By Evolved • 2 December 2019 • minutes reading time

We’re excited to announce four new faces have joined the Evolved Search team in the second half of 2019, with expansion across our technical, outreach, design, and PPC teams.

Left to right: Brian Naisbitt (Digital Graphic Designer), Louayy Haqqi (Head of Paid Marketing), Liam Copping (Senior Technical SEO Lead), and Steph Holmes (Digital PR & Outreach Executive).

In July we announced ambitious growth plans, aiming to grow revenue by 270% and create at least 45 additional jobs by August 2022, to reach a total headcount of 100 staff within five years.

As such, our recruitment is set to ramp up a notch in 2020, with a number of vacancies live ahead of the festive period (more on that at the end of this post!).

First, let’s find out a little more about our new Evolved Search team members, shall we?

Louayy Haqqi – Head of Paid Marketing

Louayy is a seasoned digital expert with over 12 years working across senior agency and in-house roles, most recently as Head of Digital at online finance broker, MYJAR.

He’s joined the Evolved Search team at an exciting and crucial time, as we grow our PPC offering and expand the team further over the coming months.

Louayy is AdWords and Analytics certified and has experience working on a range of accounts from SME to large multi-nationals, handling budgets in excess of £5million per annum, so is the perfect fit for our diverse PPC service.

Speaking of the recruitment of Louayy, Operations Director, Tom Etherington, said: “We are delighted to have Louayy joining our team in a key leadership role at a time when the company is looking to take our paid media offering to the next level.

“We are confident that his depth of experience in managing significant budgets, dealing with highly competitive industries, and developing services within digital agencies will be a huge boost to our team and the service we deliver to our clients”

Steph Holmes – Digital PR & Outreach Executive

Steph has a First-Class Honours degree in Journalism under her belt and brings that, along with experience across a number of sectors, to the brilliant Digital PR & Outreach team.

As well as freelance work with the BBC, Steph has worked in Marketing/PR roles in Recruitment and FMCG, and her diverse skill set is already a big benefit for our clients.

She’s also passionate about charity work and corporate social responsibility, so we look forward to her helping with our crusade to raise ongoing funds for the causes we care about!

Speaking of her new role, Steph said; “I wanted to join Evolved Search as it seemed like a fun and vibrant place to be. They have a great vision for the next few years and it seems like a really great time to be a part of such a knowledgeable and amazing team as they continue to grow.”

Brian Naisbitt – Digital Graphic Designer

As our demand for compelling, creative, interactive content continues to increase, we are thrilled to welcome Brian to the design team.

Brian has over 5 years of experience in the industry, along with a degree in Drawing & Image Making from the University of Central Lancashire. During his time at University, Brian won a UCLan Creative Focus award for one of his exhibition pieces.

Brian has worked in agency environments before, with clients in the Manufacturing, Technology, and Engineering sector including some large names in the region like NBS and The North East Automotive Alliance.

Liam Copping – Senior Technical SEO Lead

Liam joins the ever-growing technical team, bringing years of digital marketing and technical knowledge and experience gained both in-house and at local agencies. His senior expertise has seen him lead technical SEO accounts for a number of household names and now he’s bringing that to Evolved to help push our technical offering even further.

A Yorkshire native but an adopted Geordie, Liam stayed up North after graduating from Northumbria University. He has GAIQ and AdWords certifications and experience across both B2B and B2C sectors.

Tom Etherington added: “Bringing Liam into the technical team is further evidence of our commitment to investing in brilliant digital talent. He’s joining at a great time for not only the business but the service overall.

“We’ve won some brilliant contracts and awards recently and are on a positive, ambitious and exciting journey, so it’s great to have Liam join us and add even more knowledge and experience to our offering.”

Want to join us, too? We’re hiring.

That’s right, there’s still room for more.
