Space & Time strengthens leadership team with CEO and MD appointments

As we move into the next phase of our agency growth journey, we’re pleased to announce two senior leadership promotions of Chris Jones to chief executive office (CEO) and Heather Connearn to managing director.  


Formerly the managing director of Space & Time, Chris steps into the newly-created role of CEO, where he will be responsible for setting the overall vision and future direction for the business as it continues with its ambitious growth plan.


Heather is tasked with driving the business forward, both strategically and commercially. This includes a keen focus on the business’ client experience and operational functions to ensure clients are receiving the best possible service and value. She will also maintain her focus on talent, ensuring the business attracts, trains and retains industry-leading talent through our award-winning training programme, Space Academy.


Chris comments: “Changes to market conditions are forcing good businesses to be agile and think innovatively and we have a long track record, alongside our clients, of achieving this. Doing so relies on clear leadership and effective communication throughout the business, which is why this is a particularly exciting time to step into a new leadership role and challenge”.


Heather adds: “Space & Time is a fast-growing agency with long-standing clients. Central to this is the talent that sits at the very heart of everything we do and stand for. Having the opportunity to grow my career alongside that of the business has been a real privilege and is testament to the agency’s people-first culture. Against a backdrop of continued economic uncertainty, I will be laser focused on creating opportunities for the team and delivering outstanding service and value to our clients.”
