Publicis Media UK, parent company of Starcom, Zenith, Digitas, Spark Foundry and Performics, has confirmed Mandy Rayment as its UK Director of Communications.

Rayment joins after a 12-year tenure at Dentsu Aegis, where she held numerous senior roles over a 12-year period, most recently as Director of Communications and Marketing UK&I. 

She will be responsible for leading all internal and external communications for Publicis Media and its agencies, and starts the role in April.

At Dentsu, Rayment was a central figure in setting up its LGBT+ network, being founder and co-chair. In 2019, she was picked as a ‘Top 10 Future Leader’ at the British LGBT+ Awards.

Sue Frogley, CEO of Publicis Media UK said: “Mandy is highly respected in her field and brings years of industry experience that will be invaluable as we look to build on our recent successes. Our paths have crossed before so I’m thrilled to be working with her again and welcome her on board.” 

Mandy Rayment said: “I have enjoyed 12 wonderful years at Dentsu Aegis Network, but the opportunity to join Sue and the team at Publicis Media to help support their ambitious plans was too good to refuse. It’s a really exciting time to be joining and I can’t wait to get started.”

Publicis Media sits along three other solutions providers from France's Publicis Groupe, namely Publicis Communications, Publicis.Sapient and Publicis Healthcare.
