Magma Digital has appointed Matt Cockayne as technical lead. Matt comes to Magma Digital with a wealth of experience and in his last role was the managing/technical director at the Manchester based company Zucchi Ltd.

In his career so far, Matt has worked in a variety of organisations where he has been able to influence the commercial, technical and project management aspects of their business. Prior to working at Zucchi Ltd, Matt occupied roles as senior and lead developer at CTI Digital and Wilson Cooke.

As well as having first class skills in software development, Matt brings substantial experience of leading teams and cultivating highly efficient development environments. His skills and expertise will be a great addition to Magma Digital's production processes. Joining the senior management team, Matt will help to oversee the robust handover from new business enquiries into technical delivery, and on to project completion.

Matt said “Magma Digital are very well known in the software development community, especially for their work with the PHPNW Conference. Therefore, it was an obvious choice to come here and I aim to enhance the company’s reputation for technical distinction. Magma Digital has a focused forward thinking approach, which is an attractive quality for any prospective employee.” Jeremy Coates, CEO, said “Matt’s knowledge and skills, in both software development and the commercial aspects of running an agency, will be a significant boost to the Magma Digital team as a whole. Matt will compliment the attributes of myself and the directors, Barry and Priscilla, as we look to lead the company into a new chapter in the new year.”
