Amongst a number of new hires this year, we have opened up a role within Kyan's senior leadership team. Rebecca Brennan joins our technology agency as Head of Marketing.
With 22 years of agency experience, including Ogilvy, Iris and MRM McCann, Rebecca’s most recent position was Managing Director of Cubo, an integrated creative agency based in London. Throughout her career, Rebecca has been passionate about solving problems through insight and innovation, and delivering those answers with hand-picked teams of specialists, from branding to engineering.
Rebecca plans to formalise our marketing strategy, bring in additional pillar clients, demonstrate the agency’s key strengths to a wider audience, and ensure that Kyan is known as a great place to work. She also hopes to expand our trophy cabinet by winning more awards not only for client work, but also the agency’s reputational value.
“I’ve known Kyan since I attended one of their “Toast” client networking events back in November 2018. My first impression was that they are a brilliant collective of people doing really interesting things with technology. I always got a great vibe when visiting Kyan HQ, as their culture feels very inclusive. I want to build on this, and help the business become a better version of itself for the future. Kyan is proudly independent, and that’s something I really believe in.”
Rebecca’s personal interests include running, having taken part in over 70 marathons to date, and boxing, a new hobby that has increased both her fitness and ability to think strategically in the moment. Her education spans from Aston University to Henley Business School, and includes studying business, strategic marketing, behaviour change and coaching, as well as her personal favourite, BJ Fogg’s Behavior Design Boot Camp at Stanford University, California.
“I’m always learning, and I love using that to bring new perspectives to the people I work with. It’s about understanding how we can all work better. I’m really looking forward to making Kyan famous for solving problems through great technology.”
Laurent Maguire, Kyan co-founder and CEO, met Rebecca through a mutual contact in the agency community.
“Rebecca brings invaluable large agency experience to the Kyan leadership team. She understands us, who we are and where we want to be. Her sales, brand and marketing expertise will really help us get there, and we’re excited to have her join Team Kyan.”
