Brown to share top job with Qureshi at CREATION
Mark Brown has been promoted to the role of joint managing director of multi-service advertising and design agency CREATION. The position will be shared with current managing director and agency founder, Shazan Qureshi who has given Mark the increased responsibility within six months of him joining the Manchester-based company.
Mark initially joined CREATION as business development director leading an aggressive new business drive and spearheading a change in strategy which has seen the number of clients of the company almost double in the last six months. Most recently the firm announced the launch of a 12-month mailing programme for the corporate relations department at The Lowry.
In his new role, Mark will continue to oversee the new business strategy whilst heading up human resource activity and managing client relations, focusing on service delivery.
Existing managing director of CREATION, Shazan Qureshi is delighted to share the driving seat with Brown: "Mark's made a real difference to the business since joining last October. He has presented us with a totally fresh approach, having existed outside agency life for the past five years or so.
"I strongly believe that businesses flourish by keeping an eye on the methods practised by those who operate outside their own industries, evaluating the various processes and results and adopting best practices from what they have learnt. Mark has demonstrated a particularly rounded way of working which he has practised at CREATION to great effect."
New joint managing director, Mark Brown comments: "The added responsibility is a welcome by-product of our on going success, CREATION is turning from a fledgling agency into a vital business concern and it's a real buzz to watch it grow and be part of the on-going management of the business."
Mark returned to agency life after five years in professional services, joining CREATION from PRG-Schultz, the NASDAQ listed leading US financial Services specialist, where he was corporate development director for FTSE and Fortune 500 clients.
CREATION's clients include Urban Logic, Paul Kennedy, Nadlan plc, RentSmart, Bury Grammar School and the Lowry.
