Branding and communications agency Circus has appointed Jonathan Hall, former deputy managing director in charge of the branding and innovation division of Corporate Edge.
Hall joins as partner, with responsibility for developing product, service, corporate and location brands alongside Circus partners Dilys Maltby and Katherine Atkin.
‘At the moment, Circus is very much focused on public sector and service business,’ says Hall. ‘I have had lots of experience in other areas like financial services and utilities, which are areas Circus would obviously like to be doing more in.’
Hall’s former role at Corporate Edge will be indirectly filled by the recruitment of a fifth senior partner to the company’s board. Hall’s arrival represents one of two senior appointments for Circus, which also brings in former Interbrand associate director Saskia Diemer as an associate.
