Clicky appoints new Board of Directors

Oli Yeates
CEO & Founder

I’m really proud to announce that we have now appointed the first members of our new Board of Directors here at Clicky.

14 years on from starting Clicky, whilst we have always been ambitious, never would I have imagined back then that we’d be in the position we are today with such a broad range of fantastic expertise and a vision set for positive growth to a scale that warrants a new board of directors to help us drive further success.

The new roles and structure for scaling will play a crucial part in the growth for Clicky and will focus on evolving our offering by consistently delivering value for clients and being seen externally as a commercially astute, thought and market-leading agency on an international stage.

We always look first to promote internally when it comes to new opportunities in the agency, something I’m proud that we still do. 

This move will see five internal promotions as part of the new board of directors; with Sam, who happened to be our first employee, taking the new position of CCO after playing a considerable role in the growth and success of Clicky since its inception. His devotion and drive to constantly innovate and his commercial acumen make the promotion an obvious choice and will enable him to lead the business to succeed in meeting our long-term vision.

When I asked him to comment, Sam said:

It’s a privilege to have such a knowledgeable and committed team around you and to be in a position to recognise their positive impact and give them greater influence and leadership of the business. We couldn’t be more confident that they’ll develop the agency for the better and help us deliver on our service, client, team and ESG commitments as we mature and evolve.

Sam Gadsby, CCO at Clicky.

Laura Hothersall has been appointed the agency’s MD, following several years of success in her Agency Director role. She leads the team with passion and has significantly improved our team development and training plans, operational processes, developed key supplier partnerships as well as supporting Sam and I in the running of the business. Not forgetting how much Laura has added to our company culture.

3 further internal promotions have been made as part of the new board of directors; with Abby Wasik, formerly Head of Client Services and now Client Services Director, overseeing and promoting operational excellence while developing and taking ownership of achieving the very best experience for clients. As Clicky scales and grows, the role will focus on setting new agency standards for our client partnerships and strategic account leadership at Clicky. 

Alex Wright, formerly Head of Search, will now take leadership of our wider Performance Marketing offering working with the Clicky team to grow and evolve our service, allowing the agency to continue to achieve exceptional results for clients in his new role as Performance Marketing Director. 

David Berry, will transition to Client Performance Director, leading on the agency’s specialist team’s standard of knowledge and championing the importance of  delivering commercial success for clients. He will manage team skills development and drive the importance of constantly over-achieving against our clients’ long-term success measures.

Excitingly, this also means there is so much more opportunity for our wider team (more news soon) and indeed new starters (we’re recruiting!).

It’s such a pleasure to work with them all – I’m sure you’ll join me in congratulating the team on their promotions!
