Geoff Stickler takes Park Village MD role

Geoff Stickler, Euro RSCG London's former head of TV, has been named as the managing director of the production company Park Village.

Stickler replaces Freya Noble, who left the company in April. He will report directly to Park Village's co-founder, Peter Webb.

Park Village has a team of five directors, which includes Webb, Charlie Stebbings, Jim Hayton, Omid Nooshin and James Rogan.

Before joining Euro RSCG, Stickler was a partner at the production company Great Guns, which he joined in 2003. At Great Guns, he produced work for Virgin Trains, McDonald's, Flora and Persil.

Before that, he launched the TV production arm of Dare, the digital and creative agency part-owned by Bartle Bogle Hegarty.

Stickler said: "My aim for Park Village is to take it forward for the next 30 years by casting the net wider to embrace emerging media and new technology. While no production company can take its eye off the ball of traditional advertising, we have become less reliant upon TV and more involved with alternative means of communications."

Park Village has recently been responsible for shooting the Marks & Spencer's food campaign, KFC, Debenhams, and the making of the Honda "choir" ad.
