International digital marketing agency, Stickyeyes, has further strengthened its executive management team by appointing former PwC Corporate Finance Director, Tom Howard, to the role of Chief Financial Officer.

In his new role, Howard, who brings over 20 years' experience of working with both fast growing private businesses and large blue chip organisations, will provide strategic business insight and direction to the senior management team and support the agency's ambitious growth strategy.

The recruitment of Howard represents a major milestone for Stickyeyes, as his appointment marks the 100th hire for the agency which was founded by CEO, Craig Chalmers, in 1996. The business, which was recently shortlisted for seven UK Search Awards, has more than doubled in size, revenue and employee headcount since 2008 and is forecasting further significant growth this financial year.

Craig Chalmers, CEO, says – “Tom’s appointment comes at a time when our business is growing faster than ever, and his experience of working successfully with fast growing businesses will prove valuable to the senior team and wider business. We are on track to deliver yet another year of fantastic growth, and this appointment further demonstrates our agency’s commitment to attracting world-class talent from a diverse range of backgrounds.”

The Leeds based agency, which was ranked as one of the top 100 fastest growing companies in the UK by the Sunday Times in 2011, opened its London office earlier this year to support its expanding client base, and plans for further expansion across the UK and internationally.

As part of the agency’s continued efforts to further develop its wider digital services, Heather Healy has also been promoted to the role of Creative Communications Director, and will oversee the strategic development of the agency’s creative offering, which includes its influencer engagement, social media, content and PR services.
