Palmer set for advertising and comms agency, M&C Saatchi

THE MEDIA manager at Glasgow Warriors rugby club is to join world-renowned advertising and communications agency, M&C Saatchi.

Mark Palmer has been with the Warriors for the last 18 months having previously spent a year – in a similar capacity – with Edinburgh Rugby, which, like Glasgow, is funded by Scottish Rugby.

He joined Scottish Rugby from the Sunday Times Scotland, where – until its editorial complement was cut by around three-quarters in May two years ago –  he had been a sports writer, on the staff.

M&C Saatchi includes RBS among its clients, which are big supporters of rugby, including Scottish Rugby.

Palmer is joining as an account director, based in Scotland.

His post at Glasgow Warriors is being advertised here.
