The Number One Digital Agency in the North, idhl has announced two new hires for its Web Division; welcoming to the Group Mandy Basra as their Technology Partnerships Manager and Andrew Loades as their Business Development Director. A new position for the Group, Mandy’s role as Technology Partnerships Manager will see her look to improve how idhl’s Web Division brands engage with partners to support business initiatives.
Joining the idhl Group from a Shopify Plus agency as Partnerships Manager, Mandy is well-placed to lead the way on partner relationships:
“By providing a single point of contact for our growing partners, I will be able to maximise new opportunities for the brands and drive new avenues to support the Web Division’s evolving proposition in the digital space. I’m excited to get started!”
Andrew’s appointment as Business Development Director for idhl’s latest acquisition, eCommerce agency Ampersand, demonstrates the Group’s dedication to driving growth across their brands.
With 13 years of experience under his belt, Andrew is well-versed in the intricacies of navigating new business:
“Throughout my career I have focused on driving sales, helping teams to attract, win and retain clients both nationally and globally. idhl has seen huge growth over a short period and I look forward to being part of their continued success, driving new areas of business to the Group.’
Dan Conboy, eCommerce Strategy Director at idhl, believes their appointments will help to further build and develop the overall proposition of the Web Division:
“Mandy has great existing experience of the tech-eco system and has already outlined compelling ideas to help us to improve our capabilities around partnerships. Combined with Andrew’s proven track record helping big-name brands like McCann scale at a phenomenal rate, our Web Division offering is stronger than ever.
"As the Group continues to grow, bringing onboard people like Mandy and Andrew can only help to further establish our position in the industry.”
