Tech studio announces senior appointment

A creative technology studio based in the South West has announced a new head of technology.

James Hobbs brings a wealth of experience from his time at Dyson and Great State.

He has joined Aer Studios which has also announced a new trio of practice leads, including Max Waring (Front End), Jon Chard (Back End), and Aaron Bushell (DevOps).

The appointment comes shortly after the addition of Lucy Rees as head of people and culture.

The strategic hires mark a significant step in Aer Studios’ growth, as well as its commitment to excellence and innovation in the creative technology sector.

Last year it secured a coveted place on the BBC Digital Design Roster.

Notable career achievements for Hobbs include a six-year period at Dyson, where he successfully led the global digital technical team from its launch to over twenty members.

At Great State, Hobbs was instrumental in driving the company’s technology strategy, leading an engineering team delivering multi-award-winning work.

“James’ appointment comes at a time when Aer Studios is gearing up for growth,” said Tom Harber managing director at Aer Studios.

“His experience and values fit perfectly with our ambitions. With James on board, we’re excited to amplify our efforts and lead the charge in transforming the tech industry into a beacon of sustainability for the future.”

“I’m delighted to have joined Aer Studios,” said James. “It was immediately clear from my initial conversations with Lucy and Tom that Aer Studios have a deep focus on people and planet, both of which are really important to me, alongside delivering outstanding work for clients.”
