Bicester: Creative SEO agency hires three new recruits

Oxfordshire creative SEO agency Evergreen has announced three new team hires, further expanding its digital PR offering for clients. The six-figure sum investment in this service brings on board a wealth of experience in the PR industry with Holly BarryFran Griffin and Gabrielle Sarpong joining the now 11-strong team.

The agency specialises in SEO and PPC services, with the shared objective of improving its clients’ visibility online.

Aaron Rudman-Hawkins, MD and founder of Evergreen, said: “Digital PR is an increasingly big part of the SEO service we offer for clients. To improve rankings and visibility, clients need to have referral traffic and links from top tier sites (news publications)… and that is where digital PR is gold. Our three new recent hires mean we are making huge waves in our industry and quickly becoming one of the fastest growing agencies in the south of England.

“I’m delighted to welcome three more hires to my growing team. Looking back on our expansion this year, I have actually hired a new team member every six weeks! Results we are now able to deliver for our clients are outstanding, and I’m looking forward to even more creative campaigns. The shared expertise between these three most recent hires is worth the six figure investment for our business to move forward and continue to be at the forefront for creative SEO.”

Holly Barry joined Evergreen remotely during lockdown as senior digital PR strategist, having previously worked on creative campaigns at agencies Distinctly and Bottle. She now heads up Evergreen’s digital PR team, working closely with the agency’s PPC and SEO senior strategists.

Griffin brings to the team more than eight years’ experience in getting clients coverage in national, regional and trade media publications. Fran has joined Evergreen as senior digital PR & marketing strategist, and has both digital and traditional experience under her belt.

Sarpong relocated from London to Oxfordshire to join Evergreen as digital PR strategist, and has a wealth of experience – including roles at digital marketing agencies and also in-house –  in landing links for clients in the consumer lifestyle space.

Evergreen’s newly formed digital PR team will be working on a mix of regional, national and international brands across a variety of industries; from food & drink to construction, and professional services to interiors… and many more.
