Appointment News: BGN eyes continued growth with five new team appointments across design and account management teams

BGN – the Manchester-based brand-led design and digital agency – has added five new members to its team as it continues to build on its recent growth. Earlier this year, BGN announced that it expects its revenues to hit £1m with a net profit of around 30% by the end of the 2022/23 financial year.

The agency’s first new starter is Mel Yates who joins as a senior creative. Mel will be focusing on bolstering BGN’s brand and campaign design output. She will also be working closely with Dave Newton, creative director, on managing the wider design and studio teams. Prior to joining BGN, Mel worked at Absolute in Horwich for eight years.

The other new starters in the design team are Ryan Stockall, Nick McLoughlin and Francesca Smith.

Ryan has been appointed as a digital designer. Ryan’s previous role was at Persona where he worked for nearly four and half years. Before that, he worked at Black & Ginger.

Nick is BGN’s newest motion designer. This is Nick’s first agency role after working as a freelancer for seven years.

Whilst Francesca joins as a junior designer specialising in brand, packaging, campaign and digital work. Francesa is a graduate of the University of Leeds, and she recently completed a placement year at Rise at Seven.

The final new appointment is account manager Kat Fogg. Kat has joined BGN from Caspa Marketing and will be handling the day-to-day management of a client roster including Fasthosts, North Highland and Leeds Victoria.

Commenting on her new role, Mel said: “’I’ve always been impressed by the work that BGN produces, and I knew that for my next move I wanted to join an agency which had a wide breadth of clients that were more tied into some of my own passions of food, fitness and pets. This position was perfect for me, but I also quickly realised the team had a collective passion for producing creative work which was inspiring.”

Antonio Giansante, MD and founder, added: “We are delighted that Mel, Ryan, Nick, Francesca and Kat have joined the BGN family. Each are incredibly talented at what they do and bring real energy and enthusiasm which is what we all thrive off. The next couple of years look set to be a strong period for the business and I’m sure they will play a valuable part in taking us to the next level.”
