Growing into our NEO home

Growing into our NEO home

7 months into our NEO home and we have settled in nicely. The extra space has proven very useful as we have increased the company headcount by 33% over that short period of time and have recently celebrated our 25th consecutive quarter of year on year growth.

Not only have we significantly bolstered editorial and sales resources to account for our growing client base, we are also pleased to announce the November 2017 opening of our West Coast U.S. operations and welcome onboard Ceri James as Chief Operating Officer.

Optimizing Operational Efficiency

Ceri brings with him over 25 years’ industry experience working in medical and scientific communications including AstraZeneca where he held various sales, business management and marketing roles. He also brings agency expertise, from McCann Health where he held roles in brand consultancy and innovation, as well as organizational capability development experience with Brand Learning, now part of Accenture.

Editorial Intellect

Adam King comes from a cancer research background. Having graduated from the University of Leeds with a Masters in Medicinal Chemistry, he undertook a four-year adventure which saw him travelling the globe and even opening his own hotel in Koh Samui, Thailand.

Joan Nugent joins the editorial team and comes from an extensive proofreading background. Joan studied Film and Media at Manchester Metropolitan University and she exercises her creative streak by enjoying photography, illustrations and calligraphy in her spare time.

Matt Rafferty joins us with a first-class Masters degree in Chemistry from Sheffield Hallam University. Away from science and medical writing, Matt can be found adventuring in the Swiss Alps or teaching classical guitar.

Coding Characters

Evgeny Lukiyanov is a software developer whose enthusiasm for coding can also be seen in his range of hobbies including: travelling, photography, fitness, making music and generally throwing himself into life.

Creative Cats

Beth Burton brings her front-end web development skills to the creative team. Beth graduated from the University of Liverpool with a degree in International Business and a MSc in Computer Science. When she is not enhancing her programming skills, she can be found enjoying country music or keeping fit.
