Young digital agency Venn Digital has come on leaps and bounds since their establishment just two years ago by Managing Director, Brian Whigham. With an extensive list of over 50 clients spanning across various industries they now have two award recognitions to add to their list of achievements.
The annual British Excellence of Sales and Marketing Awards (BESMAs), organised by The Institute of Sales & Marketing Management, exist to reward and recognise those who have exceeded industry standards and excelled in the field of sales and marketing over the last year. This year they chose to recognise the digital agency for their incredible sales efforts in the Newcomer of the Year category.
The agency was up against some seriously tough competition, with the likes of Virgin, DHL and Auto Task all nominated in the same category. Yet despite sharing the category with such strong and commercially established contenders, the digital agency’s leading Sales Manager, Sarah Toms deservedly took home the runner up award and will be featured in the ISMM magazine, website and newsletter.
Sarah’s success on behalf of Venn Digital as a whole can be directly attributed to their cohesive and dedicated approach of applying creative minds to deliver business results for their clients. Furthermore, Sarah’s committed attitude combined with her shrewd understanding of both the digital sector and client commercial needs is what has elevated her to the deserving position of Sales Manager and to the opening of their London office.
Sarah was ecstatic to be recognised, saying: “I’m so pleased with the recognition we are starting to receive as an agency and I also think that the great thing about these awards is that they don’t just look at the figures.”
“I’m a firm believer that anyone working in sales and marketing needs to take a more personalised approach and really make an effort to truly understand their industry as well as that of their prospective clients. It’s not about talking the talk anymore, it’s about delivery and I think that’s an approach that really does stand the test of time. It is infused into everything we do which is why we’re able to consistently deliver such great results and generate more news business.”
This boost is a big sign of things to come for the agency with their growing team and client base.
