After a busy and successful 2022, during which Rika has established new partnerships with Caterham Cars, Cox Marine and Delphi Autoparts, the agency is delighted to announce its expansion and welcome Steven Wakeling to the team. Steven has over two decades of experience in leadership roles at media publishers, startups and agencies, and has undertaken key positions in some of the UK's most innovative businesses. Prior to joining Rika, Steven was Head of Strategy at Forward, lastminute.com's media and marketing division.
In his new role as a Senior Consultant, Steven will be responsible for strategic projects, helping clients optimise their marketing spend and technology stack.
I am delighted to join Rika's talented team. As a previous partner and client, their breadth and depth of expertise in business strategy, media and their approach to marketing and technology is second to none. As a member of the Rika team, I look forward to helping the company achieve even greater success
