GRM Digital, a renowned web development and digital marketing agency headquartered in Leeds and operating internationally, has appointed an accomplished senior business development manager to fortify its expanding team.
Paul Yates brings with him an extensive background of over two decades in the industry. In 2004, he co-founded his agency, Just Search, alongside his brother Justin, transforming it from a nascent venture into a thriving enterprise with a remarkable turnover of £5.5 million within just four years. Following this, Yates ascended to the position of CEO at Online Ventures Group, a technical web design and SEO agency based in Manchester. He further ventured into the realm of agency ownership by establishing Huddled Media in 2017, subsequently transitioning into a consulting role.
Fueled by his enthusiasm for technical sales, Yates embraced a role at FastDox, until GRM recognized his expertise and offered him the opportunity to spearhead their new business team.
Yates’ induction into GRM Digital comes in the form of a newly crafted role, aligning with the company’s zealous pursuit of growth.
GRM Digital, founded in 2009 by Nej Gakenyi, has achieved a remarkable surge of over 100% growth in the last biennium. Presently, the agency boasts offices in key locations such as Leeds, London, Sarajevo, Amsterdam, and Islamabad. Their diverse clientele comprises globally recognised brands, including Danone, Eurotunnel Freight, Club Car, and The Royal College of General Practitioners.
Paul Yates reflects, “My journey through the digital landscape has been rich with experiences and insights, with sales standing as my enduring passion. Re-entering the tech business development sphere felt like the right step. GRM’s impressive stature, coupled with its exceptional technical prowess, resonates with my aspirations for advancement. I’m eagerly looking forward to building upon the company’s exceptional accomplishments thus far.”
