Glen Conybeare, previously Chief Commercial Officer takes the reins as Stickyeyes Managing Director whilst Phil Kissane moves to Group Managing Director of the wider Stickyeyes Group with operational responsibility for both Stickyeyes and its Peterborough-based counterpart Zazzle Media.
The agency, which became part of the Reprise Network after its acquisition by IPG Mediabrands in 2016, is one of the most established digital brands in the North of England. Now with over 200 staff across offices in Leeds, Peterborough and London, it has been ranked top in Prolific North’s Top 50 Digital Agencies for the past 4 years and counts global brands including LG, Hertz, mbna, ghd, Staples and Hunter Boots amongst its client list.
Stickyeyes has also announced the launch of a stand-alone offering – Life Sciences by Stickyeyes – dedicated to delivering digital marketing services within the regulated environment of pharmaceutical and life sciences. The 10-person strong team is led by Leo Law, a Stickyeyes alumni and previously of Accenture Interactive and Wunderman and already counts some of the largest life sciences brands as clients.

Commenting on the developments, Conybeare said: “Stickyeyes growth has continued to be very strong, with double digit revenue increases for the last 5 years, down in no small part to our amazing team’s ability to respond to clients’ needs and diversify. We’ve seen continued growth in the services we are perhaps best known for, SEO and Biddable Media, but also phenomenal growth in our Life Sciences division, design and development, content and PR and Demand Generation departments which are all contributing 7 figure revenue numbers individually. We’re proud to say that Stickyeyes is truly a full-service digital agency”.
Law added: “We already have a 20-year pedigree for developing and implementing successful digital strategies for highly competitive markets. In Life Sciences by Stickyeyes we aim to transfer this innovative digital thinking from retail, FMCG and finance [and others] and apply this to the demands of regulated markets. We’ve got the expertise and scale of the IPG Network and the agility and fresh-thinking of a new agency set-up. We’re excited about what we can achieve for clients by shaking up the service on offer and creating a new benchmark for what digital marketing in pharma can be".
Stickyeyes continues to expand the team to support their growth and is currently recruiting for 19 live vacancies across all teams.
