Starcom announces the appointment of Louise Peacocke as managing partner.
Reporting to Hamid Habib, Starcom’s UK managing director, Peacocke will be a key member of the leadership team, where she will be responsible for delivering best-in-class products for the agency, leading senior relationships with top-tier clients and driving overall business growth for clients.
Peacocke’s digital background and breadth of experience will bring a fresh approach to client leadership. She is well versed in helping businesses adapt to the changing industry landscape and identifying the best opportunities for client growth.
Peacocke re-joins Starcom after seven years at MediaCom, where she oversaw a range of major client relationships, including Direct Line Group, NOW TV, Bayer, EON and Scope. Prior to MediaCom, she led the P&G Digital Agency of Record, housed within Starcom, which delivered the digital strategy and media execution for all P&G brands. She also spent two years working at Initiative in Los Angeles, where she was the Digital Vice President for their CPG and entertainment clients – including Dr Pepper Snapple Group, CBS and Lionsgate.
This hire is the latest example of Starcom’s ever-growing senior leadership team, which consists of the industry’s most passionate and leading talent. Earlier this year, Hamid Habib was appointed as Managing Director and Kay Martin as Managing Partner.
