Stockton-based digital marketing agency, Acquiro Digital, is celebrating team growth with two senior appointments and predicted £1m turnover in their first year.
In just four months Acquiro Digital has grown from a two-man operation led by digital marketing specialists, brothers Philip and Christopher Hankinson, to reach 13 employees.
Acquiro, who specialise in expert digital marketing services, are based in the Fusion Hive building.
The agency currently employs specialist PPC, SEO and marketing sales staff who work with a wide range of local and national businesses.
The recent expansion has led to Acquiro taking on additional office space within Fusion Hive, with plans in place to move into larger premises in the North-East as they continue to recruit digital marketing staff.
The latest additions to the team includes a skilled social media specialist, an eCommerce designer and an apprentice videographer alongside newlywed SEO specialists Chris and Kat Foster, who come to Acquiro with a combined 20 years’ experience working in large digital marketing agencies, including six at Visualsoft.
The couple will take the lead with the new SEO service, offering technical website optimisation, expert content strategy and outreach and PR services for eCommerce businesses.
Kat said: “We’re excited to become part of the Acquiro team. After working in the industry for so long, we know what works, what doesn’t work and we know exactly what we want to be offering our clients. It’s a great team to be part of and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
Acquiro co-founder Philip Hankinson is expecting further growth as he continues to search for talented digital marketers to add to the team.
“It’s an exciting time for Acquiro,” he said.
“We’ve built some great partnerships with our clients and, with the addition of Chris and Kat to the SEO team, we’re looking forward to expanding our service offering and getting results.
“The North-East is fast becoming a hub for digital marketing talent and we’re looking forward to reaching our next employee milestone very soon.”
