Hallam has been awarded one of the nine UK Board of Trade Awards for Midlands businesses.
Presented by the Rt Hon Liam Fox MP, Secretary of State for International Trade and President of the Board of Trade, these awards recognise businesses that demonstrate exceptional innovation, delivering prosperity for the UK, and championing free trade.
In presenting the award, Dr Fox said: “The judging panel was particularly impressed with how Hallam have used their platform to promote exporting across the Midlands Engine, inspiring companies alike to export. With over 25 years in the digital industry, founder Susan Hallam has also championed equality and diversity throughout the sector. Hallam is a truly inspirational company, and a key influencer in the digital field.”
Sales Director Jake Third accepted the award on behalf of the company and commented “Hallam is an emerging force in the international digital marketing scene. This award from the Department of Trade follows our recent success in winning The Drum’s Grand Prix Agency of the Year 2018 and being shortlisted for the Google Premier Partners EMEA Awards for Shopping and Display Innovation.
