blur Groups Exeter HQ attracts top tier talent to support stellar growth

Following the dramatic growth in customers, global reach and projects submitted to the exchange over the past three years blur is delighted to announce a number of new hires and internal promotions.  A combination of increasing international s-commerce adoption, first-mover advantage and strategic investment has allowed blur to entice hires from the likes of Virgin Media to key roles in the global teams.  

James Porter joins blur Group as Group Financial Controller from previous tenure as Finance Director with Drift Innovation and City Gateway Media, his 15 years of commercial experience as a chartered accountant making him a clear choice for scaling development of blur Group’s finance function.

Alastair Coggins arrives as Product Manager, bringing with him a diverse project-management portfolio that most recently saw him work with Virgin Media. Alastair’s key role will see him coordinate tech, UX and businesses-related operations, maximising company efficiency and potential.

Additionally, two new internal promotions to C-Level positions further reinforce the career opportunities available within the multi-award-winning company.

Jon Hogg is promoted from Global Head of Platform to Chief Platform Officer and Dorothy Mead becomes Chief Acquisition Officer, previously Global Head of Marketing.

The new faces are clear testament to the strength of a shared vision, says company founder and CEO Philip Letts: “We are building a great global company by hiring and promoting great people. The spectacular growth in our business has made blur a destination employer.  Our staff, new and current, share a vision which is generating a real excitement about working for and with blur.

“The new hires are located at our Exeter HQ. In a further strategic move, all global functions will operate from the Exeter HQ, to ensure and maintain a framework of tightly-synchronised, cross-department productivity. Members of blur based in London at its EMEA commercial hub will shortly be relocating to new offices in Paddington.”

100 jobs are being created at blur’s new Global HQ in Exeter by the end of 2014, so blur is hiring!  Please check outhttp://blurgroup.com/careers/ and contact tara@blurgroup.com
