Digitonic appoints Operations Director ahead of ambitious 12-month growth period
Glasgow based smart mobile marketing agency, Digitonic, has announced the appointment of a new Operations Director – Raymond McGovern – to bolster the company’s senior team through an ambitious period of growth.
The newly-created role will task Raymond with developing a high-level operations strategy for the business as it looks to build on a very successful 2019.
Previously holding positions at Scottish Development International and Scottish Enterprise, Raymond brings with him 20 years’ experience in helping to deliver significant growth for Scottish and UK businesses on a global scale. An entrepreneurial and engaging leader, Raymond has a proven track record in shaping profitable relationships with commercial audiences.
Digitonic’s continued growth points to a number of factors, from new customer acquisition in the USA and Canada to substantial expansion within the financial services sector. The business has also identified and capitalised on the potential of emerging, high-growth global markets such as India.
Success can also be attributed to the commercialisation of Digitonic’s innovative, proprietary technology - including Yapper, its conversational marketing tool and mDoc, a mobile messaging platform that delivers significant savings across print and delivery ecosystems. 2020 will see the launch of further products, again reinforcing the company’s reputation for innovation and creativity. Digitonic also considerably boosted its workforce in 2019, growing from 16 to 26 team members based in its Glasgow HQ, alongside new offices in London, New York and India.
Commenting on his appointment, Raymond said: “This is a really exciting time for the business. I’ve already made strong inroads with the team and can see that we have brilliant platforms from which to drive fantastic results for Digitonic. I am very much looking forward to what I’m sure will be an exciting 2020.
Grant Fraser, Digitonic CEO, commented: “Raymond is an exceptionally strong communicator – he understands how to support teams in meeting performance outcomes in parallel with motivating colleagues to be their best. His experience of working and living in North America for nearly a decade will be of great benefit to the company’s international growth plans. We’re thrilled that he has come on board at a particularly important time for the business and feel confident that he will help us to meet and exceed all goals for 2020 and beyond.”
