Simon Dodd has joined EMO in the newly created role of Managing Partner. Simon has also joined the EMO Board.

Simon has over 30 years’ marketing communications experience gained in a variety of agency positions including Managing Director of former Omnicom agency, MBA and CEO of RLA Group, in addition to roles at TBWA\London and Chime Group. Simon was also the Regional Chairman of the IPA and is currently an elected Council Member of the IPA.

Most recently Simon founded Marketing Communications agency Digger. Founded in 2010, The Digger Agency has a team of 45 people with clients including holiday autos, ATS Euromaster, Whitbread/Premier Inn and DeBortoli Wines.

Simon said: “It took a lot to persuade me to walk away from Digger and back into the mainstream, but I really think that what EMO does is truly impressive and will become even more fundamental in the coming years. Being part of the most proactive MarComms group in the UK, Creston plc, was the icing on the cake”.

Peter Brown, Managing Director of EMO said: “Getting Simon here is a key part of our strategy adding strength and depth to the board and ensuring we are able to make the most of the opportunities ahead.” 

Tim Bonnet, Chairman of Creston Communications added: “We are delighted to have someone with Simon’s wealth of talent and experience join EMO and the wider Creston Group. His passion and understanding of EMO’s unique local proposition will really help take EMO to the next level.”
