“This is a challenging time for businesses, but an exciting phase for digital communications and marketing which is coming to the fore as a way to help businesses differentiate and recover post-lockdown,” he said.

“Organisations all over the world are reviewing and refining their digital strategies as they look to find new ways to reach, engage with and sell to customers. I’m looking forward to working with such a great portfolio of national and international brands and local businesses, and working with the team to help get our clients in the best position possible to face the future head on.”

With 18 years in the industry, Maybury will focus on content marketing, digital PR and SEO, lead generation and impact measurement.

“We have bounced back from lockdown with a huge focus on helping our clients understand what’s changed,” said founder, Kari Owers.

“From insights that show them the consumer trends to fresh strategies that pivot their business to new audiences, and our new digital lead is part of that solution for clients.”
