Shopify agency, Statement, has announced changes to its senior leadership, strengthening its management capability to support continued rapid growth.

Enjoying a period of tremendous growth since joining IDHL in 2018, Statement is looking to maximise its future opportunity with the continued success of the Shopify platform and wider collaboration opportunities with IDHL’s most recent acquisition, Fostr.

Further investing in Statement’s management team capability sees Statement MD, Dan Conboy, move into a new Group role as Director of eCommerce Strategy with Jonathan Healey taking over as Managing Director of Statement in addition to his responsibilities at NetConstruct.

In this new role, Conboy will leverage his 20 years eCommerce and first-hand retailer experience to support new and existing clients across IDHL, while leading on sector strategy and sharing industry knowledge, insights and innovations. Conboy has been Managing Director at Statement since the agency was founded back in 2011 and will remain a large part of the Statement management team.

Healey brings over 20 years’ experience in the digital sector to the Statement team, with nine spent as Managing Director at NetConstruct. In this time, he has overseen the growth and long-term success of IDHL’s largest web agency, demonstrating his operational strengths and production expertise.

Of the changes, IDHL Chief Executive, Dennis Engel said: “With his skill and insight, Jonathan is well placed to drive Statement’s next growth chapter working with the teams and developing the infrastructure that will support new business and the introduction of value-add services. We’re equally excited about Dan deploying his direct eCommerce experience and insight, across the whole Group”

Jonathan Healey, Statement’s new Managing Director, said: “Statement is a business that I have admired for some time. They have a fantastic team and are full of innovative ideas. With Shopify’s tremendous success story in recent years, Statement is perfectly positioned to add value to ambitious online retailers. I’m thrilled to be able to bring my experience from elsewhere in IDHL to the Statement team and their clients.”

Commencing in the new role as Director of eCommerce Strategy, Dan Conboy commented: “Over the past decade, it’s been a real privilege to lead Statement as one of the early pioneers in the Shopify eCommerce space, working with some of the country's best-known brands. My career started as a retailer and, as the retail world continues to evolve at pace, I’m delighted to have the opportunity to move into this new role, helping both our clients and wider business to evaluate the best opportunities for future growth.”
