Mediaworks appoints senior head to expand affiliate offering

Posted: 31st May 2022

One of the UK and Ireland’s largest independent digital marketing agencies, Mediaworks, has appointed Claire Lloyd as its new head of affiliates.

Claire brings in-depth knowledge across sectors including retail, finance, travel, B2B and education. She will focus on bolstering Mediaworks’ current affiliate activity and is tasked with growing a team that will support current clients in their multi-channel paid marketing efforts.

Claire has over 11 years’ experience within the affiliate space, working with a host of household names across Europe, Asia and the US. She said: “It’s an extremely exciting time to be joining Mediaworks as a rapidly-growing, independent agency in the UK.

“I am very passionate about the depth of talent outside of London, particularly in the North, so the opportunity to work with and further develop members of staff across the group is a great bonus.”

Brett Jacobson, CEO and founder of Mediaworks, added: “We think we’ve found the cream of the crop for our clients in a fast-growing, dynamic affiliates market. Her experience is unmatched and adds a fantastic dimension to our performance marketing services.

“With our operations now growing across numerous sites in the UK and Ireland, we’re in an enviable position to be able to offer skilled individuals like Claire opportunities to be a part of the wider Mediaworks family, regardless of location. Adding her to our growing list of secured North West-based talent is further proof our multi-site offering is a big draw for clients and staff alike.”

The senior hires in the North West follows Mediaworks’ recent client partnerships with various brands including Leisure Lakes Bikes – recently acquired by JD Sports – Johnnie Johnson Housing, and United Utilities.

Mediaworks delivers a range of services across SEO, PPC, web dev, brand, content and digital PR. The rapidly growing agency currently has 200 staff across its six offices in Newcastle, Leeds, Edinburgh, Manchester, London and as MWi in Dublin.
