Oystercatchers has appointed Josh Cave to Client Partner after three years as Client Director, in recognition of his outstanding work at the intermediary. 


Josh originally joined Oystercatchers in 2014, before moving into agency new business with the Be Heard Partnership and a stint in Australia with The Works, part of CapGemini.  


Pitch intermediary Oystercatchers has seen a fourfold increase in marketing transformation projects across all disciplines in the past six months, with no sign of this trend abating soon. Josh has been at the forefront of many of Oystercatchers’ most high-profile client projects, both domestically and internationally, including John Lewis Partnership & Dow Jones. Josh has also played a pivotal role in driving our rapidly growing creative excellence training and agency model evaluation.   


On his promotion, Cave said, “It has been an incredible journey since rejoining Oystercatchers. I am delighted with the growth and rejuvenation of the business over the last few years, which is testament to the Oystercatchers’ leadership team along with the fantastic wider team we have been building. In my new role as Client Partner, I am thrilled to continue driving our values of collaboration and creativity to deliver exceptional results for our clients, and furthering Oystercatchers’ position as a leader in the industry.” 


Gill Huber, Managing Partner at Oystercatchers added, “Josh’s expertise, dedication and passion for our industry can be seen in all his work and is felt by all his client and agency partners. While the number and complexity of pitches continues to grow, we are also seeing clients wanting to evaluate and update their agency models to be confident they are best set up for now and for the future.  Clients are also coming to us to ensure their own teams are furnished with the best skills to allow them to continue to work brilliantly alongside their partners and accelerate the marketing performance of their businesses. Josh will be instrumental in helping our clients navigate this space and ensure their success.”
