Ex-Screen Rant Content Director joins Rise at Seven


Ben Kendrick, the former Content Director at film news website Screen Rant, has joined search-first consultancy Rise at Seven as VP of Content.

Having spent 13 years at the publisher, he will operate from New York as Rise at Seven launches to the USA, responsible for driving growth through content marketing and search-first PR work.

Kendrick joins the leadership team at Rise at Seven Group, which employs more than 100 and has offices in London, Manchester, Sheffield, and New York. In the US he will work alongside CEO and Co-founder Carrie Rose, and PR Director Will Hobson.

Rise at Seven has recently won a number of clients in the US including Boohoo Group, Hubspot, The Game Day, and more.

Commenting on his appointment, Ben Kendrick said: “I’ve been following Rise at Seven’s meteoric rise (and creative campaigns) for the past two years. As a journalist who receives hundreds of emails from agencies and publicists everyday, Rise at Seven content always stood out.

“Great content always wins on Google, so that content and the angle that is highlighted needs to be as good as the concept itself. I look forward to helping the team take that content to the next level”.

Carrie Rose added: “We have launched into New York with a bang, hiring one of the best editors and content directors I know in the whole of the states to be the first senior hire of Rise at Seven New York. I have known Ben for several years now, and to see him grow some of the US’s biggest entertainment publishers to millions of visitors every single day through high quality, relevant and reactive content.

“Ben’s many years in journalism and building many of the world’s biggest movie and entertainment news sites brings a huge amount of value to Rise at Seven’s search-first creative offering and growth plans and will also help give us access to the huge amount of talent within New York to help propel the agency globally.”
