Increase in demand for website and online sales has led to one Cramlington company taking on more staff.

Marketing consultancy MBL Solutions Ltd, based at Apex Business Village, has expanded its e-commerce team with four new appointments.

The company has been producing websites and e-commerce for more than 14 years, working with a range of local and national companies including Sainsbury’s and New Look.

The newly appointed team will support businesses seeking an end-to-end service from e-commerce websites including fulfilment through to gift card and loyalty schemes along with electronic point of sale systems.

Managing director Oliver Stephens said: “The needs and performance of e-commerce has changed enormously over the last three years and many existing websites are not performing effectively.

“Our new additions are all experts in the latest thinking in e-commerce, mobile and responsive websites, website user experience and site optimisation.”

Web developer Anthony Dodds and e-commerce development manager Shaun Brown both join MBL Solutions from Zebra Internet Services.

Anthony will focus on developing e-commerce based websites, making them responsive to mobile internet, while Shaun will be to focus on consultancy and specification of e-commerce websites, responsive websites and gift and loyalty card schemes.

Mark Bishop, who has over 20 years’ digital and design experience, joins as creative director from Orange Bus, and Jordan Sawyer, digital marketing executive, is joining the team from West Digital Marketing.

Dr Steve Winfield, operations director at MBL Solutions, added: “The appointment of highly skilled, creative and talented people to join our experienced team will further spearhead our growth in the e-commerce sector.”
