Award winning digital agency Reckless, today announced the appointment of
Steven Swann as Creative Director.

Steve has won numerous awards for his work and joins Reckless after gaining years of experience in leading agencies including Amaze, McCann and most recently, Mando.
He has worked across various clients including Disney, Toyota, Aldi, Unilever and Diesel to name but a few.

Steve said, “Reckless is a company I have been paying attention to for quite a few years now. I’ve known Callum and some of the team for a while and it’s great to be joining them when the agency is expanding as it is. It’s a crucial time for Reckless and I’m excited to have the opportunity to push creativity across all departments and show what we are capable of with the great team that is already established.”

Reckless enjoyed 60% growth throughout 2017, picking up key accounts with Sodexo, Willerby Holiday Homes, Horizon Global and The Original Tour.

MD and Founder, Callum Reckless, said this senior appointment marks the start of the next stage of Reckless’ development:

“We have an extremely exciting journey ahead of us and the appointment of Steve marks a key milestone in the development of the team and wider business. I’m really excited to have Steve on board to see him nurture the creative team and enhance our creative output. His experience is of great value to us and I look forward to him challenging us and driving us forward throughout 2018 and beyond.”

“We welcomed a lot of strong recruits in 2017 and the appointment of Steve continues this trend. He is the first of many important recruits we have lined up for 2018 who will help us shape this pivotal year ahead.”

The next 12 months will see the agency expand its service offering across Europe. Reckless, who already have bases in Chester & London, is expected to announce the opening of an Amsterdam office later this year to support their multilingual digital marketing services.
