Financial services, energy and technology comms agency Aspectus has promoted Tim Focas to lead its capital markets sub-sector.
Focas will be responsible for providing strategic comms advice to existing capital markets clients and driving new business opportunities in the sector. He will report to group director Ellie Jackson, who leads Aspectus’s European financial services practice.
He has played a pivotal role in servicing the agency’s trading technology clients since joining from Weber Shandwick four years ago.
Focas said: “The support shown to me since my arrival has been truly humbling. The agency’s entrepreneurial passion, sector expertise and commitment to its talent are three central reasons behind our continued growth in capital markets.
He added: “Our creative, integrated campaigns are engaging target audiences across the space and helping to drive clients’ growth. All that, combined with our results guarantee, means that prospects of all sizes are interested in what we have to offer. With all this in mind, the new role comes with some hugely exciting client and new business opportunities.”
Jackson concluded: “Tim has been a big contributor to our financial services practice, driving a number of standout campaigns including Big Bang at 30 and the award-winning Lighter Side of Dark Trading that are typical of the agency.
“These achievements, coupled with his proven new business track record, made him the obvious fit to lead our growing capital markets business.”
