Dentsu Aegis Network, a UK-headquartered media and digital marketing company, has hired Dani Filer as global director of communications and marketing, starting next year.

Filer will take responsibility for promoting Dentsu Aegis Network's agency brands, which include digital marketing business iProspect and Japanese ad agency Dentsu, its products, services and executives.

She said: "I am delighted to join Dentsu Aegis Network, one of the world's fastest growing and digitally pioneering agency groups. The success of the organisation is largely due to its strong leadership and great people. I am looking forward to working with the team to further evolve the brands and culture, which in turn will help our clients achieve their business ambitions."
