“The breadth of marketing, development and consulting capability at APD, combined with the streamlined structure of the business, also enables the type of cross-channel collaboration that makes truly exciting work possible.”
Butterworth is the latest senior appointment for APD, with other leadership roles being filled over the last four months, including Kerry Boys (head of strategic operations), Keith Dodds (director of business consulting), Greg Skinner (head of experience design), and Stuart Oliver (head of sales).
