Digital agency hires sales specialist to help customers in Covid recovery efforts

Swindon-based digital agency O’Brien Media has hired business sales specialist Dylan Fernandez to help customers understand the digital marketing options available to them to aid their Covid recovery efforts.

It is the first hire made by the Cheney Manor-based company since the outbreak of the pandemic.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Dylan to the team,” said Chris Grant, head of design and development at O’Brien Media.

“As our first hire since Covid began to wreak havoc on a global scale we wanted someone who understood not only the digital options available to customers but also the benefits of face-to-face communication.

“We didn’t just want a salesperson, we wanted someone who could advise our customers on the best options for them to aid their recovery as the Swindon economy gets back on its feet. Dylan was an obvious choice with his in-person sales background and understanding of social media and communications technologies.”

Dylan said: “It’s an exciting time for the world of digital marketing making this role a stimulating one especially in these unprecedented times.

“I’m enjoying using my experience to expand local and national businesses understanding of how to utilise their digital presence to enhance sales and brand awareness to their target audiences.

“The position has had its challenges due to Covid-19 restrictions, but I stay hopeful of lockdown easing giving Swindon businesses more faith in business returning back to a profitable state for them.

“I’m excited to attend more networking and expo events and working on expanding O’Brien Media through partnerships and our customers’ businesses through the relevant digital channels.”
