializing in creative and business development. Based at the agency’s Central London offices in South Bank, Morgan Merle joins as Creative Services Director, while Jamie Salmon joins as Executive Business Consultant.
With more than 10 years’ experience in the creative sector, working for a variety of agencies in Paris, Mumbai and Dubai, Merle brings a wealth of design, event and advertising experience. He has implemented forward-thinking campaigns for a number of high-profile brands, including Toyota, Huawei, Red Bull and UBER. Merle will further establish rEvolution’s creative offering in London and will link closely with Chief Creative Officer Brian Quarles located at its Chicago headquarters.
Having previously worked with leading sports marketing and PR agencies, including Lagardère Sports, where he focused on golf and rugby union, Salmon will work alongside rEvolution’s UK Managing Director Merrick Haydon and Business Director George Gilmore to help develop the agency’s existing and new business potential. As well as having an exemplary résumé in the global sports industry, Salmon is a rare breed, having played international rugby for both the New Zealand All Blacks and England.
