Oystercatchers hires Posterscope’s Gill Huber as managing partner

The former agency boss replaces Jude Bridge at the helm of the marketing consultancy.

Gill Huber is to join marketing consultancy Oystercatchers as managing partner, bringing with her over two decades of agency experience.

She replaces Jude Bridge, who has decided to step down and return to her non-executive and portfolio career after two years in the role.

Huber has spent the last seven years of her career at outdoor media specialist Posterscope. She joined the company as head of marketing and communications in 2014, before being promoted to chief client officer in 2018. As CCO, she was responsible for building client growth through creative and dynamic integrated communications.

Prior to Posterscope, Huber worked at media agencies including Starcom, OMD and Vizeum, working with brands including Heineken, McDonald’s, Boots and Gillette.

She is also a member of the MSc strategic marketing advisory board at Imperial College Business School and sits on the Women in Advertising and Communication Leadership (WACL) executive as honorary secretary.

“Given the turbulent times we’re all experiencing, the need for brand growth will accelerate and, from my experience, strong client and agency partnerships working in the best possible way is crucial to winning,” Huber says.

“I’m looking forward to working with a terrific team to nurture and support successful, enduring client and agency relationships set up to navigate new challenges and opportunities ahead.”

Oystercatchers, which is owned by Marketing Week publisher Xeim, has recently led pitches and projects for brands including Samsung, Macmillan, Which?, Wickes and John West.

Richard Robinson will continue in his role as Oystercatchers’ managing director, while Suki Thompson remains chair.
