AudienceStore expands to new offices in Manchester
To further its capacity and presence in the market, programmatic media specialists, AudienceStore, have opened a new office in Manchester to better serve and support its clients’ further north of its head office, based in Soho, London.
The domestically owned AudienceStore have created a number of new jobs in Manchester by opening these new offices, including the newly hired Regional Sales Director, Alex Kirkley, who has joined the business from Conversant and will spearhead the new team in Manchester.
This expansion comes at a time when there is record investment in fast-growing UK technology businesses, with a record £5.5bn in foreign investment recorded in the first seven months of this year, according to research from the government’s digital economy council.
Danny Haynes, Operations Director at AudienceStore commented, “As a marketing technology business, we have the benefit of being able to set up almost anywhere in the UK. Our clients however, from manufacturers to luxury travel providers, do not.
“Manchester is a vibrant city with huge economic opportunity. Recent studies have suggested it will lead the way for economic growth in the UK, post-Brexit, thanks to its links to the Northern Powerhouse Initiative, transport connections, digital infrastructure and respected universities. We, as AudienceStore, want to ensure that our clients and our own business is part of that growth. We’re very pleased to have Alex on board to help us drive this forward.”
AudienceStore’s success has largely been a result of its combination of its expert staff and technology to create highly effective marketing strategies that are driven by data and audience insight, utilising eye-catching creative to gain results.
Alex Kirkley, Regional Sales Director at AudienceStore added, “This is an exciting time for the business and myself in my new role. AudienceStore is in a somewhat unique space as an agnostic, independently owned marketing technology business. Our ability to bring together the best of martech and combine this with data insights and our talented team is something you just can’t find anywhere else. I’m very much looking forward to getting started”.
