Silverchip expand team

Silverchip makes two new hires to support a period of significant growth for the technical web development agency based in The Sharp Project, Manchester. 

Marketing Manager, Kate Welch has joined the team from e-commerce specialist agency Blueleaf. As well as delivering a robust marketing strategy for the agency, starting with the upcoming Prolific North Live, Kate is responsible for building strong partner relationships within Manchester’s digital community.

Another new recruit is Sandi Bennett, formerly from Footasylum. Also from an e-commerce background, Sandi joins the team as Digital Designer and will bring her niche user experience design and campaign expertise to the role. As well as working with clients, Sandi is working with Kate to hone the style of the agency to reflect recent growth and ongoing agency ambitions.  

Between them, Sandi (right) and Kate (left) have worked with large-scale brands including: Nike,  UKFast, adidas, Sale Sharks, The North Face and BBC. 

Silverchip co-founder, Jamie McMullan, said of the new hires: 

It’s a very exciting time for Silverchip. Our agency grew significantly in 2016 and looking at our current list of clients, along with the significant projects that we have planned for delivery in 2017, it’s the right time to step up the agency. These new hires will have a significant impact on our business, especially as they’re starting by looking at our brand to ensure we’re accurately portraying our position within the market. 

We are also investing in our marketing heavily this year and will be exhibiting at Prolific North Live for the first time. It seems like the perfect opportunity to celebrate our growth and further integrate ourselves within the Northern digital community that we know and love. 

Established in 2008 by Liam Bateman and Jamie McMullan, Silverchip works with clients including: England Squash, William Hill, Aunt Bessie’s and Rehau among others.
