Oakwood appoints new MD as part of strong growth strategy

We are delighted to announce the new appointment of Simon Dodd, who joins us as Managing Director. This is a key appointment for us to achieve the growth we want as a business.

2015 saw us celebrate 20 years as an integrated communications agency, and in 2016 we are refocusing to exploit the depth of our sector knowledge and unique combination of skill sets.

Simon was previously Managing Partner at EMO and prior to that held MD and CEO roles in London and regional agencies, both independent and within plc groups. He was also Regional Chairman of the IPA.

This is a big step forwards for Oakwood. We are very, very good at what we do – our longevity and loyal client list pays testament to that. More importantly, we want Oakwood to go places over the next 20 years and to do that we need to start with building our management structure and offering. Simon is the perfect person to help us do that. Simon Dodd added ”I have been looking for the right opportunity. One where there is immense talent and ambition. Oakwood fits the bill perfectly”.
