We are excited to announce the expansion of DQ&A’s operations to the North of England with a new office in Manchester and the appointment of Rob Smith as Managing Consultant.
With over 12 years of experience in digital, Rob is a Google Marketing Platform expert, having previously developed the programmatic division of the Dentsu Aegis Network, Amnet. During his career, he has worked with leading brands including Thomas Cook, Holland & Barratt, and N Brown Group.
We are thrilled to have him join our team and bring his invaluable industry knowledge and consultancy skills to DQ&A. As part of his role, Rob will drive the solutions side of the business and continue to help our clients improve their digital marketing strategies.
“The digital advertising marketplace is changing rapidly, both advertisers and agencies now require a more consultative approach from their partners as they take a more responsible, controlled approach to data and media operations. I am looking forward to working closely with the DQ&A team, and supporting the businesses growth in the new region,” explains Rob.
The City of Manchester has been selected as the location for the new DQ&A office because of the opportunity it holds to neighbour with a range of technology giants and startups in the area. The city is also well known for its abundance of rising talent from its strong university graduates, who DQ&A believes are the future of the digital industry.
James Sleaford, Managing Director UK & Ireland at DQ&A comments on the expansion, “Digital innovation is at the heart of what we do. We have technology and consultancy services that cross programmatic, search and analytics and with an ambitious plan for growth, we believe that the North of England will bring further opportunities for us to interact with some of the best global talent that can help us deliver success. I am thrilled that Rob has joined us a Managing Consultant. Not only will Rob be a crucial member of establishing our presence in the North of England and recruiting the best talent, but he’ll also be driving forward the businesses service offerings to keep DQ&A at the forefront of the digital advertising industry.”
