Digital director joins Forward Role

Award-winning specialist marketing recruiter Forward Role has expanded with the appointment of digital director Brian Johnson.

Brian joins from Michael Page where he has six years’ experience managing marketing teams; recruiting across multiple sectors and more recently specialising in the digital space, where he was tasked with establishing Michael Page Digital in the North and Midlands.

Prior to that he served as a captain in the British Army and played rugby professionally as a winger for Gloucester RUFC, England A and the Barbarians.

Managing director Steve Thompson said: “We’re delighted that Brian has chosen to join Forward Role. He had a number of offers to join more established businesses, but felt that the Forward Role brand was the best fit with his own ambitions and the Digital market.

"He will bring an unrivalled network and market knowledge where there is significant demand for talent, and complement our existing offering both in the digital market, but also across our marketing, creative and analytical divisions. Brian is an excellent fit for our business, and will be tasked with helping us deliver on our major growth plans in 2014 and beyond. We wish him all the best!” Brian said: “Forward Role have such a strong brand and reputation in the market particularly across the digital space that I knew it was something I wanted to be part of. The impact that they have had over the last couple of years with their expertise in digital, analytics and creative and the relationships that they have forged made it such an easy decision – I genuinely believe we will be the ‘go to’ agency for digital recruitment for all businesses who are looking to cement themselves in the North West digital landscape.”
