Chris Applegate

It’s always good to start the year off as you mean to go on, and that is exactly what we're doing today. This morning We Are Social is bigger and better than when we downed tools for the Christmas break – we’re very happy to announce that Chris Applegate has joined the team.

We’re always on the lookout for the right people, but it’s hard find to the right mix of knowledge, experience and most importantly enthusiasm for what we do. With Chris, however, it was obvious.

Chris studied Computer Science at Cambridge and then went on to get a Master’s from Edinburgh. He joins us from Outside Line, where he was their Community Marketing Manager, working on social media campaigns for LG, Nike, Eurostar and Vodafone, as well as the famous Berocca Blogger Relief campaign.

You also may know him from some of his extracurricular activities – his personal blog qwghlm.co.uk is ranked 16th in Wikio’s list of the UK’s top Technology blogs, he captured November’s zeitgeist in the UK with LOL Griffin and this satirical YouTube mash-up, has dispensed well received new business advice and, with his jaunty fedora, is a well known member of London’s social media scene.

We're really pleased to have Chris on board, I hope you’ll join me in welcoming him to the team.
