Lab Targets Major Agency Growth With New Senior Business Development Hire
Lab hires highly experienced commercial director as consulting partner to drive exponential growth via Sitecore, Magento, and digital marketing services.
Within this role, Morgan will work on strategic business development, seeking out brands wanting to deliver personalised experiences online to their customers, and brands looking to enter the world of ecommerce, or improve their existing ecommerce operations, via either the Sitecore or Magento web platforms.
“Lab is on the pulse of what customers need and the future of digital as it relates to personalisation. They understand that brands that focus on building close relationships with their consumers through a personal touch, turning them into loyal customers for life, will flourish, whereas those that do not will quickly be left behind,” commented Morgan. “This approach, as well as their creative talent and solid tech background, means they are making waves in the digital industry in the UK. I am absolutely delighted to be joining Lab and being an integral part of their remarkable growth journey.”
Morgan comes to Lab from DMR, a mobile agency he formed and sold in 2013 providing mobile digital consultancy to brands in the financial, entertainment, sports and luxury goods sectors that were struggling to monetise mobile-based applications. Prior to this, Morgan has held board roles at Bespoken, Boat International Group, Transad International PLC and has helped many media businesses raise private equity through Henderson Global Investors, August and many others.
Jonny Tooze, managing director, Lab, said, “Giles has been working for and running fast-track media, data and digital businesses for over 20 years, with over 8 years at board level. He has a proven track record of delivering sales and profit for the companies he has worked for or built up from scratch. With extensive contacts in the travel, luxury, sports and finance sectors, he is the ideal person to help Lab in our next stage of growth and on our journey to becoming one of the top 20 digital agencies in the UK. I am very happy to welcome him on-board.”
