LONDON, June 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
New appointments; recruitment and international business expansion
Digitalis Reputation, the leading Online Reputation Management firm founded by digital entrepreneur Dave King, is currently undergoing a period of rapid growth. The company recently moved from their original base in Southwark to a prestigious location on Arlington Street in Mayfair. The London office is now situated next to the elite Ritz Hotel, which is at the heart of London's West End and easily accessible for International clients travelling via London Heathrow Airport, London City Airport or the London Heliport.
Digitalis is currently seeking the addition of up to 10 personnel for its technical development team in order to expand its offering to take on the demands of significant recent new business growth. Lead by Darren Fullerton and Tom Bateman, the team comprising of business analysts and developers will continue the development of Digitalis' proprietary technology which monitors and analyses search engine results pages for a broad spectrum of clients.
The demand for expansion has been fuelled by rapid growth of clients. Digitalis now represents numerous FTSE 100 and 250 clients in its corporate office, and also counts many private and UHNW clients which can be found in Forbes and the Sunday Times Rich Lists. The recent growth and expansion undergone by Digitalis leaves Digitalis Reputation as the Market Leader and undisputed largest and fastest growing dedicated Online Reputation Management business in Europe.
In addition, Digitalis has made two new appointments to the senior team. Dr. Laura Toogood joins the Client Services team in the role of Client Director and Darren Fullerton will lead the execution team as Head of SERP Strategy.

Laura has also worked as a journalist for leading print and broadcast media, including the Irish Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday and the BBC. Her skill set empowers Digitalis with a valuable insight into media; particularly social media. During her short time at Digitalis Reputation, Laura has already made significant contributions to both new business development and media strategy.
