Epiphany Heaps on the pressure!

The UK's fastest-growing search marketing agency Epiphany Solutions has announced the appointment of Andy Heaps as Director of Search – Andy joins from rival Latitude Group and is the second major switch after MD Rob Shaw joined last year.

Previously Head of SEO for the Latitude Group and responsible for delivering campaigns such as Tesco Mobile and Swinton Insurance, Andy will head up all search production teams covering PPC, SEO and Conversion Rate Optimisation. Recently named as one of the most influential people in search marketing, Andy brings with him a vast array of experience, knowledge and talent.

Managing Director Rob Shaw commented on the appointment: “Andy is well respected both for his technical knowledge, his vision and leadership; he is a valuable addition to the Epiphany team.

“2009 was a great year for Epiphany and bringing Andy onboard will ensure the agency continues to push the boundaries of Search Marketing in 2010.”

The appointment of Heaps comes on the back of unparalleled growth for Epiphany in 2009 beginning with the appointment of Shaw as MD and followed by a string of new business wins including Ventura, The British Medical Association and Savills as well as several new appointments across all areas of the business.

Talking about his new role Andy Heaps commented: “I’m delighted to be joining a dynamic agency that has demonstrated such success and growth. I’ve been aware of Epiphany for a number of years now and their prominence in the industry is increasing at a phenomenal rate.
“I’m looking forward to working with them on their growth strategy as well as bringing new and innovative ideas to market. They have a large and talented production team that has delivered results consistently for their clients and I'm relishing the opportunity to help drive strategy and innovation to help cement their position as market leaders.”

As well as managing SEO and PPC teams Heaps will oversee the expansion of the company’s Web Converter service – Epiphany is one of only a handful of companies to be awarded Google Conversion Professional (GCP) accreditation.

Talking about the year ahead, Shaw added: “We spent 2009 focussing on our core strengths, bringing the right staff on board and securing some great clients. We are in a fantastic position to capitalise on this in 2010 --the company has a clear vision of where it intends to go and talented individuals like Andy will ensure that we get there quickly.”
