As we prepare to celebrate turning 13 we are thrilled to welcome two new members to our senior leadership team.

Phillippa Barrett joins as Account Director, and is charged with overseeing Brilliant’s major food and beverage brands, and comes at a time when we have enjoyed 100% renewal of our retainer client work, as well as a number of new client wins in the past 6 months. 

Phillippa is a marketing specialist with 20 years’ cross-channel experience at marketing agencies and in-house, across a range of sectors including Food & Drink, Retail, Interior Design, Automotive, FMCG and Financial Services. Phillippa was previously Client Services lead on Diageo, Barilla and Unilever’s Dove.

Sarah joins as Marketing Director and will be responsible for crafting Brilliant’s own marketing strategy, as the business looks to prioritise communication of its brand and celebrate the continued success of its team.  

Sarah comes with 20 years’ experience working for and with agencies where she has been responsible for building out internal marketing teams. Helping agencies lead by example when it comes to what a great marketing strategy looks like. 

Speaking on the exciting new appointments, Mike Davis, Managing Director said:

“We’re really pleased to welcome Sarah and Phillippa to Brilliant, marking a significant step in our journey to be the leading social media agency for food and beverage brands in the UK.

Their addition to our senior leadership team is vital for our ongoing growth, reflecting our dedication to our values and commitment to both our outstanding team and our renowned food and beverage partners.”

Laurra Davis, Founder of Brilliant, shared her thoughts on the two new senior hires:

“One of the things I’m proud that we can offer at Brilliant is true flexibility for working parents like Sarah and Phillippa, ensuring they get the full benefit of working for an agency like ours with the support they need to balance their family commitments. This is not just a perk; it’s a core value of our company culture.

They are both a fantastic addition to Brilliant and have already made a great impact!”
