Jonathan McCallum joins the agency as Chief Strategy Officer from Ogilvy Group (WPP) where he was recently Head of Sports Marketing and Director of Sponsorship across the multi-agency group.

Jason Megson, Managing Director of George P. Johnson UK said; “To say that these appointments are game-changing for our agency is an understatement. Both Jonathan and Neil bring a level strategic insight and creativity that elevates GPJ to an industry leading position.
Their inclusion in our line-up supports a senior team brimming with talent, including recent hires such as Digital Strategy Director, Nick Riggall from Social Partners (WPP) and Account Director, Mary Hodson who recently joined GPJ from sponsorship activation specialists iLuka (CSM).
