Digital PR agency announces new Commercial Director appointment

Digital PR agency Tank has recently appointed Phil Kelsey as Commercial Director.

Phil joins the Notttingham-based agency following a period of senior management positions in the motor industry, which include being Managing Director at Lincoln-based Dack Motor Group.

Phil, who has previously managed his own web agency, will be overseeing the commercial development of Tank and its creative sister company Warbox.

Tank and Warbox provide PR and digital, and creative services to a variety of brands across the UK, EMEA, North America and APAC.

The agencies have seen considerable growth in the software, satellite and healthcare sectors over the past year and the new commercial director role will seek to develop the existing networks, as well as further expanding into these and other growth sectors.

Phil said: “I’ve admired the culture and the growing talent within Tank for the best part of seven years now, having had clients in common and hearing nothing but praise from within my network.

“When the opportunity was presented to join the board and help strengthen the direction of Tank and Warbox through new markets, I was truly honoured.”

“There’s no limit to what we can achieve – the teams’ abilities are unrivalled and the leadership qualities make for a very exciting future – one that I believe in and am proud to represent.”

Trevor Palmer, director and founder of Tank and Warbox, said:

“This is something of a coup for our two agencies, as Phil is a well-respected and sought-after talent in our space.”

“After the initial lull that most experienced, we’ve actually achieved strong growth in the past 12 months, and we feel that now is the right time to execute the next phase of our investment plans.”
