Sonali Craddock is the new digital creative project manager and will co-ordinate the creative and technical teams. Hannah Knowles is joining in an IT support role, while Sean Kennedy will apply his marketing background to the telesales team.
Beyond Digital has clients including Jaguar Land Rover, Volvo and Frimley Park Hospital. It offers consultancy on areas such as media distribution, maintenance, project management and content design. Louise Richley, managing director of Beyond Digital, said: “After such a successful year we wanted to boost the operations in the North East, which has such a high reputation for skills within creative industries.
“I know all the resources to grow the business and continue Beyond Digital’s success are available in the North East and I have proved this with four excellent appointments.
“Alongside enhancing our sales team and project managers, we will be pushing ahead with our plans for the future to move into new sectors such as corporate and leisure.
