StrategiQ has appointed Gellan Watt FRSA as an advisory member of the Board.
Continuing with our ambitious plans for StrategiQ, and laser focus on building a team of genuine industry experts, Gellan takes up the board position with immediate effect. From day one, I have been relentless in trying to “Build a brand people want to be part of” and this is a huge moment for us knowing that someone with his expertise, experience and genuine industry game-changing thinking is as excited and committed to that journey as we are.
With his extensive background in brand strategy and marketing as well as being an award-winning creative director and agency founder – Gellan brings with him a wealth of experience having founded the agency Thinking Juice in 2003, a creative agency that became Top Ten Agency (RAR and The Drum) and Marketing Industry UK Agency of The Year. The agency subsequently merged with the Emerge Group, and Gellan became group MD and COO growing the business to be the 10th largest independent group in the UK, with a £60 million turnover, prior to his exit in 2016.
“Strategy is the secret to my own creativity. It’s the thing I hold in highest regard as a discipline and StrategiQ lives and breathes it.
I work with some brilliant independent agencies, that I hope to help double and triple their size, momentum, and capability at record pace by doing the best thinking and the best work for the best clients.”
– Gellan Watt FRSA
Gellan’s appointment comes at an exciting time, the industry is changing and the demand for digitally focussed marketing strategy is greater than ever before. His passion for doing great work will naturally emanate throughout the agency and help the team deliver world class results for our existing and future clients. Gellan is a great addition to our leadership team and I am sure will be a driving force for the next chapter of StrategiQ as we double down on our commitment to creative thinking and world-class strategy.
