Full service, creative digital design agency Xigen has appointed three new directors as the company looks to grow through internal expansion and acquisitions .

All three appointments are promotions from within the agency and will join founder and managing director, Mark Fitzsimmons, and studio director, James Pruden, on the Xigen board.

Leo Matthews has been promoted from project manager to director, tasked with expanding Xigen’s growth among small and medium sized businesses and help ecommerce clients increase conversion rates and revenue.

Luke Campbell moves from senior project manager to director. He will be responsible for delivering growth within the corporate side of the business, working with new clients as they join the agency.

Finally, the agency has promoted Michelle Darrington from financial controller to finance director with the brief to improve cashflow and profitability, as well as ensure the wellbeing of the staff as the company’s ‘people officer’.

Fitzsimmons said : “After a long period of steady organic growth and picking up recent work for big brands such as Unicef, Audi, Dunelm Mill, History Channel and Capita, it’s time for the business to take a step up and supercharge its growth.”

Pruden added: “Leo, Luke and Michelle have played a vital role in our success to date, so it was an easy decision to promote them to the management team to help us take the business to the next level. By joining the board they will also ensure we continue to deliver high quality client work, quickly and cost effectively while we expand.”
