Lake District based digital agency Digitaloft launches London office & makes three strategic hires to support recent growth

Digitaloft is delighted to announce its recent expansion to London and launch of the agency’s hub in Farringdon after a successful 2019. 

The Lake District based search marketing agency has gone from strength to strength in recent years since being founded by James Brockbank in 2013.

James comments: “2019 was a great year for us; we’ve begun working even more exciting clients and once again won a number of prestigious industry awards for our campaigns. Because of this growth, we’ve also made three new hires to grow our team and skill set.”

“We’re delighted to be able to do this in London and have a second base there, with one of our Northern team having moved down to the city to support the launch. It makes sense with our client roster to have a presence in the capital to allow for more face-to-face meetings, and London is just great for digital PR in terms of networking, industry events and recruitment.”

Digitaloft’s new Farringdon office, led by Head of Digital PR, Olivia Smith, also welcomes Fran Griffin as Digital PR Manager, and Mike Hawkes as Content Marketing Manager into two new positions, working across clients including Compare the Market, StubHub, Mazuma, Cosmetify and more.   

Fran brings to the team seven years of agency experience, which includes five years traditional PR side. She will be responsible for leading digital PR campaigns and landing top-tier press coverage for clients. Mike has joined Digitaloft, having previously worked in content at iProspect and Koozai, and will oversee the content marketing strategy for the agency’s clients.

Olivia comments: “It’s great to have two new fresh perspectives and skill sets in the team. Combining our unique perspectives will enable us to be even more creative and stronger in our digital PR and content approach for our clients, and we’re looking forward to 2020 in London.”

The third new hire is Andy Frobisher, who joins the agency’s Northern team as Campaign Manager from Fat Media. With over five years of agency experience, Andy will be heading up the campaigns and working closely with clients from ideation to deliverables to drive success.

James concluded: “We enter 2020 with an outstanding team of experienced and passionate individuals and are ready to enter our next stage of growth. Welcoming Andy, Fran and Mike to the team and opening up our London was crucial for us to keep up with the new client wins we saw at the back end of last year. 2020 is set to be an exciting time for the agency, and we still have lots more planned as part of our expansion, so watch this space!”

Digitaloft has recently won in the UK Search Awards 2019 with a silver award for Best Small SEO Agency, and won multiple awards for its campaigns at the Northern Marketing Awards in November, including Best Search Marketing Campaign for their work with Veygo and Best Digital Marketing Campaign for work with The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance.
