Jane Ratcliffe, the chief executive of the agency, put a management board in place at the WPP-owned agency in November last year, but had held off appointing a sole managing director. Ratcliffe said the new appointment was as a result of an increased workload at the agency.

Jowett joined MediaCom in 2000 as deputy broadcast director. He missed out on the agency’s head of broadcast role, which went to Steve Bignell in December 2005, but was made commercial director in 2007.

He started his career in media as a television buyer for Zenith, later switching to BMP to handle the Scottish Courage account. He moved across on the same account to MediaVest, where he became the TV buying director on Walkers and Associated Newspapers.
