Specialist digital and eCRM agency, Underwired, has announced the appointment of a new Planning Director, Peter Anderson. The announcement follows Underwired’s recent decision to expand their eCRM offering.
Anderson started his career on the client side, going on to develop an agency-side career in planning, working with agencies such as Saatchi & Saatchi, WDMP, EHS Brann and Agency.com. His clients have included the likes of Procter & Gamble, Toyota, British Airways and Coca Cola.
Felix Velarde, Managing Director of Underwired, commented, “It is not every day you find individuals like Peter, who have such a strong planning background coupled with digital and eCRM experience. Given the fast growth of Underwired’s business, we need a planning director with a strong commercial understanding, who fully grasps the strategic and creative needs of our clients. Peter has all these qualities and we are certain he is going to make an excellent contribution to the agency.”
Anderson commented, "I feel passionately that digital agencies will increasingly be critical to marketing strategy, and those agencies with a strong understanding of how data and relationship marketing can be integrated with digital channels will have a significant advantage. I look forward to building on the success of Underwired as a core part of their team.”
