Feed, one of the world’s fastest growing independent digital marketing agencies, is pleased to announce the promotion of James Hill as their first General Manager, Manchester. James joined Feed as a designer in 2008, and became the General Manager of their Berlin office in 2015. He will now run Feed’s Manchester office to assist in driving the agency’s UK growth strategy beyond their London HQ, working alongside Global CEO Matt Lynch.
With 200 staff, an annual turnover of £13m and global clients including eBay, Virgin, PayPal and Gumtree, Feed is expecting to open a further office later this year, in addition to those already in London, Berlin and San Francisco.
Feed’s Global CEO, Matt Lynch, said: “James is a bright, driven and down to earth talent that can unite a team behind a vision or a brand. Feed plans to double the size of our Manchester office to forty people over the next twelve months. Manchester will be Feed’s digital powerhouse of the North and James and his team will champion our unique tech enabled proposition.”
“Following my leadership roles at Feed in London and Berlin, I’m very excited to be managing our office in the Northern Quarter of Manchester. There is an incredible opportunity here to bring Feed’s values and quality of work to the North. I am looking to grow our twenty-strong team with talent from the surrounding area, offering employment opportunities and training that are normally associated with the London bubble. Being from the North East originally, I’m very proud to be here in Manchester and look forward to what the future will bring for the business and the community.” James Hill, General Manager Manchester
