Olly joined KISS in June 2017 as a Senior Account Executive, bringing experience from the consumer, B2B, healthcare and corporate sectors to the accounts team. His role includes bolstering a growing brand marketing team and delivering content to a variety of online, print and broadcast audiences.
As a PR graduate, Olly understands that the media landscape is forever evolving and he is always on the lookout for an opportunity to pitch a story. You can read what Olly had to say about the rise of “fake news” in his article.
Olly has an in-depth knowledge of international, national and local media and sees the value in building strong relationships with key figures within print, broadcast and online media. By communicating complex matters effectively in ways journalists understand and recognise, Olly has successfully led national campaigns for leading blue-chip companies such as 3M and Merck.
At KISS, Olly works closely with clients to create and implement paid and organic social media strategies. He recently worked with Cambridge University Press developing a global social media strategy for its Dedicated Teacher awards. Olly also leads macro and micro-influencer campaigns across B2C and B2B, helping clients build their relationship with key target audiences.
In addition to client facing work, Olly also represents KISS at the Public Relations Organisation International (PROI), where he’s ran workshops on how to better understand your target audience and attends consumer and healthcare groups across UK and Europe.
Olly spends most of his spare time in the gym and his lunch choices raise a few eyebrows in the office. Don’t be alarmed if you see him doing ab crunches at his desk or eating a tin of tuna at 5pm.
