This Place today announces the appointment of David Hancock as Managing Director of This Place UK, a global design studio focussed on creating digital experiences that help leading brands grow their marketshare.
This Place was founded four years ago when CEO Dusan Hamlin and Global Creative Director Ben Aldred saw a gap in the market to create an internationally focused and independent design innovation studio, that puts user experience at the heart of the process. Since then, the business has grown massively with offices in London, Seattle and Tokyo working for some of the worlds biggest brands including T-Mobile USA, Delhaize, UBS and Woolworths.
David has joined the London office and will oversee the development of the UK business.
Dusan Hamlin, This Place’s CEO commented:
“We are delighted to welcome David to the This Place family. Frictionless digital interactions have become the great differentiator for brands wanting to embrace and grow their business in the digital marketplace. As our business has evolved in Seattle and Tokyo, and the demand for brands to be ahead of the curve has increased, we now need an MD on the ground in the UK to drive the business forward”.
David Hancock, the new MD of This Place said:
“I couldn’t be more excited about joining This Place as it is in a perfect position to capitalise on the extraordinary potential for brands to become truly customer experience led businesses. We know that great strategy and design sets good and great brands apart and I am excited to lead a company that makes this a reality.”
Before joining This Place, David ran onebite, an award winning integrated creative agency and Fuerte a mobile agency helping brands interact through mobile, web, virtual and augmented reality.
