Aquent Appoints Aliza Sweiry as Managing Director UK


Aquent/Vitamin T, the specialist recruiters for creative, digital and marketing talent, has appointed Aliza Sweiry as Managing Director UK.

As country lead for the UK, Sweiry will be responsible for more than 40 staff across both brands on the sales and delivery function. She is taking over from Mike Berry, who is retiring after 6 years at Aquent.

Sweiry joined the company in 2013 in a business development role and quickly progressed through the ranks before becoming Aquent’s Regional Director in 2017. In her new position, Sweiry will oversee business operations, including budget and strategy, as well as managing the corporate sales team.

A commercially focussed professional with a strong background in business development, Sweiry will be tasked with driving business growth in the UK, as well as creating and nurturing client relationships.

Commenting on her appointment, Aliza Sweiry says:

“As someone who has risen through the ranks at Aquent, I firmly believe in setting a positive, practical and professional example for our staff.

“As Managing Director UK, I will be focussing my efforts on empowering our colleagues to excel and deliver exceptional results, matching UK based marketers and creatives with the exciting opportunities that our clients have to offer.”

Doug Kaplan, CEO of Aquent, adds:

“We are delighted to have appointed Aliza as Managing Director UK. She brings with her a wealth of experience and knowledge of Aquent and I am sure she will be a great success. I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Mike Berry for his hard work and dedication and wish him all the best in his retirement.”
