Former American Express product development head Phil Marsland will join the operator in the newly created head of customer marketing role, while Charlie Smith, who has been acting as head of brand and marketing communications for the last four months has had his position made permanent.
Before working for American Express, Marsland spent eight years at financial services company Capital One where he ran its internet channel and new ventures division.
Smith left Orange for Vodafone three years ago, and has since worked on Vodafone’s recent mobile internet and mobile broadband advertising as well Vodafone’s music programme.
Phil Marsland will join Vodafone on 15 September. Both will report to Ian Shepherd, Vodafone’s consumer director.
