Sigma strengthens team with business development hire

User experience (UX) agency Sigma has announced the appointment of Rebecca Rae-Evans as business development consultant to support with the company’s expansion plans over the next 12 months.

Rebecca has a varied and extensive background in design and digital, working with blue chip clients on award winning research, marketing and website projects. She has worked for over 10 years in digital, specialising in strategic consultancy within the non-profit space, helping people using tech for social good and exploring how the technology industry can make more ethical choices.

Rebecca also co-founded the podcast and event series, Tech for Good Live, and is currently working on The Inclusion Coalition to increase diversity in Manchester’s technology sector. Her most recent roles have included digital engagement manager at The Federation and head of strategy and insight at Reason Digital.

This new role will see Rebecca taking responsibility for the management of some existing client relationships and leading some of the team’s marketing and outreach activities. She will also look to expand the business by building relationships with prospective clients across some of the company’s key sectors; Health & Life Sciences, Education, Charities and Government.

Rebecca brings Sigma’s total team to 45, with offices in both Macclesfield – where she will be based – and Cambridge. Sigma is on track for continued growth throughout 2018, with expected sales of £3.7m.

Rebecca said: “I’m so excited about working with Sigma and their talented team to make a difference with digital. Sigma is renowned for doing great work, and working with a range of interesting clients. I hope to bring my experience of working in the non-profit sector to their current and new clients.”

Hilary Stephenson, managing director of Sigma, said: “This is a great hire for us. Not only is Rebecca incredibly talented and proficient at her day-to-day role, but her commitment to promoting tech for good in the industry perfectly dovetails with our business values and outlook. We’re looking forward to doing some great work together.”
