Run2 – Manchester-based digital marketing agency – has expanded its team with the appointment of Laurence Hebberd as social media manager.

The business has grown its headcount from 12 to 20 in the past three years due to continued client acquisition. Laurence Hebberd, a social media specialist from London, has joined from Cubaka and will work alongside Dave Nicoll who is head of social at Run2.

His experience in community management, strategy and organic growth in social agencies will add to the Run2 social team. His past clients include Clipper Teas, Mercedes-Benz, GoCompare, Hager Group, Virgin Trains, Whole Earth, Adecco and Orange.

On the move, Hebberd says, “I was really impressed by the calibre of clients Run2 is working with and the results the team is generating. All too often in our industry, agencies make bold claims about boosting clients’ businesses with digital marketing but the substance isn’t there. At Run2, the team’s work speaks for itself. It’s a brilliant time to be joining the ever-growing Run2 team – where possibilities to be creative within the agency are endless."

Christian McGinty, managing director, adds, “The agency started with search and digital marketing at its core. As we’ve expanded our remit to provide a full-service to clients it’s great to have talented individuals like Laurence on board as part of the team. His past experience is a welcome addition, as is his energy and enthusiasm.”
