Prior to joining KOMI, he was the sales director at Social Chain Media, which is part of the Social Chain Group, and previously held senior roles at Mediacom and The Telegraph Media Group.
In his new role, he will focus on driving revenue across the firm for its core services including content, licensing and video production. Additionally, he will work to develop relationships between KOMI and the media and creativity agency sectors in the UK.
His appointment follows the announcement that Terry Pierce has been made Head of Commercial to oversee sales and marketing activity within KOMI Group. Pierce was initially appointed as Head of Distribution and Partnerships earlier this year but moved to his new role in October following a recent restructure of the sales and marketing operations.
The restructure is aimed at creating a consistent offering across the core solutions amid plans to double the commercial team headcount by the end of the year.
Hodkinson (pictured) said on his new appointment: “The talent within KOMI is exceptional so I’m excited to be joining the business. It continues to build some of the most engaged communities on social media and boasts industry leading expertise that delivers fantastic content for clients across multiple sectors. Add in the fact that it owns 100,000+ pieces of content in the licensing arm and you have a pretty unique offering.”
The Tradesman - now part of the KOMI portfolio - is the world’s second largest community for tradespeople, with millions of views across its social channels.
