Live communications agency WRG today announced David Sharrock as the company’s new chief executive.
Sharrock, formerly chief operating officer at WRG, joined the company in 2012 from Trinity Mirror, where he was managing director of MEN Media.
He has been leading the WRG team since the departure of Barry Day in December 2013, and begins his new role with immediate effect.
The appointment comes as the company looks to expand its clients, employee base and international footprint.
“David is a hugely respected and experienced leader within WRG and the industry at large,” said WRG chairman Jim Faulds. “Under his guidance, WRG has seen great success over the last 12 months, and I am delighted to announce his appointment as the company’s new chief executive.”
WRG currently employs over 200 people across Europe, Middle East, Asia-Pacific and North America.
“Having managed the business throughout 2014, I’m now very much looking forward to taking WRG to even greater success as we expand, employ and engage in more ways than ever before throughout 2015 and beyond,” Sharrock said.
