Leeds Web Development Agency, Blue Mantis, have bolstered their project management offering with new hire Fernando Fernandez-Arnal, following a successful end to the recent quarter.

Fernando, who joins from a previous technical project management role at Force 24, brings with him a wealth of knowledge in streamlining systems and processes and aims to bring new efficiencies to Blue Mantis’ projects.

Director, Martyn Lee, explained “In recent months, many of our clients have leaned on us to help them pivot their businesses through these uncertain times. From supporting our client, Delifresh, in making the switch from B2B to B2C, to helping an american client completely pivot their business model and delivery timeframes to increase their chances of gaining exposure - the team have really pulled together to deliver some challenging but exciting projects.

“Based on this, it feels like the right time to bring someone in to the business who can help us improve internal efficiencies, so that we can offer an even better service to our clients and partners, and Fernando is the ideal fit for this.”

When asked how remote onboarding has been, Fernando explained:“To start a new job, having only met a fraction of the team in real life, is certainly an unusual circumstance, however the level of collaboration and communication across the business has certainly made this easier. It seems everyone has adapted incredibly well to this new way of working. I’m enjoying getting to know the team more through our daily check-ins (and of course virtual Friday beers!) and look forward to helping the business as they scale up further this year.”

Blue Mantis have had a successful recent quarter despite the current climate, having already been engaged on a number of new projects for both existing and new clients this month.
