The Nest Media bolsters leadership team.

Alasdair Burns joins as co-owner & Growth Director

Just one year after our official unveiling, The Nest is bringing in Alasdair Burns as co-owner and Growth Director to help build on what has been a very strong start for the agency.

Alasdair joins from McCann Bristol with previous agency experience at Carat and Bray Leino, following time spent in financial services marketing.

Independent Paid Media agency working with growing businesses

Having launched in April 2021, The Nest is quickly establishing itself as one of the leading media planning & buying agencies in the South West, working with growing businesses from multiple sectors across the UK.

An independent, full service Paid Media agency, The Nest offers all the services you’d find at a network agency, delivered with the love, care and attention of a smaller boutique agency.

Clients include Portman Dental Care, Avery Row, CAMRA, Leachs, Dust Arrest, Bristol Old Vic, Hampton Court Castle and NHS South West.

Exciting times for The Nest and its expanding client base

Client Director, Edd Bowsher says “These are incredibly exciting times for The Nest. Alasdair brings with him a wealth of experience from both client-side and big agency networks and has an enviable record in helping businesses grow.”

“Alasdair is a seriously impressive operator whose strategic clout and tactical deftness will serve both current and future clients proudly.”

Alasdair adds, “I’m thrilled to be joining The Nest at this stage in its journey. Edd and the team have achieved a lot in a short amount of time and I’m eager to come on board and keep pushing the company forward.

Bristol is a city with a strong independent spirit and serious commercial clout, and we’re building a paid media agency to match that.”
