Taunton-based Evosite has announced a series of new appointments at senior level as part of an exciting new chapter for the eCommerce agency, which continues to go from strength to strength.

Aran Reeks has been appointed as the new Managing Director and will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the business. He will be supported by an experienced leadership team that includes Guy Tucker, who will be taking on the role of Technical Director and leading their expert team of developers and engineers, and Dave Harrison who has been appointed as Non-Executive Director.

Over the last 14 years, Evosite has delivered more than 1,200 websites and online projects for 350 clients, including national and multinational brands such as Your Move, Volkswagen Financial Services, Tui Travel, Kinder, Nutella, Laura Ashley and Dragon Den’s Deborah Meaden.

Aran has been with Evosite for ten years, most recently as Technical Director, and has been instrumental in leading the development teams and helping their partners to excel online. He said: “This is an incredibly exciting time to be taking on the role of Managing Director at Evosite. Over the past year, we faced many challenges, and like many others, we were forced to adapt. With a renewed focus on delivering outstanding service and fantastic results, we’ve forged stronger, genuine partnerships with our clients. Looking back at where we are now, the business has never been in a stronger position, and I’m incredibly excited about our future.”

Guy Tucker has been with Evosite since it launched. He commented on his new role: “I am incredibly proud to have been part of Evosite from its inception and even more so to have worked at the helm for six years. I’m excited to get back to what I love the most – solving complex business problems with elegant technical solutions and mentoring our experienced team of developers and engineers.”

Dave Harrison, the new Non-Executive Director, said: “I’ve been aware of Evosite for many years, and have attended a number of their events. They pack a big punch for a regional agency, and that has always intrigued and impressed me. They're an innovative and dedicated bunch, brimming with talent and ideas, so I'm very excited to join their board as a Non-Executive Director. I can’t wait to get stuck in.”

James Shakespeare, Founder of Evosite, will step aside as CEO and become Chairman of the company. He said: “One of the joys of running your own business is watching people around you grow.
