He brings a deep-rooted passion for creativity and his role will focus on ensuring CSM’s creative thinking is bolder and braver than ever before. With a significant number of new wins in 2021, Kemp will make sure originality and extraordinary creative thought sits at the heart of all future client campaigns.
Kemp said: “I’m thrilled to be joining such a dynamic agency. I’m clearly no stranger to agency life, but there is a unique spirit and energy at CSM which appealed to me. I can’t wait to bring my creative influences to the table, help carve out effective campaign ideas and lead the team forwards in delivering unparalleled creative work for the world’s biggest brands.”
Working alongside Kemp, Charlotte Monks joins as Head of Creative Services, arriving at CSM from her previous role as Head of Shoots and Production at Boden. Prior to that, she worked as Head of Creative Services at M&C Saatchi Sport and Entertainment. Taking on a new role for the business, Monks will focus on processes, resource planning and building an unrivalled team of the brightest creative minds.
Monks said: “It’s a hugely exciting time to be joining CSM. Alex and I are fortunate to be coming into a team that already provides a great service. The focus now will be on identifying how we can improve that service and building the best possible Creative team to ensure we stand out from our competitors.”
Sarah Dawson – Managing Director said: “We are delighted to have Charlotte and Alex join CSM. Our clients have always benefited from the inhouse creative resource we currently offer; however, it was the right time to make these appointments on the back of an encouraging year of new business. The experience they bring enhances the current creative offering here in London, which will help us develop and deliver extraordinary campaigns for many of the industry’s most incredible partnerships.”
