It’s Gone Viral has appointed Urban Splash’s Sam Lenehan as a non-executive director.
The Manchester-headquartered social media marketing company has strengthened its board with the appointment of Lenehan, an Associate Director at housing developer House by Urban Splash.
House by Urban Splash is a partnership between regeneration pioneers Urban Splash, the UK government and the largest house builder in the world Sekisui House.
Lenehan will work closely with It’s Gone Viral’s founders Andrew Trotman and Ryan Williams on executing the firm’s ongoing growth strategy.
“Social media has become a fundamental part of how consumers interact with the brands they love,” said Lenehan.
“Having built some of the biggest social media brands in the country over the past three years, the guys at Its Gone Viral have an almost unparalleled expertise.
“By falling into the agency space, they’ve become some of the most qualified social media advisors in the country.
“I genuinely believe that having built and maintained their own internal portfolio of pages, It’s Gone Viral has the opportunity to be something different: disrupting the agency market through its unique expertise, backed by a visible track record that’s there for all to see.”
Trotman commented: “Sam brings a unique set of skills and experience that have already proved incredibly valuable.
“The past six months have seen us quadruple our headcount, move into Manchester city centre and deliver six billion impressions across our portfolio.
“We are extremely excited on the journey ahead. 2020 is going to be a year of significant growth and we’re only just getting started.”
