Leading British artificial intelligence company Faculty announces today the appointment of Luke Davies-Cooke as Head of Marketing as it looks to ramp up growth and increase brand awareness. The appointment follows Faculty’s plan to add an additional 400 new employees across the next two years, including more than doubling the size of the marketing team this financial year alone, after recently securing £40m in a funding round led by APAX Digital.
Luke is the first senior marketer to join the team and brings 13 years of experience handling marketing and communications for global technology and software brands. He will help deliver on Faculty’s vision to deploy AI solutions to help our customers make better decisions and deliver better services. He will be responsible for driving marketing campaigns for Faculty’s new suite of products that build on capabilities from high profile work for the NHS and Home Office, among others.
Luke joins Faculty from software company Dialog Solutions where he managed a team of content and design professionals and relaunched the brand to market. Prior to this he worked at a variety of communications agencies. Most recently, as an Associate Director at Golin where he worked on campaigns for global industry leaders that included NTT, Dimension Data and Oracle.
‘’Artificial intelligence has the power to impact many different industries, driving greater strategic intelligence within organisations. There couldn’t be a more exciting time to join Faculty as it ramps up its plans to increase brand awareness and bring innovative AI products to market to help businesses reach their full potential.’’
Luke joins the marketing team following the senior appointment in May of Janine Lloyd-Jones, Faculty’s Director of Marketing and Communications.
Thomas Boyd is also joining the team as a PR and Communications Assistant after having previously been part of the communications team at Siemens.
Faculty’s Director of Marketing & Communications, Janine Lloyd-Jones said:
‘’We’re delighted to welcome both Luke and Thomas to our growing team. Faculty is a really exciting place to be right now. As AI changes the world around us, Faculty is helping to shape that landscape. Luke and Thomas’s expertise will bolster our capability and our fantastic existing team, to ensure that we are fully focussed on making AI a simple solution for our customers’ problems.”
