Rob Mathieson, co-founder and managing director of AYO Media is to oversee the agency’s new Manchester office, as the agency aims to drive its overall business growth strategy.
The second office will work alongside that of the online development agency’s Tyneside headquarters, and will initially have two members of staff based there, following a number of digital projects such as iMoney Group, HS Sports and The National BMX Centre, all based within the north west.
Rob Mathieson said: “This is a major milestone in our company’s ongoing growth and is hopefully the start of a very exciting chapter for the team at AYO Media.
“Manchester continues to thrive as the creative capital of the UK and it’s vital that we have a presence in this region if we want to meet our commercial objectives.
“We hope to have the site up and running by the New Year with a few new staff, which will not only allow us to better service our clients in Manchester but also provide a foundation to secure more business in the region.”
AYO Media is headed up by directors Rob Mathieson, Tony Olanipekun and Kevin Reece and currently has 13 employees.
