We are delighted to announce that Michael Bartley has been appointed as Deputy Managing Director.
He will be helping C8 to continue its growth after closing its best year ever and seeing the business double in size. Michael is a big personality, insightfully brilliant, engagingly professional and thoughtfully creative. He has strong commercial acumen combined with a curious, creative mindset and brings all of this experience to his new role.
Previously Michael held the role of account director at C8 looking after clients such as Carbon Black, OutSystems, iland, Pocket App, Panasonic and NetDespatch, helping these clients to achieve recognition and build sales. Michael will now also focus on expanding C8’s digital and social capabilities. Prior to joining C8 four years ago, Michaelworked at another PR agency in London, where he secured regular national coverage for several high profile financial and technology titles including interviews on BBC Breakfast, The Gadget Show, and in national newspapers. Since joining C8, he has regularly repeated this exceptional performance.
2017 has been another exciting and fulfilling year for C8 Consulting; in fact, the business has doubled in size. This means that not only did C8 close some great new business, winning some remarkable new clients, but it has also worked on some really interesting creative projects as well as extended its services with many of its existing clients.
In particular, over the past couple of years we have been working with an increasing number of tech companies, which has been incredibly rewarding. Whether that’s been PR, copywriting, marketing support, digital and social media or managing events, every day has brought us new and exciting challenges. Likewise our international work has never been so broad. We’re running programmes for clients not just in the UK but right the way across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and even Australia.
