Aldous, who was deputy head of data at Proximity, is tasked with growing the Oliver Group’s data planning and analytics offering.

Sanderson, formerly MD of Chime-owned TeamSpirit Share, has been appointed as MD of operations. He will have overall operational responsibility for Oliver in the UK, with a focus on driving performance and efficiency for both the agency and clients.

Howarth, who led digital accounts for clients including luxury car brand Infiniti at TMW, joins as managing partner and will lead clients including the AA and BMW.

Whale said: "Oliver is a challenger to agency status quo and we know from experience that to power disruption, you need disruptors and innovators.

"Claire, James and Ed have that as part of their DNA, as well as experience in spades. All three have been brought on board to help us manage a spate of integrated and CRM accounts that Oliver has started to win. As we drive the business forward, our mission is to bring every relevant idea and skill necessary straight into our clients’ worlds, including data."
