Spinnaker has appointed Wendy Hook as its Client Services Director.

Wendy worked at Spinnaker previously as an Account Director and then Group Account Director between 2004 and 2008. She left Spinnaker then to spend some time living in New York, where she worked for an independent digital agency called Heartbeat Ideas, which has since become part of the Publicis Group. While there Wendy reported into the SVP of Client Services and Strategy, leading the client services team and working alongside the head of the planning and analytics department. After five years out there Wendy decided to come back to the UK and is now to head up the Clients Services team at Spinnaker and lead its development, whilst acting as a senior point of contact for strategic direction for the agency’s clients including AB World Foods, Middlesex University and Walkabout Bars.

Robert Goldsmith, Managing Partner of Spinnaker said: “We’re delighted to have Wendy back in the UK and that she’s decided to rejoin the agency. 2014 is already shaping up to be an exciting year for us and I know that Wendy is the right person to lead our client services team as we consolidate the business we won last year and pitch for new business in the coming months.”

Spinnaker has also appointed Nina Kang as Senior Account Director working across Hipp Organic, Bord Bia and IMEX. Nina has worked at a number of the UK’s most successful and established agencies including Proximity, Tequila and Haygarth. She most recently worked at LIDA where she worked on the Boots One Healthcare business running high volume DM programmes and working across the Christmas app.

Spinnaker was appointed by Middlesex University and the Walkabout chain of bars in 2013 and will be celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year.
