AYKO Enters Exciting New Era

Posted: 4 December 2020

We’re excited to share the news that AYKO is levelling up with a new leadership team that will enable the business to further elevate the service we deliver for our clients.

It’s a leadership team that combines the considerable skills and experience of three of AYKO’s Founders.

James Hyett, formerly joint Chief Commercial Officer, moves into the role of CEO, while the other former joint Chief Commercial Officer, Steven Morris, steps into the position of COO. The third spot is occupied by Bruce Mead, who will continue as CTO.

James, as you will know, is passionate about problem-solving and creating pragmatic solutions that empower people and teams to succeed. With over 15 years experience spanning from FTSE-listed companies to start-ups, he has a wealth of knowledge across multiple verticals.

With an extensive experience of client-side and agency-side, Steven is the perfect fit as COO, blending a talent for building and maintaining great client relationships with hands-on, serious technical know-how.

Bruce, meanwhile, is simply one of the best in the eCommerce development game, with market-leading expertise in shaping best-in-class online purchasing experiences that delight and convert our respective clients’ audiences.

Jamie Jackson is stepping down from the role of CEO to pursue other interests but will continue to add value to AYKO as a shareholder and board observer. We would of course like to thank Jamie for his contribution to the business and wish him all the best in his future endeavours. We’re very proud to say that AYKO remains independently and wholly owned by its leadership team.

AYKO will continue to be a full-service digital agency that crafts and grows fantastic eCommerce experiences.

With a sizable team of eCommerce professionals – including developers, designers, project managers, quality analysts, UX specialists and marketers – we love to work together to drive success for our customers.

There are really exciting times ahead for AYKO and, most importantly, for you, our highly valued clients.

The transition to the new leadership team has already been an incredibly smooth one, and we look forward to introducing improved processes that will further enhance service delivery.

We understand that you may have questions about the change in leadership and what it may mean for you, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch hello@ayko.com

In the meantime, here’s to you, AYKO and an amazingly successful future together.

All the best,

Team AYKO
