DEPT® strengthens its sales team ahead of 2020 growth plans
DEPT® is gearing up for continued growth in the UK with the appointment Paul Thomas as Client Development Director and Engagement Manager James Shilton.
Thomas joins DEPT® with over 15 years’ experience driving business growth via acquisition, digital transformation, marketing and account development. With a passion for digital and a hybrid background involving technology, creative thinking, strategy and marketing, Thomas is perfectly poised for the integrated digital agency.
Prior to DEPT®, Thomas was Director of Business Development at Zone (part of Cognizant), and Head of Sales at Kagool. Thomas said: “It’s an exciting time to join DEPT®. Just three years in, the agency is a top UK agency and is expanding across the globe with unprecedented levels of growth. DEPT® is ambitious, with talented teams of specialists in all areas of emerging tech, ready to reinvent the digital industry. I’m looking forward to continuing to drive the agency forward with high-calibre opportunities.”
Thomas is a Sitecore MVP and has established relationships with DEPT®’s key technology partners, which makes him even more of an asset. Thomas will be overseeing the new business growth of DEPT®’s design and technology services in the UK, partnering with new brands and expanding the agency’s technology partnerships.
DEPT® also welcomes James Shilton from Kagool, who has joined DEPT® to grow its sales operations team to help fuel the agency’s new business aspirations. “
Joining DEPT® to develop a sales operations team is a welcomed opportunity. With its full service offering and impressive client roster, I look forward to optimising all of our experience to reach and engage businesses across the UK. On a personal level, I am looking forward to growing the team ahead of an exciting 2020 at Dept”, said Shilton.
After a strong year of growth, the agency isn’t showing signs of slowing down, with further expansion planned for 2020. The UK client roster includes Triumph, Formula E, O2 and Sony PlayStation.
