Oliver Tillard has joined CMS Strategic as Account Director. He will be responsible for developing communication, engagement, and PR strategies as well as managing the delivery of campaign for our clients.
Oliver was previously a Senior Communications Manager at the Ministry of Defence, managing a team responsible for developing strategic aims and implementing communication plans to effectively engage and inform public audiences, and the media, about Defence policies and initiatives.
