Award-winning digital agency Return appoints new Operations Director

Manchester-based digital agency Return has recruited a new Operations Director to join its ever-growing team of digital professionals.

With over 8 years of experience in the marketing industry, John McAreavey has worked at a multitude of businesses including Google, Danone and The Hut Group. He has gained a wealth of experience at media powerhouses such as MediaCom, OMD Intl and Havas Media.  A recent mover to the north, John spent five years in the London agency world, moving from digital-specific roles to multi-media comms planner.  He has worked with a number of brands, ranging from National Express and Hyundai, to E.ON, Cisco & Samsung, among a number of others.

In a recent Q&A session, John answered the following questions about his decision to join the award-winning Manchester agency:

What attracted you to Return as a company, and what appealed to you about the role?

Having the ability to work with Guy and the brains here at Return was a terrific draw, while the role itself is an incredible opportunity that I couldn’t turn down. Being able to shape the agency and help our client partners deliver substantial change to their respective businesses isn’t something that comes along often. 

What are you looking forward to achieving within your role at Return?

Building upon the agency’s track record. We’re looking to build an agency that is truly unique within the marketplace; one that really gets the business challenges faced by our client partners and can build solutions to help them succeed.  We want to simplify the complex and work as an extension of our clients’ businesses, giving transparent advice and delivering activity that differentiates them from their competition.
