Quantum Media promotes Clays to managing director

LONDON - Quantum Media, the BLM Group-owned online agency, has promoted director of interactive strategy Dan Clays to managing director.

Clays joined BLM in 2000 as director of interactive from PHD, where he was a TV group head. Before that, he worked in the TV department at Carat.

He will lead a team of 20 staff, who work across clients including Wanadoo, Thomas Cook, Intelligent Finance, Reebok and Domino's Pizza.

The agency recently added the online accounts for Suzuki and Nikon to this list.

Steve Booth, chief executive of BLM, said: "Following a succession of new-business wins and continued heavy investment by our clients into digital media, Quantum has moved on to another level, which Dan has been at the heart of for some time."

Quantum has also appointed former Carat account director Dom Finney to an account director role. He will be charged with coordinating the agency's buying effort, and developing its research and analysis division Quantum Intelligence.

Aiden Mark is also joining the agency from Starcom Motive as senior planner.

Clays said: "Everyone here has a very clear perspective on the service we are able to offer which is all about making a sizeable impact on clients' business through online media. Advertisers need more choice in this area than just the default solution of their existing offline agency."
