Smyle announces new client wins

Smyle Group has revealed a series of new business wins including EDF Energy, Rolls-Royce, ITV and Hitachi, and is expecting to record a turnover of more than £15m for 2016.

The agency, which took home the UK Agency of the Year accolade at this year’s C&IT awards, has also made significant investments in its team, appointing 14 new staff in the past three months.

The new hires are in line with the agency’s continued focus on its clients to develop deeper strategic relationships.

Director Matt Margetson, said: "Client Servicing is more than a function of our business. It’s a commitment to do truly outstanding work for our customers. We have employed more dedicated team members looking after more strategic based relationships, as well as more talent across all our service lines. The aim of this is to develop our relationships with clients and understand their business and ambitions, enabling us to deliver brilliant work for them."
