David Beswick, former operations director at CTI Digital, has been promoted to the role of managing director. He will oversee all aspects of the agency in both Manchester and London, while founder and chief executive, Nick Rhind, will focus on its partners and acquisitions.
Rhind said of the new appointment: “David has been with the agency over the past five years, a period of rapid growth. He has been instrumental in taking leadership of the senior team, supporting me in developing and expanding our processes and culture across offices, which is a challenge for any business. This new role is a natural evolution for CTI Digital, as we become a truly global agency. The managing director appointment will give me the opportunity to really focus on the future development of the business and to maximise on our true potential.”
Discussing his appointment, Beswick said: “We’re expanding quickly and on track to break £5m turnover. This appointment allows me to really drive the business day to day while giving Nick the time to fully concentrate on positioning the business with our clients and identifying acquisitions to make over the coming years. With the backing of Paperhat Group, who bought a majority stake in CTI Digital over a year ago, we’re set to deliver outstanding business performance for clients in an incredibly dynamic market. There is no other agency set up with the technical expertise we have in Magento and Drupal. We deliver to consistently high standards with these technologies, setting us apart from others in our industry”.
CTI Digital, part of the Paperhat Group, is a full service digital agency with offices in Manchester and London. Established in 2003, it employs a team of over 80 staff servicing a client roster which includes the British Council, Great Ormond Street Hospital, McGraw Hill Education and the Greater London Authority.
