PhotoBox, the UK’s number one digital photo storing, sharing and printing website, is delighted to announce the appointment of Lawrence Merritt as UK Marketing Director. Merritt’s appointment represents a period of continued investment in the company’s future and his extensive experience will prove invaluable as PhotoBox embark on their next phase of growth.
Merritt joins PhotoBox with 15 years experience of online marketing and commercial business development. Most recently he has held senior marketing roles at Expedia and Yahoo! Europe where he was director of European marketing services. At PhotoBox, he will be responsible for all sales, marketing and business development activity in the UK.
This high profile appointment follows a year of exceptional growth for PhotoBox; 2007 has witnessed the brand reaching the 2 million member milestone, acquiring €10 million venture capitalist investment and will within days see the launch of Greetings by PhotoBox where the brand will enter the online greetings card market. Following PhotoBox’s merger with PhotoWays in 2006, the year ahead will see exciting developments for PhotoBox including a group rebrand and migration to a new web platform. Merritt’s appointment will undisputedly support PhotoBox through this phase of transition.
Commenting on Merritt’s appointment, Mark Chapman, Managing Director of PhotoBox said: ‘Within the past 12 months our marketing team has grown exponentially and strategically, we needed to invest further in senior management to lead this division. Lawrence brings a wealth of experience to PhotoBox and he is, in my opinion, one of Europe’s best web marketing talents and we are delighted that we are able to attract such talent to our company’.
