Online sales house 24/7 Media UK has strengthened its ’back room’

staff to cope with expansion and offer a more efficient service.



The company, which now handles more than 40 UK sites, says it has seen a

’fourfold increase’ in business over the past four months.



Emma Trollope joins as sales co-ordinator and Peter Miles has been

appointed UK ad operations co-ordin-ator, providing support for

campaigns. Matthew O’Leary joins as client services co-ordinator,

providing clients with comprehensive reports on site traffic and

statistics.



All three employees are recent graduates.



Sales director Mark Nall commented: ’With the explosive growth last

year, some clients found their service levels were getting a little

stretched. To ensure that we can continue to expand while maintaining

quality of service, we needed to beef up the back end of the operation.

These recruits are a very welcome addition to the team.’



The sales house’s UK websites include women-oriented Handbag.com, online

directory Scoot, Channel 5 and music site Peoplesound. It now has around

20 staff.



Meanwhile, in two deals worth a total of pounds 93 million, 24/7’s New

York-based parent has acquired two companies specialising in campaign

management, tracking and analysis.



The first acquisition, Imake, is best known for e.merge, a collection of

applications that manage electronic campaigns. The second company,

Sabela Media, manages, monitors and analyses online campaigns.
