My name is Ruairidh, most of you may know me as Roo (my email-friendly name), and I make up one third of the in-house YCD team.
I have been with YCD for around 8 months so it’s nice to have the opportunity to introduce myself as I know a number of our clients will have had an email from me at some point along their journey.
For most of the working day I fulfil my role as Account Executive by dealing with support requests, sourcing new technologies for our clients, managing software updates and general website development. I am also responsible for the graphic design side of the business – I have always had a passion for this so I am very excited when a new branding opportunity comes through the door.
For clients that are on an SEO package I am the main point of contact. In brief, I put together the analytics reports, setup sitemaps, carry out backups and maintenance, and make sure you site is integrated with search engines.
Out of YCD hours you will find me in the ice rink, on the golf course, in the gym or sat in front of my computer. I am a sports enthusiast a self proclaimed nerd and a bad loser.
My favourite piece of software is Adobe Illustrator – I spend most lunchtimes creating illustrations and updating my Instagram page, yes I have a separate account from my personal profile, exhibiting these (see, I am a nerd).
