Mr B & Friends has welcomed Will Langton to the company as Financial Director.

Will joins the agency following a move back from Sydney, where he lived and worked for eight years, and transformed Cohort – a Digital Media and AdTech start up – into one of Australia’s top 20 fastest growing companies. Cohort went from a small office on an industrial estate to a £15 million turnover business, providing Will with invaluable experience of building and expanding a company.

His remit at Mr B & Friends will be to ensure the sustainable growth of the company through maintaining positive financial health and profitability. Will joins the Senior Leadership Team alongside Creative Director Kate Gorringe, Strategy and Planning Director Adam Partridge, Digital Strategy Director Adrian Bryers and Client Partnership Director Paul Kirkcaldy.

Agency CEO Simon Barbato comments, “We’re delighted to welcome Will to Mr B & Friends. This is a new and crucial role for the agency as we move into the next stage of our maturity, so it was hugely important that we appointed a Finance Director who has significant experience and the real clout needed to help to take us forward. Will has this in abundance. He’s a very welcome addition to our Senior Leadership Team”.

Will says, “I’ve always been interested in the creative brand space and Mr B & Friends appealed because I like what they’d achieved as a private company, and I also felt that I could contribute to the business. I’m excited about joining the team.”

Will took up the position on 14th June.
