5 new faces join Axon Garside

Olivia Mason, Emma Bilardi, Danny Lawless, Natalie Simm and Becky Jamieson join the Manchester-based digital growth agency.

It’s been a busy six months in the Northern Quarter office as Axon Garside has adapted its  business model to accommodate its growing client roster.  

They are now one of the few HubSpot Growth Agencies in the UK to offer support in all areas of the HubSpot platform.

As they pioneer this change, five new faces are welcomed into the office to help clients achieve their growth goals. 

Welcoming these new additions to the team is Managing Director Ian Guiver, who commented:

“I’m so pleased to see the arrival of Olivia, Emma, Danny, Natalie and Becky. These individuals will be a great asset to the team, each offering impressive skill sets and boatloads of experience. This growth signals the industry-wide increase in demand for inbound services, and will allow us to continue working hard to meet the needs of our clients.”
