That’s right, you read correctly. Pritesh is flying the nest…
120,889 visitors later (92k of which were unique), 6,709 goals converted* and 1338 days after joining Pauley Creative in April 2010 Pritesh is moving on (albeit not very far).
So, what better way to wrap up the fabulous year we’ve had than by dedicating our final blog post of 2013 to the main man himself.
Ladies and Gentleman – Mr Pritesh Patel (Prates to his chums or ppatel.me for short)…
Consider this not a farewell however, more a recommendation for an incredible talent, an endorsement for a very bright star, one of the best digital marketers I have ever had the good fortune to work with.
Pritesh’s expansive knowledge of web analytics, digital marketing measurement and the implementation of various digital channels has been absolutely legendary for both Pauley Creative and it’s clients.
The effects of Pritesh’s contribution (see below) to the success of Pauley Creative is obvious to all those who’ve had any kind of connection with us over nigh-on 4 years.
Of his many scribblings, this in-depth article from the archive Measuring Marketing Campaign Performance is one of his most popular pieces of content and it continues to define his contribution, his eye for detail and his ability to react to what marketers want to know – it is a genius at work.
There has never been any fluff with Pritesh, he works bloody hard, suffers no fools and fights for what he believes and that’s why he’ll always have my respect and remain one of the best, most sought after marketers for a long, long time to come.
I fear not for his continued success going forward.
We’ll continue to work with Pritesh for the greater good of our fabulous existing clients and no doubt plenty of new ones in the future.
Looking back there have been many memorable moments especially on Twitter but I’ve always liked this one in particular.
Now, after 4 incredibly productive years our man ‘Prates’ is becoming his own employer as of January 2014.
To be fair he’s always been his own boss and we’ve been lucky to have him here for quite as long as we have.
He’s going to be in big demand so, if you haven’t already, I suggest you get to him before your competition does – go to Priteshpatel.me – and again, if you haven’t already connected with him on Twitter or on LinkedIn then do it now!
Personally, I’d like to thank you Pritesh for an awful lot – too much to mention here – but mostly for teaching me an enormous amount, for being incredibly insightful at the drop of a hat, for allowing me to beat you in Fantasy Football this year and for contractually laughing at all my rubbish gags when ordered to.
Thanks Pritesh, I’m very much looking forward to working with you again in the new year and beyond…
