Leading Manchester-based digital marketing agency, Online Ventures Group, continues to expand with its latest staff additions.

Having recently taken up residency at Universal Square, the creative agency is showing no signs of slowing down; with a large amount of client wins in the past quarter fuelling the need for a recruitment drive, particularly in the agency’s development department.

The new additions and change in scenery allow for a more flexible working space and dynamic company structure, including the creation of three new Director positions.  

Sara Bryan has returned to OVG as Accounts Director, Simon Taylor has taken on the position of Creative Director and Olwen Shaw has joined the agency  as Communications Director.

Former colleague, Neil Walker has re-joined the business as Technical Director, having previously worked with the founders at their previous agency, Just Search.

With over 16 years’ experience in digital marketing and a current judge for the UK Search Awards, Neil has established himself as an influential figure on the SEO scene.

Since Walker’s departure in 2009 he has consulted with brands such as Minky, First Choice Holidays and Vita Student among many others; further enhancing his skill set working with PR agencies and in-house Marketing teams.

Speaking about joining OVG, Neil Walker said:

“Having worked directly with brands over the past few years, I wanted to expand my consultancy and bring my client base to OVG. This works out best for both parties as we can benefit from the company’s strengths as well as my own expertise.”

Speaking about the latest developments, Managing Director Justin Yates said:

“Having recently implemented a new company structure, designed to allow us to grow rapidly within the next few months, moving offices has been the logical next step.

“Our ever-expanding range of services and increasing staff headcount means that our requirements have changed since moving into our old office a little over two years ago.

“The new location will allow us to expand even further, improving accessibility and giving us the means to provide our clients with the best possible service.

“The new hires we have made, and the addition of Neil to the board of Directors, will ensure further success in the future.”
