Benson brings extensive experience to her new role at Ignis, following positions at agencies such as RAPP, Oglivy and The Engine Group. Her skillset encompasses retail, FMCG, charity and financial services and she has recently won pitches for Heist, 23andme and Samsung.

Benson said: "Joining Ignis is an exciting next step. Over its 29-year history they have worked for a diverse range of clients – from Jameson Whiskey and Fuller’s to Sheraton Hotels, Betfair and Cuticura. I can’t wait to jump in and help Ignis continue their business growth."
