Leeds based integrated marketing agency, Fantastic Media, have announced the appointment of three new staff members, across the client services, digital and graphic design departments.
The agency is delighted to welcome Gaby Kirwin as marketing account executive, Jack Norman as digital marketing manager and Alfie Johnston as creative designer.
The expansion of the team is a response to a more digitally centred strategy across the client portfolio, as well as the agency’s obsession for continual improvement. The Board took the decision to recruit in these key areas in December 2020. The agency plans to have a renewed offering across all digital marketing channels by the end of Q1 2021.
Gaby joins Fantastic from a client-side role within events management. She had previously worked at Bewonder and GIG Retail, with notable clients such as ASDA and Victoria Gate Casino.
“Fantastic has a reputation as an exciting and results driven agency and one I really wanted to be a part of. It was essential that my next role allowed me to play a key role in the success achieved for clients and to broaden my skills across digital marketing” Gaby commented.
Jack has a strong paid social and digital marketing background, also working client side at The Skills Network, a training provider in the education sector. He stated: “My role at Fantastic will be to drive forward our paid media and digital offering to both B2B and B2C clients using channels such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Google Ads.
I’m really pleased to have joined the team here at Fantastic Media. I feel, despite the current climate it’s an exciting time and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to work alongside a team of experts that are built on driving results and constant improvement.”
Originally from Northumberland, Alfie Johnston holds a master’s degree in Branded Experience from Northumbria University. After graduating, he spent time working overseas before joining Banana Kick, where he was involved in various brand activations.

With many of our clients experiencing record results online, I’m delighted to announce a further step change in our digital marketing capabilities.
