Derbyshire-based web development, creative and digital marketing agency, Purpose Media, has announced the addition of four new hires and the promotion of two team members as the business continues to grow in 2021.
The shake-up comes after a year of strong growth for the South Normanton agency, who have taken on a raft of new clients including Rivus Fleet Solutions and Bam Boom Cloud, as well as securing a new contract with the Chesterfield Digital High Street project. Following up from their recent hire of Dav Nash as Head of Digital, Purpose Media has further invested in video and account management.
Purpose Media swooped to acquire the services of Alistair Bullock to bolster their team. Alistair has joined as a videographer and photographer for the agency, having previously worked for himself and on prominent motoring channels Car Throttle and WTF1. In addition to his editing and production skills, Alistair also brings experience in drone photography, which is a high-in-demand service.
Purpose Media has also grown its account management team to improve the level of service to its existing clients on a day-to-day basis. Barney Curzon-Jones has joined as an Account Manager and brings sales, marketing and business development experience within the construction industry.
Becky Sandars and Josh Wallis have joined as Account Executives to support the wider team with the day-to-day interactions with clients. Becky recently graduated from Sheffield Hallam University with a degree in Marketing, Communications and Advertising. She has 2 years’ experience as a Marketing Assistant in the asset management sector. Josh graduated from Nottingham Trent University with a degree in Marketing and Branding, and has worked within marketing, recruitment and events.
There have also been two internal promotions at Purpose Media. Matthew Bonser has stepped up from Senior Account Manager to Account Director, and his role will be focussed on onboarding clients and ensuring the account management team is working effectively across all of Purpose Media’s client base.
Emma Blaken has moved from her Account Manager role to become Head of Marketing for Purpose Media. Emma now looks after the marketing and growth of Purpose Media, building awareness by developing and executing marketing strategies for the agency.
Matt Wheatcroft, Managing Director at Purpose Media, said: “I’m delighted to welcome five new members to the team in the past month, and it’s brilliant to see Matthew and Emma deservedly being promoted within.
“We’re in a busy period of growth and we are recruiting to ensure we can deliver the best level of service possible to our new and existing clients.”
