Following a year of exponential growth, increased team size and the agency breaking into new and emerging markets, this month Sagittarius welcomed the newest appointment to its C-Suite team with Kingsley Hibbert joining its agency board as Chief Technical Officer.
Kingsley’s appointment brings a wealth of experience and expertise in the technical arena as well as a focus on innovation to the agency at a time of rapid growth and expansion.
Kingsley joins Sagittarius following a raft of recent appointments in senior Sitecore focussed technical roles at brands such as PRS and Epsilon.
This appointment is just one strategic move in a program of changes that have been in play for almost 2 years as the agency has evolved into a global digital powerhouse following several significant hires.
The appointment of Kingsley to the c-suite team will see the agency restructure the pillars of delivery, engineering and experience into a strong offering supported by an exceptional Senior Leadership team that will give Sagittarius a refined focus as they build an agency for the future.
The senior management team has also expanded with Emma Nijjar stepping up to be Acting Head of Client Services, Sarah Dennis' role expanding to Head of Marketing and Communications for the agency and Natalie Waite, promoted to Head of Sitecore Optimisation Consultancy, helping our client's marketing teams get the most from the Sitecore platform through training, strategy and implementation consultancy, whilst Claire Battle and Jan Shaw continue as Global Head of Talent and Head of Finance, respectively.
Nick Towers, Joint CEO at Sagittarius commented “Following another remarkable year at Sagittarius, a year that saw revenues grow by another 7 figures and the team double in size globally, we're really excited to be further strengthening our senior team through a combination of internal promotions and by bringing in experienced digital leaders, such as Kingsley.
“As one of the largest independent Sitecore specialist agencies in the UK, and having entered into both the US and Middle East markets in the past 12 months, our new senior team and structure allows us to continue on our mission to be one of the best Sitecore specialist agencies in the world, combining data, strategy, world-class engineering and experience optimisation services so that our clients can continue to delight their customers.''
