Digital agency Reload Business Group has announced that founder Llew Jury (pictured left) is handing over to director Craig Somerville (right) to manage the Reload businesses.
As Somerville shifts to managing director, Jury will remain an executive director of the Reload Business Group board, ensuring continuity for clients, partners, staff and the business’ overall vision and strategy.
“I‘m very proud of what we have built, and the client success that we’ve achieved in the Australian and UK markets. I’m also very proud of the team that we’ve developed over the past 10 years with the global opportunities that they now have,” Jury said.
“The Reload business has an experienced management team that is passionate about digital business solutions that are firmly focused on our clients’ outcomes. I believe that the Reload story has much further to run.
“Craig is a talented director and business manager. He’s the natural choice, and I’m pleased that he’ll be given the chance to maintain Reload’s momentum.”
“I’m looking forward to remaining in the group, with a chance to also focus on other ventures and opportunities plus spend some quality time with my family.”
Somerville has recently returned from growing Reload’s London office at 160 per cent over the last two years. He’s been with Reload for almost nine years, is MBA-backed, has UK and European business experience, and will lead a team of experienced managers that will ensure seamless continuity.
Somerville said, “we always knew the day would come when Llew would want to move on from the day-to-day running of the business. He’s been instrumental to the success of Reload internationally.
“He’s established a leading digital agency brand and won long-term clients through his entrepreneurship and innovation. His success can be seen in the growth and awards that both Reload and himself have won over the years.
“I look forward to the exciting next chapter of Reload and working with Llew on the board to achieve our international growth targets.”
