Creative technology and innovation agency CURB has appointed Adam Azor as Managing Director.
Azor (right of picture) joins CURB from Jack Morton Worldwide where he was Senior Vice President, Integrated and Digital Marketing. Prior to Jack Morton he was Head of Brand Experience at creative agency BMB.
He will take on the leadership of CURB, working closely alongside Anthony Ganjou, CURB’s CEO and founder (left of picture) and has been tasked with driving growth for the agency and its clients by focusing on technology and innovation in brand experience.
CURB, one of the most awarded creative technology and innovation agencies in the UK, works with leading brands including Virgin Media, Sony and Nissan and was recently acquired by CSM Live, part of the Chime Group. Since the acquisition, CSM Live has made substantial investment in CURB, with the recruitment of Azor the latest example of its commitment to support the growth of the agency.
Adam Azor, Managing Director of CURB, says, “I’ve had an envious eye on CURB for many years; their extraordinary work demonstrates what is possible when the power of brand experience meets true innovation and technology. The standalone desktop digital age is dead but we’re at the dawn of something much more exciting and important, a real world that brands can harness digitally. Now with the added backing and global reach of CSM Live, the potential for growth at CURB is huge. I can’t wait to get started.”
He began his career as co-founder of marketing agency Incognito in 1997 and went on to lead accounts at agencies including BD Network, Claydon Heeley and Mediator Communications. During his 20 years in the industry he has worked with many top brands including Coca Cola, Sony, Carling, Microsoft, Corona, Dairylea, Cineworld and BBC Children in Need.
Adam is also a prolific industry speaker, writer, and awards judge. In January 2017, he was elected to the board of UK marketing industry trade body, the Institute of Promotional Marketing (IPM).
Anthony Ganjou, CEO, CURB, says: “Adam is joining us at an extraordinarily exciting time in the company’s history. We are rapidly expanding globally and also bringing our expertise in innovation and technology to the blue-chip network of CSM clients and partners. Our goal is to be a top 5 brand experience agency in the UK within three years.”
CURB was founded in 2008 with the aim of pushing the boundaries of how technology, science, people, and space can be integrated to help clients bring big ideas to life and drive Out Of Home (OOH) media innovation, online/offline content creation and consumer experience. The company has delivered over 200 media firsts for clients worldwide working with both agencies and brands.
