Operations director Andy Heaps is leaving Manchester agency Return on Digital, four months after sales director Dan Beckett departed for Hello Soda.

Heaps, the former Epiphany operations director and head of SEO at Latitude, joined Return in November 2016.

Beckett left in April to become business development director at Hello Soda after just five months at Return. He had joined from investment firm BGF, where he was responsible for sourcing acquisition targets. Prior to that he was business development director at Bureau van Dijk, where he spent eight years building the company’s sales capabilities and driving new business growth.

Guy Levine, founder and CEO of Return (above), told Prolific North: “This is a very positive time for us, with new business coming in and award wins too.

“There’s always going to be a certain turnover of staff and we’ll be making some new appointments in the coming weeks. I’m still on good terms with the staff who have gone and wish them well.”

Return was 28th (up from 33rd) in the Prolific North 2018 list of the top 50 digital agencies in the North.
