Croud is thrilled to warmly welcome Piers Butler to the talented team at Croud. Piers will be working as our new Head of SEO, helping to grow and nurture our SEO team in London. 

However, Piers is not just any employee. Piers is the 100th employee to join Croud, which is an exceptionally exciting milestone for us.

In his own words, Piers has said that “I have worked in marketing and SEO for eight years and love to understand how things work. From the discovery of the Higgs boson to the Google algorithm and human behavioural economics.

Before joining Croud I was previously employed by iProspect as the Head of Owned Media Strategy and enjoyed three years growing and developing both myself and our clients’ business goals with award-winning work. I look forward to doing the same at Croud.

Croud is a very exciting company to join and I am proud to be the 100th member of the team. Croud’s business model is quite agile, progressive and exciting. This enables a forward thinking and intelligent approach to driving performance.

I am keen for the new challenges, helping to grow the business and delivering the best in class approach and work to our clients.”

So why is this such an exciting milestone for Croud? In late 2011, two founders, Ben Knight and Luke Smith, created Croud from a simple idea. With an alternative way of working and a lot of hard graft, Croud has since blossomed into a successful global digital marketing agency. In that time, Croud has been credited with being Google’s fastest growing agency for both 2013 and 2014, and the fastest agency to ever get Tier 1 Google support. We have expanded globally into the US, Australia and Shrewsbury.

Ben Knight, COO at Croud says “I’m incredibly excited to be strengthening our incredible SEO team- Piers brings with him a vast amount of experience on some of the UK and world’s most exciting brands- a great addition to the team!”

Whilst we are excited that Piers has joined us, becoming the 100th member of our team, we couldn’t have reached this milestone without a few other important elements. Our thanks, therefore, go to all the other 99 members of the Croud family, our network of over 1000 digital experts who let us run such a smooth operation and have made Croud the success it is today.
