Managing director Luke Pierson said Willocks’ appointment into a key leadership position provided greater diversity, creativity and leadership capability for Heyday.

Meanwhile, Enoka has stepped into his new role from his position as director of content. Pierson says Enoka will be working closely with Willocks, and they bring a strong pairing to the leadership and strategy of the company.

Willocks starts at Heyday at the end of July.
