New day,new opportunity

by Peter Young on November 5, 2010 · 5 comments

There has been a lot of people who have asked me recently about what is happening with me. I can confirm that I am leaving Mediavest Manchester after nearly two and a half fantastic years as their Head of SEO. It wasn’t a particularly easy decision to make but my new destination provided me with a new challenge which I am incredibly excited about.

Mediavest is a great organisation, and I feel I can be incredibly proud of what I achieved there alongside Jon Myers (soon to be at Yahoo) and Elliot Muscant – and feel that I have departed at a time where the SEO team is in a good shape to compete with the biggest agencies in the UK. With new blood such as Tom Cull now at the top, their are new ideas and new drive.

However my new opportunity was brilliant, one I really couldn’t turn down and working with some very clever people – and building upon the skills I have developed during my 9 years in the industry. The new role, also as Head of SEO will offer me the chance to further develop an existing team – working with some of the biggest clients in the UK.

As a final note – I would like to thank both Jon Myers and Elliot Muscant for the opportunity at Mediavest – as well as a fantastic team who I got to share some fantastic moments with with some truly superb clients and wish them both indivdually and Mediavest all the best in the future – unless of course they come up against me :)

It may be the end of one era, but its the start of another……

Congratulations on the new job Pete. Nice work. BTW, love the subliminal hint about where you’re off to.

Thanks for the messages James and Laurie. Really looking forward to the start – not really one for sitting round and doing nothing for a long period of time

That said, MV was a great place and one I will always look back fondly on – particularly with the great team I worked with
