In her new role, Osborn will lead Gravity Road’s creative operations department, working with the creative, production and client teams and partners from outside the business to execute projects as effectively as possible.

During her eight years at BBH London, Osborn oversaw work including a new showroom concept for Audi and a partnership leading to the Universal Music artist Paul McCartney starring in Bang & Olufsen's "living room tour".

Gravity Road has also appointed Samirah Ravin, the finance director at the travel PR company PRCo, as its financial and commercial director.

"We are leading the way in new ways of behaviour in the agency world, and the arrival and Joanna and Samirah will help to further build this ethos."
