Justin Pearse: joins Bite on 1 July

Pearse, who has been at New Media Age for the past 12 years, will join Bite as its head of innovation on 1 July.

He said: 'Communications is changing dramatically as a discipline, driven by digital media, and Bite is at the forefront of that change. Its senior staff and client roster make it the perfect next step after 15 years covering digital media marketing and technology as a journalist.'

During his time at New Media Age Pearse oversaw the title’s move to become a digital-only publication with paywall-protected content. At Bite, he will help clients understand and benefit from those changes.

Kath Pooley, Bite MD, Europe, said: 'Justin’s experience will help in two ways: playing a key consultancy role in helping clients change the way they communicate and ensuring Bite itself stays one step ahead in the services it delivers.

'He will join our senior team in a new role created specifically to help us build new offerings and reach our network in a booming sector. This is another milestone in the company’s transformation towards delivering truly integrated digital communications and marketing services and is a fantastic hire for us.'
