Freeman names new global president

Phil Molyneux has been named as the new president of Freeman, taking over from Bob Priest-Heck who is now the CEO. A trained engineer in computer technology, Molyneux has had a long career in brand side with Sony and later, Dyson. 

Priest-Heck said Molyneux's experience beyond event marketing is valuable to Freeman, and the brand experience agency would continue to seek talent across all industries. “His innate ability to attract and retain the most competitive talent in the industries he represents brings the depth and perspective needed to be a vital president," said Priest-Heck.

On his new role, Molyneux said: “As I’ve travelled around and participated in some of our biggest events, I see incredible potential both for our clients, as they engage with their customers through live brand experiences, as well as for our people, as they continue to put the customer at the centre of all that they do.
