Psona will be led by Adam Leigh, the chief executive, Jon Canning, the executive creative director, Andy Snuggs, the managing partner, and Jenny Phillips, the client services director.

Jacaranda, the film production agency that Communisis acquired in 2014, will be rebranded as Psona Films and Yomego, its social media shop, will become Psona Glasgow.
