The chief operating officer is a newly created role, which he will do alongside his existing CFO position, which he has held since November 2015.

Price (pictured) was a co-founder and finance partner at leading UK advertising agency HHCL and, on its acquisition by Chime Communications plc, became that company’s legal and commercial director.

He has also held roles as chief operating officer (UK & Ireland) of McCann Erickson and as global CFO/commercial director of ?What If! Holdings.

Peter Scott, executive chairman of Be Heard said: “Be Heard is expanding fast, and needs the right central team to support continued growth and maximise opportunities for the group. Robin is highly experienced in running marketing businesses and will now bring his characteristic rigor and commercial sense to the role of COO.”
