Manchester-based digital product studio Code Computerlove has announced Rob Jones as joint Managing Director, alongside other senior-level promotions, as Louis Georgiou takes a more active role at parent company MediaCom North and focuses on Code’s new consultancy services.
Rob, who has been with the agency for more than 13 years, was previously Client Services Director. He will now oversee the delivery of Code’s core products and services, while Louis focuses on the agency’s burgeoning Agile coaching and organisational design and transformation division. Louis will also be nurturing group-wide client relationships at MediaCom North where he forms part of their leadership team.
In the restructure, Gemma Handley has also been promoted to Commercial Director, while Claire Kerley has moved up to Delivery Director.
With 75 staff, Code Computerlove ranks as one of the leading digital product studios in the UK specialising in design, technology, product delivery, business strategy and coaching. Clients include Hillarys, BBC, JCT-600, AO.com, Sky Gaming and Manchester Airport. It was founded in 1999 by current CEO Tony Foggett, Louis Georgiou and Wini Tse, and became part of the Mediacom North group of businesses in 2016.
Louis Georgiou, Co-managing Director, said: “The role of our studio has evolved in recent years to meet the fast-changing needs of client partners. Not only do ambitious businesses come to us for the design and engineering of better digital experiences, but increasingly for coaching and consultancy where we support tech leaders with organisational change, agile transformation processes and helping them to create a culture that optimises effectiveness.
“Rob is highly experienced in helping clients to achieve their digital ambitions and has been an invaluable member of the senior leadership team engendering our continued growth. It will be a pleasure to continue to work alongside him in his new role.
“While 2020 was challenging for all, it has put our services front and centre for many businesses looking to accelerate the value we can achieve from their digital experiences and to operate with agility and speed. We’re in a great position to drive growth for Code this year and to continue to build on the successful changes we’ve implemented as a result of the pandemic.
“Our success has always been through our brilliant people and the exceptional talent we have within the studio, and I’m delighted to announce these promotions.”
Rob added: “To have the opportunity to work alongside Louis to lead Code into its next phase of growth is incredibly exciting and I look forward to delivering a refreshed focus on the development and delivery of digital products supported by such an exceptional team.
“We have the capability and vision to make real our ambition to be the partner of choice for digital products and services businesses, that will enhance our reputation as one of the best, and most fun, digital product studios to work with in the UK.”
