Digital agency 360i London has appointed James Townsend as its new CEO, replacing Rob Connolly, 360i London CEO since December of 2013, who The Drum reports will “move back to Northern Ireland after six years within the Dentsu Aegis Network to pursue a new venture.”

Townsend arrives from Fallon London, where he has served as managing director since the beginning of 2013 and as head of account management since arriving in April, 2010. Prior to joining Fallon, Townsend spent seven years as a client services director with exposure London.

“James’ experience and accomplishments in helping clients creatively build their brands, as well as his alignment with 360i’s ‘Powered by Curiosity’ ethos, make him the perfect fit to lead our London office,” Bryan Wiener, chairman of 360i, told The Drum.
