Digital marketing agency Hallam is merging with BigSpring, a leading web design and development agency. The deal results in an agency with 37 employees and annual revenues approaching £3m.
The combined agency will retain the Hallam brand and Hallam founder and Managing Director Susan Hallam will continue to lead the business.
Susan commented “I am delighted to have reached an agreement with BigSpring. Our two companies have worked in partnership for several years now. BigSpring are highly regarded for their web development solutions and their exceptional customer service. Our common values and vision were recognised from day one, and it was only a matter of time before we made the commitment to join forces.”
The merger reinforces the Hallam full service digital marketing offering with a series of new digital design and development services including mobile app development, UX, web design, and graphic design. The robust team of digital developers at Hallam will be led by Technical Director Jon Martin. The BigSpring client roster includes the BBC, Raleigh Bikes, and Jägermeister. Hallam’s clients include the United Nations, The Money Shop, and Experian.
Julio Taylor, one of the founding partners of BigSpring, reinforces the importance of the merger. “We have always focused on building strong relationships with our clients, and delivering a service that is unsurpassed both regionally and nationally. The merger of our two businesses will consolidate our position and accelerate our growth. The whole BigSpring team is looking forward to this new and exciting future.”
BigSpring has now moved into newly acquired space in the Hallam’s Nottingham city centre offices. The new offices increased their previous floor space, creating room for the continued planned growth of the business.
Mike Hallam, Commercial Director commented “The digital landscape is evolving and our merger will give us real competitive advantage. We are seeing a massive change in how clients work alongside their agency partners, and we are adapting to service them whilst still remaining profitable.”
The new company has recently appointed 2 new digital marketing professionals who will be joining the team shortly, and are currently recruiting for an additional 4 experienced marketing professionals as part of the company’s planned expansion programme.
