In London, online community specialist C Space has promoted Richie Jones to Director of Partnerships, and Claire Sippitt to Consultancy Director.
Owned by Omnicom, C Space offers services including private online communities, in-person live events, visual storytelling, co-creation workshops and business consulting. Jones joined in 2016 as Consultancy Director, having previously worked for online community specialist Verve as a Director, and at Tuned In Research as an AD. He began his career at FreshMinds, where he spent eight years, and latterly served as Lead Research Consultant, Consumer Team. In his new role, Jones takes over from Kathryn Blanshard, who was recently promoted to UK MD.
Sippitt has been with the business since 2012 - initially as a Junior Consultant, and more recently, as Associate Director. Before this, she worked for Kantar Millward Brown as Account Researcher and 2CV as a Research Executive. As Consultancy Director, she will use her insight and client management skills to support clients, while building and developing her team.
Blanshard comments: 'I'm delighted that we are able to put two talented team members into leadership roles that will allow them to have a bigger impact on our people and clients. Richie's new role as the Director of Partnerships role allows our clients to ask more of us - to evolve to meet the changing needs of their businesses and increase the impact that our work can have to help them grow. Claire's promotion is a testament to her growth mindset. Her ability to cultivate strong, trusted relationships with her clients and her team is second to none and we're looking forward to seeing Claire build her own consultancy unit at C Space'.
