New Recruits Join the Team
Our team continues to expand and we are excited to announce the arrival of three new recruits, who will ensure our clients continue to receive the same high-quality service they have come to expect from MirrorWeb.
They include Maggie Nguyen as Head of Talent, Harriet Christie as Account Director and Gareth Johnson as Global Sales Manager.
Partnering with Arkivum
We have signed a partnership with Arkivum, a leader in the digital preservation industry, to provide a hybrid digital preservation and archiving solution
This will combine Arkivum’s expertise in long-term data lifecycle management and digital preservation and MirrorWeb’s skill in web and social media archiving.
Co-sponsored ARA Conference
We were proud to co-sponsor the ARA Conference in Glasgow, which gave us the opportunity to meet 400 key individuals in the heritage sector.
At this event we launched our web archiving and social media service, enabling ARA members to create an archive of their website and social media accounts.
Creating an Archive of EU Law
As reported in ComputerWeekly, The National Archives is racing to create an electronic archive of EU Law before Brexit.
As a partner of The National Archives, MirrorWeb will lead this project and have been collecting vast amounts of data since the referendum in readiness for 28 March 2019 when the UK will leave the European Union.
Team's Personal Achievements
It’s not all about web and social media archiving, we also wanted to take this opportunity to highlight some of the achievements of our team.
Jamie Hoyle, VP of Product at MirrorWeb, has a feature in the The Telegraph, whilst Karl Stringer, Chief Product Officer of MirrorWeb, has completed his first solo flight and is now well on his way to his Private Pilots Licence.
