MEDIACO, the leading internet marketing agency, has strengthened its team with the appointment of Paul Sykes as business development manager.
Paul has a wealth of experience, previously holding similar positions at Avian, a top integrated design and digital agency in Scotland, and Chemistry (now Publicis Chemistry) one of the UK’s foremost independent direct and CRM marketing agencies.
During his seven years at Avian, he was particularly instrumental in the acquisition of appointments to the marketing rosters of both the Scottish Government and Scottish Parliament and also won a number of prestigious private sector clients.
At Chemistry, Paul can claim credit for bringing on board major clients such as Microsoft and Transport for London.
“We are delighted to have secured the services of Paul,” said David Mill, MD of MediaCo, which has been based in Dundee and Edinburgh since 1999 and has also been established in Singapore since 2009.
“The world of Internet Marketing is very vibrant at the moment, not least due to an increased focus on integrated services and quality content, which have always been our strengths.
“Paul’s arrival will help us to deliver results for a greater number of clients who wish to reap the benefits of optimised Internet Marketing strategies including Search, Social Media and Content Marketing.”
Paul entered the world of marketing and digital via an acting career which saw him perform for the RSC and Royal National Theatre after training at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
He said: “I am delighted to be joining MediaCo at this particular time, when there are a number of exciting challenges taking place, and I look forward to working with the MediaCo team to seek out and win new business across Scotland and the UK.”
