Dare appoints Chris Woodward from Saatchi Pro as its new managing director.

Chris Woodward moves from Saatchi & Saatchi Pro where he worked as managing director, after enjoying senior roles at Rapier (chief operating officer) and The&Partnership (managing partner).

The new MD will be responsible for leading the Dare team both in its own offices and where it works in-house with clients.

Sharon Whale, chief executive officer for OLIVER UK, said: “Chris is a truly modern, integrated marketer with a huge breadth of experience – from managing clients and leading teams to launching companies. This is the exact entrepreneurial spirit that the Dare brand relishes, and also what we look for as we continue to grow our ever-expanding brandtech network under You & Mr Jones.”

Chris Woodward added: “I am passionate about helping clients deliver highly effective marketing, so Dare is the perfect home for me. We have the opportunity to create total customer experience strategies, which Dare, Inside Ideas Group and You & Mr Jones can be deployed against.
