Buchanan will direct the combined efforts of the sales and marketing departments across the brand’s Manchester, London, and Lancaster sites. The CTI Digital group is predicted to reach a turnover of £8m in 2019, after its 2018 management buy-out and acquisition of Nublue.

He said: “We’re pleased to have Kirstie’s expertise and vision joining CTI Digital during a period of rapid growth. Her approach and values align with our culture, and her knowledge and creativity will be critical to the agency’s success over the next few years.”
Buchanan added: “I’m pleased to be joining an agency with so much energy for client growth, and the excellent service delivery and knowledge to back it up. CTI Digital has been a welcoming and exciting place to be and I’m thrilled for the exciting developments to come over the next few months.”
