Evolved Search has promoted Tom Etherington to General Manager.

The 29-year-old has been working for the Newcastle-based search engine marketing agency since 2017, originally as Head of Search and later COO.

As a result of this promotion, agency founders Ian Macintosh and David Watts will become CEO and CTO, respectively.

“It’s great to be able to offer this role to Tom, which he totally deserves. This is a natural move for Tom, having been such an essential part of our growth for the past five years and already overseeing a large portion of the business,” said Macintosh.

“He is one of the most competent people I have ever worked with, very close in terms of skill set, as well as understanding our industry incredibly well. He is a great person and a natural leader.

“Being a designated Medical Director is an achievement in itself, but doing so before the age of 30 is very impressive. I hope our staff can see what has been achieved here and can draw inspiration from it.”

Etherington will take charge of the overall management of the agency and its goal is to generate £10 million in annual revenue by 2024.

“This is a huge opportunity for me and I am delighted that Ian and David have put such trust in me,” he said.

“We have enjoyed tremendous success and growth so far, so I look forward to being attached to this new role and fulfilling the ambitious plans we have for the agency.”
