Grey and Edirisinghe named group account directors, Lake as measurement lead.

The Pistol has unveiled a series of strategic appointments within its senior leadership team. Marketing executive Ashley Grey, who previously served as digital integration director at Havas Melbourne, has been named one of two new group account directors.

In conjunction with Grey’s appointment, the digital solutions agency has also announced the promotion of longstanding team member Yulia Edirisinghe to the role of group account director. 

Lastly, Julia Lake, who has been with The Pistol for over a decade, assumes the role of measurement lead.

“Our remit with clients is evolving at a rapid pace, and the calibre of our strategic counsel is quickly becoming a competitive advantage,” said Jaime Nosworthy, chief executive officer of The Pistol.

“The depth of our specialists integrated with the breadth of our account service leaders provide our clients with a clear line of sight on the impact of our partnership. 

“It’s amazing to see longstanding leaders in our business like Julia and Yulia team up with new talent like Ashley to challenge conventional ways of thinking, all centred around maximising the returns to our client partners, and building long-term, trusted relationships along the way.”

The Pistol also added two new hires to its senior team in July last year. Digital specialist Emilia Chambers was appointed head of strategy, while former The Pistol head of development Sarafraz Johl rejoined the business as head of technology.

Commenting on both appointments, Nosworthy, said at the time: “This is a time of great growth and expansion for our agency, and I’m thrilled to be adding new members to our team.

“Both Emilia and Johl bring a wealth of knowledge in their respective spaces to the business, along with a passion to deliver, and strong leadership skills to drive our business forward.
