We’ve promoted our former Digital Account Director, Harry May-Bedell to Head of Brand Communications and James Wheatley, former Head of Technical and Scoping, to Head of UX.
The promotions follow the tightening of focus around our three core disciplines; content, UX and acquisition.
Since joining Brass in 2008, Harry has gained extensive digital marketing experience, leading projects for brands such as First Direct and GSK. The promotion sees Harry’s role shift to leading on building Brass’ profile and marketing, as well as driving growth alongside the business development team.
Brass is in a period of accelerated change with a renewed sense of energy. We have lots of ambitious and exciting plans and I think we all have the right talent and experience to pull it off. The collaborative approach at Brass mean we are always learning from each other and growing as a team.
James joined Brass in 1999 as a web designer and coder, before overseeing the delivery of projects across multiple channels such as Ribena and Yorkshire Water. As Head of UX, James leads a user-centric agile approach to delivering feature rich applications on both mobile and web. He remains very hands on, recently developing a five star rated banking app for a financial client.
User Experience is a really exciting area at the moment, the mobile revolution has driven it to the top of the agenda. Omni channel approaches are vital and this requires a deep collaborative relationship with the client. Brass is a really positive and supporting work environment full of fun and friendly people that love what they do.
Delighted for Harry and Jim, both will add real value to our clients and our business, the promotions are testimony to their respective talents and contributions.
