First Internet eyes national expansion with new hire

"Our heritage is very much in the northwest but over the last 10 months we have started working with clients much further afield and this is something were keen to build on"
Julaine Speight

Andrew, 31, joins the Hale digital marketing agency following over 12 years in B2B and B2C business development roles, as an in-house commercial lead and in consultative roles.

At First Internet, his aim is to build on the success the award-winning outfit has enjoyed over the last few months: the 15-strong team has combined existing client growth and awards with new client wins across a number of sectors including tech, health and safety and chemical and beauty.

Andrew will be reporting to the board of directors including Julaine Speight, who comments: “Our heritage is very much in the northwest but over the last 10 months we have started working with clients much further afield and this is something we’re keen to build on. Andrew has strong contacts across the UK as well as a proven track record in building existing businesses and start-ups, so he will play a very central role in our expansion.”

Says Andrew: “It’s an exciting time for digital: public online behaviour continues to evolve and businesses need to embrace this, while adapting their everyday systems and marketing output to perform remotely. I’m really looking forward to engaging with First Internet’s existing portfolio of clients and building new relationships that will build on the agency’s hugely successful organic growth.”

First Internet is an award-winning full-service digital marketing agency - services include website design and development, UX design, SEO, social media management and content marketing. Clients include PZ Cussons, Peak ai, Citation, Metro Rod, Sew Direct and more.
