A North East web design and development specialist has strengthened its team as it continues to invest to support planned strategic growth and client services.

Chloe Toogood and Katie Woodward join Sleeky as project coordinator and account manager respectively alongside new web developer, Dean Pifar, and graphic designer, Kate Gunia.

Drawing on her customer services background, Chloe will be responsible for content creation and project delivery while Katie Woodward, who joins from the region’s largest ecommerce agency, will work with clients to maximise their website presence and digital marketing activities.

Bringing considerable experience in online development work to the role, Dean’s duties will see him lead on website and online platform development.
