WDA is excited to announce the addition of 4 new team members to our growing Automotive agency this month. In adding 4 new faces to our digital and creative teams, we’re able to provide increased support to new and existing clients – including additional language capabilities, all backed up by our extensive industry knowledge.

WDA sat down and asked each new team member a few questions. Get to know them below…

Meet Alex Jay
Digital Marketer / Designer

WDA: Alex, what experience and skills do you bring to the WDA team?

Alex: I’ve always wanted to be involved in the world of marketing but found myself loving design. I’ve worked my way up from being a marketing apprentice to what I would now consider a professional designer. So, I bring a wealth of marketing knowledge from previous experiences and my design skills to WDA. I believe I’m at my best when creating fresh, new graphics and website designs for clients.

WDA: Tell us a fun or interesting fact about yourself…

Alex: Outside of the marketing world I’m a lover of anything techy – mostly video games and eSports. I’ve also got the required passion for cars and have owned 5 different cars in the 6 years I’ve been driving. I’m currently still enjoying my latest – a Fiesta ST, whilst I wait for the Ford Mustang to arrive on my drive!

WDA: What was your first car and what is your dream car? 

Alex: My first car was a 1990’s Corsa. My dream car is a Ford Mustang.

WDA: What are you most looking forward to about working with WDA?

Alex: I look forward to driving forward my professional development and learning all that I can from my peers. Working in the Automotive industry is by far the most exciting industry I’ve worked in before and I’m ready to make my mark!

Thoughts from WDA’s M.D...

Lee Waterhouse, WDA Automotive Marketing Managing Director, had the following to say on our continued growth and expansion:

I’m personally really excited to welcome the four new team members aboard and am confident that they will help WDA drive even more business for its automotive clients. As well as the obvious extra capacity, each individual brings a range of new skills which add to WDA’s overall offering.

The new hires were critical following a string of new business wins and being awarded new projects from existing clients, and we still have three more vacancies to fill!
