Karmarama hires Jamie Mancini as Creative Director for PR and Influencer Discipline

Karmarama has appointed Jamie Mancini as Creative Director to join the PR and social influencer discipline. Mancini will bring his considerable experience in this area to work with the agency’s PR clients which include Virgin Trains, IKEA and Unilever.


Jamie will lead creative for the PR discipline within the agency whilst also working as part of the wider advertising and integrated creative team and report into Nik Studzinski, Chief Creative Officer at Karmarama.


Jamie, one of PR Week’s 2017’s 30 Under 30, leaves his role as Creative Associate at John Doe after 8 years working on accounts such as Facebook, Beats by Dre, Oatly, Itsu, and a global Pernod Ricard portfolio ranging from Absolut Vodka to Havana Club Rum.


Nik Studzinski said of the appointment “Jamie joining the Karmarama family will allow us to create work with even greater cultural currency and reflects the growing demand from our clients for connected creativity. He’s also teaching himself to speak Mandarin which tells you everything you need to know about him.”


“The industry is at an interesting juncture” Jamie said, “it’s not enough to simply be well versed in PR anymore. The best campaigns take inspiration from every corner of culture to create work with true resonance, which is exactly the type of work I’m looking forward to doing at Karmarama, with some of the best brains in the business.”


Jamie starts on the 25th June and joins Rosie Holden, who recently left John Doe to be Managing Partner at Karmarama in April of this year.
