Conchango, the business, technology and interactive media consultancy, has announced eight new appointments over the last month. All of the new recruits will be joining Conchango’s award winning Interactive Media department and many more new faces are expected to appear over the coming year as the department continues to win business from the likes of Associated Newspapers, Harrods and First Plus.

Matt Bagwell – formerly Creative Director of Syzygy – joins Conchango as Creative Director while Tom Hopkins formerly Managing Director of VCCP Digital has been appointed Head of Business Development for Interactive Media – Conchango’s group responsible for design, branding and user experience. These two design industry heavyweights have been hired to drive new and existing business for the Interactive Media team and help Conchango raise its profile as one of the top integrated design agencies.

Paul Dawson, Head of Interactive Media for Conchango says: “With Conchango revenues increasing by 50 percent last year, we’ve enjoyed a very successful and busy period. Forrester benchmarked our design skills in 2006 as the best in Europe against the likes of AKQA and Agency.com which positions us as the leading user and brand experience experts. The decision to expand the Interactive Media team was made in line with the increased workload from our new and existing clients in the digital space, plus the opening of a new Media and Publishing sector within the business. We’ve got big plans for the team in 2007 and the new additions will ensure that Conchango continues to grow in this sector and deliver innovative solutions to our clients.”
