Alderley Edge, 3rd June 2008 â€“ Mobile marketing company Mediaburst today announces that its finance director, Gary Bury, has been appointed managing director of the company with immediate effect. In his new position, Bury will consolidate the progress made by the company over the past year, particularly as a mobile marketing support company for marketing and advertising agencies, helping them to develop and deploy their digital media strategies.
A qualified accountant, Bury developed his skills with a fast growing group of finance companies in New Zealand. He returned to the UK in 2003 and was appointed finance director of property consultants Ep2 where he was instrumental in improving management reporting systems and grooming the company for an eventual trade sale in April 2005.
Bury joined Mediaburst in January 06 as finance director and became a major shareholder in August 06 and part of a new management team that purchased the business. His remit was extended by the board in November 06 to cover all technical and operations departments. Mediaburst is now a more focused company, delivering products and promotions that bring commercial gain to Mediaburst and value to its customer base of enterprises, marketing agencies and re-sellers.
Bury’s contribution to Mediaburstâ€™s success was recognised at the prestigious Fast Growth Business Awards event this year having been nominated as one of three finalists for the Finance Director of Year Award.
“Mediaburst has made significant progress over the past year as a mobile marketing company and 2008/09 will see the company consolidate and build its business relationships with marketing and advertising agencies,” says Bury. “Mobile messaging campaigns are becoming essential to brands to better interact with consumers and Mediaburst has the expertise and products to help ensure their success.”
Congratulations on the appointment Gary!
