Beardsell joins Fold7 in new content role

Beardsell will report to Marc Nohr, the chief executive,  and start in July.

Before joining Newcast in 2014, Beardsell was a founding partner and head of content at VCCP Content. 

Fold7 already produces content for clients such as Carlsberg. One of Beardsell’s key responsibilities will be to appoint a team for the new division, which will offer a "depth and breadth of service" that the agency says its clients have been asking for.

Nohr said: "Christine is one of the pioneers of branded content. We are looking forward to welcoming her fusion of creative, strategic, media and partnership thinking into the agency."
