10th September 2020 11:55

We are delighted to announce that Elliot Simmonds has been promoted to Research Director after an exceptional contribution to the company for more than a decade, and following his successes as Associate Director.

Elliot first joined the team back in 2007, when the agency was in its relative infancy, and has since played an important role in driving the business forward.

He said: “Thirteen years is a long time to be associated with a business, but I’m really pleased to have continued in my role at DJS as we’ve grown and to have had the support and mentoring of the whole team, but particularly the Board. DJS is an advert for the value of family-owned businesses, and I’m incredibly proud and thankful to have been able to contribute over the years in a few different ways.”

Describing Elliot as 'an exceptional researcher’ who has been instrumental in ‘pushing DJS to the fore in a variety of different ways’, Board Director, Sharon Nichols, praised his successes in research and business development as well as his contribution to other areas of the organisation including thought leadership, marketing and innovation.

His capacity as a researcher has seen him work with many leading clients and organisations across many sectors, with particular expertise in education, culture and heritage, and software and technology. Elliot also plays a key role in developing and delivering a number of proprietary tools, including VoicED (our proprietary teacher offer) and Alumnus (alumni experience benchmarking and affinity tracking).

Managing Director of DJS Research, Danny Sims, said of the appointment:

“We are delighted to announce Elliot’s promotion to Research Director at DJS Research. Since he first walked through our doors over a decade ago, we knew he had a great deal to offer the company and he has proven to be a huge asset.

"Not only is Elliot an exceptionally talented researcher, he’s been instrumental in driving the business forward. This promotion is incredibly well deserved – and we’re excited to see what the future holds.”

From the entire DJS team, huge congratulations!
