Space has announced two senior level hires - both from creative agency BD Network.

Jim Carless joins the agency as head of client services, and Tim Dalton as an account director.  

Carless was previously head of experiential at BD Network. Before that, he was managing director at Brand Activation.

He will lead Space’s client services team, and brings 18 years of below-the-line experience from sectors including FMCG, automotive, entertainment, and financial services.
Dalton also joins from BD Network where he was an account director. He joined the agency in 2006 as a graduate. His recent client work includes Olympic activations for Coca-Cola and Powerade at London 2012.
Space has also promoted three senior members of its team. Sean Kelly is now group account director, whilst Westley Bellew and Diane Monks have been promoted to creative group head and head of art, respectively.
David Atkinson, managing partner at Space, said: "Space is growing, both in terms of clients and products. It’s exciting to be able to mirror this growth with the continued creation of an ambitious and formidable team.

"Both Jim and Tim have got fantastic pedigrees within the industry - they bring excellent cross-platform experience which matches Space’s media neutral approach to client work. The new roles for Sean, Di and Wes are acknowledgement of what they have achieved, but also reflect their great potential to grow with the agency over the coming years."
