Smyle reports that its predicted turnover of £11m is a result of capitalising on a number of investments made over the last six months, including a refined approach to client services, the acquisition of Pumphouse Productions and the significant new account wins.

The agency has also developed a broader client mix assisted by growth across key existing clients and a number of new customers across the media, telco and financial sectors, including Google, HP and EY.  

Rick Stainton, Smyle Group’s managing director, said: "This momentum in the first half of 2015 has simply come down to the commitment and hard work from every member of every department in the company – they are delivering industry-leading creative solutions, as well as progressive internal improvements in process, culture and the way in which we look after our new and existing clients.

"The resultant growth matches the objectives outlined in our three-year plan initiated in 2014, aimed at the business developing quality, strategic and long-term customer relationships with the best expertise available in the industry, across our live events and video services."
