Post Office Group Chief Retail Officer joins Taxi Studio’s Board

Taxi Studio, the brand expression agency behind notable brand campaigns including Tim Horton’s recent Holiday Range and Costa Coffee’s Christmas product launch, has made a series of appointments across the business, to fuel market and territorial growth.

The appointments follow a succession of major new business wins over the past twelve months, including roster appointments with Nestlé Health Science, The Coca-Cola Company, Mondeléz and Kimberly Clark.

As a demonstration of the calibre of talent that Taxi Studio is attracting, Martin Roberts, Group Chief Retail Officer of the Post Office, joins Taxi Studio’s board as Non-Executive Chairman.

Martin commented: “I am excited to be taking on this pivotal role at a key stage of growth for Taxi Studio, where the founders have created an innovative and creative agency that already has a global presence and supports some of the biggest brands around the world. I look forward to working with the executive team to drive forward the company strategy and ensure that it continues to deliver significant value for all stakeholders.”

Taxi’s founders have also implemented changes to their roles to assist and expedite the next phase of the business’s development and growth:

  • Ryan Wills will take the reins as agency CEO.
  • Spencer Buck will continue to lead Taxi’s creative output as Chief Creative Officer.
  • Alex Bane will head up Taxi’s client and new business generation teams as Chief Business Officer.

Ryan Wills, Taxi Studio’s Founder & CEO, commented: “Having already tapped into markets across North America, Asia and Europe, these major appointments come at an exciting period of growth for the business. We’re proud to have attracted talent from some of the most notable agencies and organisations globally. The strength of our newly reinforced team will enable us to expand our client base internationally and continue to deliver world-class, enduring brand expressions for global brands.”

Alex Bane, Founder & Chief Business Officer, commented: “I will be leading the client and new business teams to look after the interests of our existing clients and their brands, as well as seeking to develop new client relationships across the world”.
