Huddersfield web design agency, Beanie Media, are rounding up a successful year and moving into 2024 with further growth ambitions after hiring new General Manager, Amanda Gledhill.
Founded in 2018, by Melissa Cooper at the tender age of 18, Beanie Media has increased profits year on year and is now a team of 6 including Front End Web Developer Reece Trickett, Full Stack Web Developer, James Esteban, Operations Manager, Helen Lyttle, Marketing Assistant, Elizabeth Smith and General Manager, Amanda Gledhill.
Amanda has a background in corporate sales and marketing roles and has a wealth of e-commerce experience, having launched and run an award-winning children’s wear business. She has joined Beanie Media from Spafield Properties where she was working as a Marketing Manager for the last five years. This is the third time that Melissa and Amanda have worked together in an agency environment.
Managing Director Melissa says of the hire:
“Things have changed a lot since I founded Beanie Media, 5 years ago. As we’ve grown, so has our client base, which has shown a clear need for support at the top level of our business and therefore the need for a General Manager position. I’m thrilled that Amanda has joined our team, and having worked in agencies with Amanda previously, I know how talented, reliable and trustworthy she is. With our eyes on a £500K turnover for 23-24, I can’t wait to see what we achieve with her on board.”
“It is an exciting time to be joining the Beanie Media team and I am looking forward to working with Melissa again. My role will focus on looking after existing client relationships and supporting Melissa on her ambitious growth plans in 2024.
I have a personal interest in photography and video, and I am also looking forward to honing and developing my skills in this area.”
