Seven new starters for Motionlab team

North West marketing agency, Motionlab has strengthened its team with the appointment of seven new starters following a period of substantial growth.

The agency, which is headquartered in Preston, has won a string of new clients since the start of the year and has bolstered its team to support this expansion.

Motionlab’s website development team will benefit from the appointment of junior developer Jordan Doyle, front-end developer Mike Booth, both from Lytham, and full stack developer Sebastian Ciocan who joins from Romania.

Motionlab’s account management team has been strengthened with the addition of Kam Abass from Manchester’s SMRS and Joe Jackson from Northern Monkey Media. The pair will be supporting existing clients including AO.com, Johnson Cleaners and FIT Show, as well as working with new clients Cuffe & Taylor, Sugarvine, The Grand Venue and GB Group.

Andrew Baillie joins as senior developer from ecommerce musical instrumental retailer, Venditan. Andrew will work within Motionlab’s software development team as it pushes to launch its bespoke management platform, Orvelo.

Orvelo is a real time dashboard that is aimed at marketing managers and provides a single view of marketing channel performance to build trends, analyse sales enquiries and track the performance of a business or franchise.

Completing the seven is Preston’s Barrie Heaton who joins Motionlab’s creative studio from Johnston Press. Barrie will provide offline creative support for retained clients such as Solidor, Furness College and Bowker Motor Group.

Speaking about the recruitment drive, Motionlab CEO Simon Iredale said: “It’s a really exciting time at Motionlab HQ. As well as a number of high profile regional and national account wins, we’re investing heavily in our own development initiatives. “As well as our Orvelo platform, we have a brand new venture due to launch in September which will provide an additional string to our bow. We’re delighted to welcome seven new faces to the team as we push forward with our proposition as one of the North’s leading agencies.”
