Walker Media, which claims to be the fastest-growing independent

media company in the UK, has taken on new staff to cope with

expansion.



They include Charlotte Brooks, a television account manager formerly

with CIA Medianetwork, and regional manager Adrian Darby, previously at

MediaCom TMB.



A further five appointments will be announced in the next few weeks.



Founding partner Christine Walker said: ’In just over two years our UK

billings have doubled. We predict our rapid growth to continue as we

consolidate our already extensive expertise in the ’new economy’.’



The bulk of the agency’s growth is from international assignments and

internet or technology clients such as Freeserve, Excite,

SharePeople.com and BOL.com.



Paul Alexander, international director, said accounts such as British

Airways had ’expanded significantly in the past six weeks’.
