Dept Strengthens Its Sales Team Ahead Of 2020 Growth Plans

International digital agency Dept is gearing up for continued growth in the UK with the appointment Paul Thomas as Client Development Director and Engagement Manager James Shilton.

Thomas joins Dept with over 15 years’ experience driving business growth via acquisition, digital transformation, marketing and account development. With a passion for digital and a hybrid background involving technology, creative thinking, strategy and marketing, Thomas is perfectly poised for the integrated digital agency. Prior to Dept, Thomas was Director of Business Development at Zone (part of Cognizant) and Head of Sales at Kagool.

Thomas said:

It’s an exciting time to join Dept. Just three years in, the agency is a top UK agency and is expanding across the globe with unprecedented levels of growth. Dept is ambitious, with talented teams of specialists in all areas of emerging tech, ready to reinvent the digital industry. I’m looking forward to continuing to drive the agency forward with high-calibre opportunities.

Thomas is a Sitecore MVP and has established relationships with Dept’s key technology partners, which makes him even more of an asset. Thomas will be overseeing the new business growth of Dept’s design and technology services in the UK, partnering with new brands and expanding the agency’s technology partnerships.


Dept also welcomes James Shilton from Kagool, who has joined Dept to grow its sales operations team to help fuel the agency’s new business aspirations.

Shilton said:

Joining Dept to develop a sales operations team is a welcomed opportunity. With its full service offering and impressive client roster, I look forward to optimising all of our experience to reach and engage businesses across the UK. On a personal level, I am looking forward to growing the team ahead of an exciting 2020 at Dept.

After a strong year of growth, the agency isn’t showing signs of slowing down, with further expansion planned for 2020. The UK client roster includes Triumph, Formula E, O2 and Sony PlayStation.
