Clarity PR has announced that Rachel Gilley has been appointed as UK managing director, from January.

Gilley was formerly managing director at brand communications agency Bite Global; she held numerous leadership positions during her 19 years with the renowned tech agency.

The appointment of Gilley to lead Clarity’s London office comes following a year of aggressive expansion for the firm, which included the acquisition of San Francisco-based agency DRS Media to add to existing offices in London, New York and Berlin.

Clarity’s UK team won briefs for over a dozen new clients in 2018, including international briefs for global, 3D holographic display company HYPERVSN and commercial space-tech pioneer Hiber.

“To attract someone of Rachel’s profile and pedigree to join Clarity is a huge coup,” says Clarity CEO and founder Sami McCabe. “It’s both a recognition of the strength of our position today, and a validation of our vision for the future of the agency. Rachel will doubtless contribute significantly to delivering against our ambitious growth plans – both locally and globally.”

Gilley adds, “I’ve been tracking Clarity’s growth story for some time, and have long been impressed by the agency’s ambition and dynamism. Clarity’s vision for the agency of the future is extremely exciting, and I’m looking forward to working closely with the global leadership team to make it a reality.”
