Quickfire Digital ramps up global growth strategy with new Head of Growth appointment Dan Walton

Ecommerce specialist, Quickfire Digital – a leading Shopify agency in Europe – has announced the appointment of Dan Walton to the position of Head of Growth.

With over a decade’s ecommerce experience and a proven track record in driving commercial success, Dan is set to play a pivotal role in Quickfire Digital’s ambitious growth plans.

From scaling commercial operations and leading high-performance sales teams, to supporting the strategic goals of hundreds of global brands, Dan’s background in leading commercial functions at Radiant and Eastside Co sees him well-prepared to ramp up Quickfire Digital’s own growth initiatives.

This year has already seen Quickfire Digital celebrate a number of significant milestones, which have collectively cemented its position as one of Europe’s premier Shopify agencies.

Notable achievements have included surpassing 2023 commercial goals; onboarding 30+ new clients in H1 this year; hosting 40+ in-person events for ecommerce businesses and partners; and building powerful relationships that have formed the backbone of the agency’s growth to date.

Co-founder, Martin Harper at Quickfire Digital says: “These results are monumental, and a true testament to the hard work of the entire Quickfire team, which we anticipate to grow – sustainably – beyond 40 by year-end. We have consistently hit commercial objectives year after year, which has led to an increase in our original revenue targets following a robust first half of the year. Dan’s timely addition marks a new chapter in our mission to provide exceptional ecommerce solutions and support to brands worldwide. His strategic vision and deep understanding of the ecommerce landscape will be vital in achieving the agency’s revised commercial targets and sustaining its upward trajectory.”

To unleash the team’s full sales potential, Dan will double-down on generating new business opportunities through an extensive partnership network and supporting the team in implementing cutting-edge business strategies.

Additionally, he will be a key player in organising and representing the agency at major events across the UK and internationally, further solidifying Quickfire Digital’s presence in the ecommerce space.

“Joining Quickfire Digital as Head of Growth is an exciting opportunity,” says Dan. “I look forward to contributing to the agency’s continued success and helping to drive our strategic goals forward. Quickfire Digital has a strong foundation and an incredible team, and I am proud to be joining at such an extraordinary point in its growth journey.”
