A client services director with global cross-category experience in marketing for leading brands has joined Chester-based B2B marketing agency, The Armstrong Partnership.
Leigh Armstrong joins as client services director after relocating from Leo Burnett’s Chicago office, bringing almost two decades’ experience to the industrial sector specialist agency. As client services director, she will be responsible for building relationships with existing clients and prospects, as well as staff development and driving revenue growth at the agency.
Leigh said: “After spending over five years across the water, first in Toronto and then in Chicago, I’m all too excited to be back on British soil and working for Armstrong. This agency has a real air of excitement about it, with an impressive international client list and an abundance of talent that’s hungry to deliver results. I can’t wait to get stuck in and help Armstrong deliver even more for its clients as it enters its next phase of growth.”
Leigh, originally from Scotland, started her career at The Leith Agency and then moved to TBWA before moving to Leo Burnett’s Toronto office as global account director for Proctor & Gamble. She was head hunted and asked to relocate to Leo Burnett Chicago to lead the North American new business team, before winning and ultimately leading the Jim Beam global business. After moving back to the UK, she sought a return to her roots working in a dynamic, independent agency.
Daniel Owen, CEO of The Armstrong Partnership, said: “Armstrong is riding high at the moment, with client and team growth helping propel the business forwards. Leigh brings decades of experience in running global household name brands and the whole team is excited to learn from her. We’re looking forward to her becoming an integral part of our team.”
Armstrong’s 40-strong agency team delivers brand strategy and development, creative services, digital, and CGI and motion projects for its large client base in the building materials, glass and industrial vehicle industries. Based in the Old Post Office on St John Street in Chester, the agency has a reputation for delivering exciting, sector-leading campaigns for its clients.
