At Unlimited, he will help the company’s four divisions deliver services for clients using the Human Understanding Lab’s insight approaches, such as its digital analytics platform.

Unlimited formed Human Understanding Lab in 2020 to bring together behavioural science expertise from across its agencies, including Walnut Unlimited and Realise Unlimited.

Tim Hassett, chief executive, Unlimited, said: “Bringing Simon on board for our Human Understanding Lab was a no-brainer. HUL has been instrumental in recent key new pitch wins, and with some major projects with our existing clients.

“I know Simon’s experience will be invaluable in helping further bolster our clients’ businesses.”
