Simon Cooke joins the team at Bozboz as Managing Director
We’re delighted to announce that Simon Cooke has been appointed as the agency’s new Managing Director.
Bringing over 20 years of industry experience to the company, Simon will join our growing team in Brighton. Working closely with our founder Mike Hollingbery, he’ll oversee all business functions and help achieve the agency’s long-term goals.
“After meeting Simon, I had no doubt that our visions were aligned. With an immense understanding of design principles and how to apply them to the web, he brings a wealth of experience to the role. And having worked as a creative director and an agency founder himself, he really understands the path we’re following. On a personal level, he’s a great cultural fit - we’re delighted to have him,” said Mike Hollingbery.
Before taking the position at Bozboz, Simon was successfully leading the commercial team at Pragmatic, Europe’s leading WordPress agency. As Commercial Director, he spearheaded the agency’s creative approach to business development and client services. Prior to this, he established BrightonWP, a WordPress design and development agency. Simon was also the co-founder of a creative agency: Republique. He held this position for 13 years before the business merged with Pragmatic. But with over 20 years’ experience in the creative industry, it was always his dream to head up an agency like this.
“I was absolutely delighted to be appointed Managing Director at Bozboz. Creativity is so important here and there’s a level of professionalism that's unusually high. I wanted to be part of a team that not only understood design, and used it to great effect, but also allowed themselves to explore and take risks. There’s a real energy at this agency and I think the most exciting times are yet to come. With such inhouse talent and determination, Bozboz has a very bright future,” said Simon Cooke.
Simon will start his new role at Bozboz on 3rd January 2020.
