Belfast Media Agency Excalibur Press Welcomes New Senior Developer To Marketing & Content Team
Despite losing their offices in the Cathedral Buildings fire earlier this month Belfast based multidisciplinary marketing and media agency Excalibur Press have expanded their operations to include a new in-house website and software development department.
In the last number of years the company has become a key partner for many businesses, helping clients develop and tell stories through multidisciplinary content and marketing services across a wide range of channels both online and offline.
Senior developer Adam McBride has over a decade of experience helping businesses plan, create and maintain an online presence whilst offering a range of additional creative technology services such as app development, CRM system development and online learning platforms.
Through his own company Belfast Web, Adam also provides companies with secure website hosting and associated services.
Excalibur Press director Tina Calder said: “It’s been a tough month for us but in September we made the decision to invest in the future of our company and our clients by adding a hugely experienced senior developer to our team.
“Although we’re now based in temporary offices thanks to the generosity of fellow media agency Mammoth in the city centre we haven’t let that stall our plans for expansion.
“Having worked with Excalibur Press since its inception it was an obvious choice to bring Adam into the business when we decided to make an investment into this area of our work.
“His extensive experience, creative thought processes and ability to offer clients a wide range of services means I am very confident he will be able to build our web development and digital transformation department whilst keeping our clients at the heart of everything we do.
“Adam will now work over the next three years to build a team of staff and freelancers including developers, designers and other specialists who will be able to offer an end to end service for all our clients from small businesses to large corporations supporting them across all elements of their digital journey.”
Currently Excalibur Press are a full service agency offering everything from publicity management, marketing, crisis comms and PR through to content creation, digital media, social media, website development, search engine optimisation and copywriting.
Speaking of his appointment Adam said: “I am delighted to join the team at Excalibur Press having worked with the business for many years.
“I share Tina’s vision to add services and capacity to an already growing multidisciplinary team and to build towards becoming the go to agency for ambitious small and medium-sized enterprises throughout Northern Ireland as well as delivering a high quality service to large private and public sector organisations.
“Digital transformation can sound scary to any organisation, however, working with a specialist can help businesses to create, streamline and improve their processes and operations allowing them to become more efficient and profitable.
“Digital transformation for a small business could be as simple as setting up a mailing list, developing a landing page website or setting up and managing their social media. For a medium organisation it could be improving online payment systems, developing a CRM for their sales team or creating an app for their customers. Larger organisations may require everything from a members portal and online learning platform to overhauling their entire digital system.”
With clients ranging from Tourism NI, PAC Group, Mid & East Antrim Council, National World and Taste Causeway to Ryobi, Cathedral Quarter Trust, 4C UR Future and Barbour Engineering & Fabrication, Excalibur Press’ unique multidisciplinary ethos means businesses and organisations can contract out part or all of their marketing and media needs reducing the need for communicating with various third party contractors.
Tina added: “Our reputation for no-nonsense honesty with our clients has led many customers to rely on us to help build their own communication channels, including everything from full development of their websites and marketing materials to managing digital media channels and corporate copywriting.
“With all of our core services now being represented in-house within our staff team we are now able to offer clients a faster, more efficient service as well as being able to meet an increasing demand for our unique multidisciplinary ethos.”
