Welcome to Adam Aspland and Carla Holcombe: Newest Members of the Think Tank
We’re really pleased to welcome two new team members so far in 2012, and they wanted to introduce themselves!
“Bonj, as they say in Spain”
My name’s Adam, I joined SiteVisibility in the Brighton office in March 2012 after two and half years working for an agency in London. It’s a very different atmosphere in terms of places, although the working environment, friendly staff and metrics are all the same! I am looking forward to working within a fully integrated marketing agency in the heart of Brighton, working on new clients, different and same verticals, more channels than ever before.
So, the last couple of years I worked for another marketing agency in London as an account manager learning and honing my skills across a variety of paid and performance channels, before that working for Flight Centre as a leisure and business international travel consultant. I am qualified by the Chartered Institute of Marketing and Google. My new role here at SiteVisibility is Paid Search and Display Advertising Manager, although I’m sure this is not definitive! I will work on all aspects of paid and performance marketing including Google, Bing, Yahoo, display marketing through agencies and DSPs through to affiliate programmes.
Before this I worked for many different travel companies in Europe, living and working in Val D’Isere, Bodrum, Lemnos to name but a few. I have spent many years travelling the globe including South East Asia, Indonesia, and Australia (who hasn’t these days)!
Outside of work, I enjoy watersports (windsurfing, water-skiing and wakeboarding), football, golf, and I’m currently training for the Great North Run in September – should you see me please send me words of encouragement and not abuse! I accept all forms of money for sponsorship!
My name’s Carla and I joined Site Visibility in April as a Digital Marketing Manager – and what a week to start! After briefly visiting the office for my induction, I had a great couple of days at BrightonSEO. I’ve attended all the previous BrightonSEO conferences but this was extra special as I was proud to be part of the talented Site Visibility team.
For the last five years, I worked for an online marketing agency, managing a wide range of successful campaigns. However, it’s not been all work and no play. I have indulged in my passion for travel and the outdoors; a highlight being hiking the Inca Trail and reaching Machu Piccha for sunrise. In addition to my love of travel, I am known to be a self-confessed DIY nut and a lover of trying new extreme sports, my favourite motto being ‘you have to try everything once’!
The SiteVis team is happy to have these digital experts join us in the Think Tank! You’ll be hearing from them both on the blog, so stay tuned for their upcoming posts!
