London based digital marketing agency, Climb Online, has appointed a new Head of Operations. Following an extensive career in finance and investment management, Vishal Shah, 36, joins the agency in his first industry role, where he will apply key experience in data analysis and business consultancy to help the agency hone existing operational processes and achieve its next level of growth.
Despite the economic impact of COVID-19, Climb Online has continued to drive impressive growth over the last year, having increased headcount by 41% over the last 10 months.
With a clear objective to continue to increase market share, Vishal will now work closely with Managing Director, Mark Wright, and the senior leadership team to implement a high growth strategy that will enable the agency to accelerate revenue by 250% over the next 3 years.
Wright confirmed: “When looking for a new Head of Operations, we wanted to bring someone with an extensive finance and analytical background into the agency that would enable us to really refine how we operate, whilst helping us to implement a new strategy that will ensure we grow at scale. Vishal fits the bill perfectly and I am excited to work with him over the coming months. Watch this space.”
Vishal Shah added: “I’m excited to join climb online as Head of Operations, especially at such a pivotal point in its growth. I’ve spent my career working in finance, specifically investment management. I started in accounting, and then moved into areas including data analysis, project and change management. I have also consulted with businesses in marketing and general management.
When I came across this position, it stood out for me for two reasons: my passion for digital and business. I’ve been looking for the right role for me to transition into the digital industry, and after speaking with Mark, I knew this would be the right fit for me. I’m looking forward to taking my experience in finance and business, to ensure Climb Online have the right people and systems in place to allow it to grow to the next level and become a leading digital agency.”
