An ecommerce agency’s new digital project manager has told why she decided to leave London and join the Leeds online business revolution.

Christina Edwards arrives at Onstate with an impressive CV that includes a period working in digital advertising in the capital and experience with clients such as Net-a-Porter and Google.

Her appointment means Onstate now boasts a full-time team of 21 people, all based at Graingers Way, off Wellington Road in Leeds.

The firm launched in 2010 with just two staff and today works with firms such as Brown Thomas, Crockett & Jones and Leekes.

Christina, a former Leeds University student, said: “Onstate is a great forward-thinking agency with a very exciting client list and a first-rate approach to building and maintaining client relationships.

“The approach is much more collaborative than anything I experienced during my time in London and this excites me greatly.

“The Onstate team is very talented and it’s easy to see why clients are so invested. Positive working relationships are essential in the digital sector and this was a big factor in luring me back to Leeds.”

The Yorkshire Evening Post runs a regular Digital City column in partnership with Sky Betting & Gaming.

The platform aims to highlight the giant strides being made by a sector that boasts around 3,000 organisations in Leeds.
