Foco appoints James Rowe as account director

Fintech content marketing consultancy Foco has recruited James Rowe as account director, following a pair of new business wins.

Rowe has more than 10 years’ agency experience, including senior roles at Kazoo Communications, 3 Monkeys Zeno, Finn Partners and Frank PR.

He has worked across consumer technology and B2B accounts for clients including Samsung, Microsoft and Three. To help Foco realise its ambitious growth plans, Rowe will assist the team with creative storytelling, content strategy and client consultancy.

Michael Taggart, co-founder at Foco, said: “Tech runs through James’s blood. He has an enviable background in helping well-known brands tell their stories in meaningful and thought-provoking ways – exactly what Foco needs to help consolidate our position as the go-to agency for the brightest of fintech start-ups.”

Rowe added: “I’m thrilled to be part of such a progressive company that not only mirrors the can-do attitude of the clients it serves, but also recognises the greater role that content now plays in today’s PR and marketing mix – I can’t wait to get stuck in.”
