Hailing from the University of Bath’s prestigious School of Management, Siji is our Growth Director: leading our business development and in-house marketers. He is integral to the implementation of the long-term business strategy behind our agency’s consistent year-on-year growth.

Siji strives to secure rewarding opportunities for Cyber-Duck: from actively securing new client relationships, to forming creative growth strategies and campaigns. With business development, Siji takes an active interest in digital trends and prospects’ industry developments; drawing on our agency’s strengths, he provides an effective, elegant answer to the most challenging briefs.

Beyond the pitch, Siji account manages a range of significant clients; his projects score consistent satisfaction ratings over 90%, with clients confident in their return on investment. His personable approach to establishing and nurturing relationships is behind this success. Alongside relentlessly tackling clients’ business challenges, he takes an interest in their industry, presents extra strategic advice and organises fun social events. 

Siji founded the Digital Pond: our popular digital tech event now has over 2,200 members.

Influential industry figure

Siji’s achievements with us, our clients, and in the wider community led to him being recognised in the 2015 BIMA Hot 100: celebrating influential figures who have had a significant, personal impact on the digital industry. He was one of just four business development professionals to win this accolade. 

Since then, he has been invited by BIMA to talk at about new business best practice at their events. He also secured the hotly contested Account Handler of the Year gong at the Wirehive 100 Awards.

Passionate about contributing to the wider digital community, Siji founded The Digital Pond, a bi-monthly event discussing the latest industry trends. It’s become one of London’s largest free-to-attend digital meetups, attracting fascinating speakers with over 2,200 members. This demonstrates his commitment to sharing skills and knowledge with the wider digital community. Last year, he was selected to judge the finals of Young Rewired State’s ‘Festival of Code’, commending young people’s digital ideas. 

Interests

Taking his last name On-a-banjo to heart, Siji is musically talented and has nailed John Legend’s All of Me on the keyboard. When not making music, he is making cocktails…anyone for a Siji Sunset Surprise?
