Media agency recruits new head of digital

Derbyshire-based web development, creative and digital marketing agency Purpose Media has announced the addition of Dav Nash as its new head of digital to drive the team’s strategy and output across SEO, PPC, social, content and PR.

Nash joins after a year of strong growth for Purpose Media, having recently secured a raft of new clients including Rivus Fleet Solutions and Bam Boom Cloud.

Purpose Media also secured a contract to help local businesses move online and grow their sales and presence as part of the Chesterfield Digital High Street project.

Nash joins from Leicester-based digital agency Digital Ethos and brings a wealth of experience from leading a team of SEO experts. An SEO specialist, he also has senior experience with Loughborough brand agency Champions UK.

He said: “Although it is always sad to leave behind an excellent team, I am really excited to be stepping into the Head of Digital role and look forward to developing and growing the Digital department. I have great plans for the future of Digital Marketing at PM, so watch this space.”

Matt Wheatcroft, managing director at Purpose Media, added: “We are delighted to bring Dav on board to develop the strategy for our growing digital team, as we continue to support new and existing clients. Dav is an excellent leader and in his short time at Purpose Media, he’s already had a positive impact.”
