Seymour arrives following a 22-year stint at Turner Duckworth, where she was managing director and head of client services in London. During her time with the creative agency, she led teams to create visual identity systems, brand assets and artefacts for start-up, challenger and globally renowned brands.

As managing director of London, Seymour will drive client and business development growth, while building and inspiring multi-disciplinary teams to lead brand transformation efforts for global clients. Based in London, she will report to Jim Misener, the CEO of 50,000feet.

“The strength of our client relationships, coupled with Moira’s global design leadership, puts 50,000feet on the world stage for creativity,” said Misener. “Moira’s on-the-ground presence in London better enables us to serve global clients with the world’s best design talent to enable brand transformation that delivers impact.”

The appointment of Seymour and expansion in London further accelerates 50,000feet’s growth momentum – having expanded its integrated team by 30% in the last three years alone. As it looks to maintain that momentum, June 2023 saw 50,000feet receive an investment from Erie Street Growth Partners, which it will use to support the strategic expansion of the firm’s offerings, operational infrastructure and geographic footprint in response to increasing client demand for brand transformation on a global scale.
