Award-winning digital agency Green River Media is expanding operations in the US, with a new branch in Miami, Florida.
Headquartered in Leeds, the firm currently operates in over 20 countries and has offices in Leeds, London and Sarajevo, Bosnia.
The move follows the appointment of Ruben Melendez as CTO earlier this month, and he will actively lead the new US office.
He has previously worked on Walmart, World Trade Center, the Department of Defense and Brightcove accounts.
CEO Nej Gakenyi said: “I believe that our rapid growth as an agency and our expansion to the U.S. market, clearly demonstrates the success of our approach to the business: to break the mould, to prove that there is a better way and to continuously challenge the norm.”
Green River Media specialises in developing complex, but sophisticated websites and intranets.
An in-house team of specialists manages design, SEO, custom integrations, and third party back-end systems.
Melendez will set up the U.S. branch in Miami, and work across the current client base, and managing the web development and project management teams.
He added: “Green River Media’s combination of pushing digital boundaries and listening to their clients’ needs, makes them leader of the digital pack. With a large team of experts qualified in numerous major CMS platforms, we will always choose the best software solution.
“This makes it an exciting business to join. I am looking forward to becoming part of the team and to build and deliver best-in-class digital solutions.”
