Digital Marketing Agency, Cumbria - About Us

Founder of We Are Digital, Gareth O’Rourke started the business after working 20 years client side, both as a business owner and heading up digital marketing teams. His frustration with many agencies is that they didn’t understand the commercial needs of a business and worked in a very silo way, digital isn’t a silo process and neither is running a business, he wanted to change this by first of all understanding the business needs and then building digital campaigns and infrastructure from that, so that both the agency and client were working as one, integrated, which is what any digital marketing campaign should be. 

His last role was heading up the multi brand fashion business CHO, where over 5 years with the company as Director of International E-Commecre and Buying he grew the UK website by over 300%, launched internationally through numerous channels and launched a dedicated German website. Gareth also won numerous awards including the prestigious Drapers Digital Award for best Digital Marketing Campaign beating Miss Guided, Very and Mr Porter. Before this he headed up the digital for numerous travel and tourism business both in the holiday cottage sector and luxury resort sectors and helped those business add significant revenue through improving their entire digital footprint.
