We’re delighted to announce that Rick Jenner has joined Freestak as our new Client Services Director.
Rick will be looking after all our existing and new clients, delivering excellent, creative and impactful projects. He will also be contributing to the development of new, innovative products within Freestak and help us position our business as the leading endurance sports marketing agency.
At the end of last year we started looking for a new member of the team to help take Freestak to the next level. We were looking for an entrepreneurial person with a proven track record and a passion for endurance sports to deliver for our clients in running, cycling, triathlon and the outdoors. We are really pleased that Rick fits the bill.
Rick brings a wealth of experience to the team, having spent 13 years working for some of the UK’s best-known companies including ITV, News UK and Virgin Media. He worked in various commercial, marketing and insight roles helping those businesses understand and reach existing and new customers with great propositions and campaigns. For the last three years he’s been working with a number of organisations in endurance sport helping them to develop their businesses, including working on Sport England’s This Girl Can campaign for running.
Rick is a keen endurance sports person himself, regularly participating in a range of sports including cycling, diving, mountaineering, triathlon. His main passion is running, however, be it short or long distance, on the road or on the trails. He runs regularly for Ranelagh Harriers in South-West London, has completed several ultra-marathons including the Marathon des Sables and Comrades, and will be trying to beat his marathon PB of 2:58 in London this year. Rick also shares our passion for helping more people find and enjoy the benefits of endurance sport.
Freestak launched three years ago helping endurance sports brands connect and engage with their customers. Rick will play a key role in the business – developing relationships with news clients, delivering exceptional work and supporting our new technology platform. He brings a wealth of experience and skills from the corporate world to our growing business and is a key addition in our mission to become the leading endurance sports marketing agency.
