International branding agency StormBrands announced the appointment of a new non-executive director, Brian Mansfield, to its board.

The appointment will provide valuable knowledge and experience to support the leadership team in growing the agencies’ business serving clients in diverse markets worldwide. 

“Brian brings a genuine depth of business leadership in the brand marketing and design sector, as MD and then-chairman of Taxi Studio and as a board director of the DBA [Design Business Association],” says Jonny Westcar, managing director of StormBrands.

He adds, “We’ve been on a terrific journey over the last few years and will continue to go through important change – having recently implemented major changes including the appointment of a new creative director for our London studio and the relocation of our Yorkshire studio to Leeds – Brian’s experience with independent creative agencies and his industry profile will be invaluable as we continue to develop and mature as a global brand business.”

Mansfield’s previous roles have included being director of the DBA, chairman of Taxi Studio – where he was responsible for guiding the business through a period of significant growth – and managing director at Blue Marlin in Sydney, Australia.

“I’m delighted to be joining StormBrands and believe the diverse mix of skills, and minds, in the business offers great business potential as well as an excellent partnership proposition for clients. I’m looking forward to joining the board and working with them to build on the success so far,” says Mansfield.
