Matt Brown is promoted to Director of Media, broadening his current position to encompass the direction and growth of the media component of the agency.
Matt Wills is promoted to Director of Design and Build and will play a key role in leading and progressing the company’s ‘digital architect’ offering. In a further move, Philip Stelter has relocated to SYZYGY’s New York office, where he adds Managing Director of SYZYGY US to his current role as Global Chief Media Officer.
Ita Murphy, CEO SYZYGY UK said, “Client demand for smart thinking is such that we are rapidly expanding our strategic team and are delighted to welcome someone of Matt’s calibre to the team. He will make a robust addition to the UK team, offering our clients access to leading-edge digital thinking and strategy.

On his appointment, Matthew Cox adds, “I’ve been really impressed by the thinking that SYZYGY applies to a wide and diverse range of client briefs.

They are uniquely able to activate real change for clients in an agile way, at a time when brands are crying out for trust, credibility and results.”
