mmadigital, the online marketing agency for the legal sector, has appointed Dan Walsh from leadership and brand engagement specialists Cirrus Connect to lead its client accounts.

Reporting directly into mmadigital’s CEO, Dez Derry, Dan joins as head of project and account management bringing with him 10 years’ experience of project managing multi-million pound marketing campaigns accounts for blue-chip clients, including: RBS, HSBC, Lloyds Banking Group, 3, ASDA, Tesco and law firm, DWF.

With a law degree, and professional services experience, Dan is ideally placed to help the agency increase its presence in the legal sector.

Dan’s role will be focused on developing new client care strategies for the agency and act as a key point of contact for clients.

Dez Derry, CEO, mmadigital says: “We’ve recently been instructed to undertake some big budget, high quality projects for law firms, so it’s important we can support all our clients with someone who has great credentials of managing big campaigns. Dan’s experience considerably strengthens our expanding team and will ensure we deliver the highest standards not only for current and future clients. We are very pleased to have him on board.”

Dan Walsh adds: “I am very much looking forward to joining mmadigital. They’re a fresh, innovative and forward-thinking company and the chance to help them achieve their aim of becoming the number one in web, video and lead generation capabilities for modern law firms, is an exciting opportunity. I’ve been really impressed with the high quality of their projects and I’m confident the project management experience I have will complement the already well-established and talented team, to deliver top-quality products for our expanding client base.”
