Jude Turner has joined Manchester's Purple Riot as Partner and Head of Digital.

Turner has previously held roles at ITG Digital, Magnitude and Agency TK, before setting up digital consultancy Thursday3.

She said: “I’m delighted to join Purple Riot. The client portfolio includes hospitality, retail, leisure and fashion brands and it’s very exciting to be part of a full service agency working across multiple sectors.”

The integrated creative marketing agency has also moved from its NQ base into new offices on Albert Square.

More than £100k of new business has been secured in recent weeks, with client wins including fashion brand Two For Joy, Federal Café & Bar and music and arts events venue The Wonder Inn.

MD Nikki Kitchen said: “It has been a great first quarter for 2017 and Jude is a fantastic addition to the team. We are already known for our marketing, events and PR expertise but now we have the capacity to really develop the digital side of the business to meet with client demands.”

Kitchen launched the agency in the Spring of 2012 and its client list includes Manchester Arndale, The Mall Group, Local Care Force, The Blue Pig Bar and Old Granada Studios. The company is also working on a new brand and website, in order to better communicate its range of services.
