Modern, which is a Bristol-based B2B digital marketing firm, says it has more than doubled its team since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The agency’s growth also saw it included in the Top 60 of B2B Marketing’s 2021 UK Agencies Benchmarking Report.

It’s been highlighted as the number 1 rising star marcomms agency and 9th fastest growing agency nationally.

Modern’s Co-Founder, Stuart Ray, comments: “Since February last year, we’ve taken on new international technology clients such as SoftwareAG. In addition to this, we have expanded our services with existing clients such as Gamma Telecom and Roland DG and been flexible to their demands in the ever-changing state of the market.”

Nicola Ray, CEO & Founder adds: “The last 12 months has taught us that having a talented, committed team, with a clear vision of what we’re trying to achieve as an agency is paramount.

“During the pandemic, we have doubled the size of our team from 11 to 23. We’ve adapted our hiring, our onboarding, our systems and structures, and we’ve had some stellar new additions to the team. But during a year of constant flux, our purpose and values as an agency have remained the same.

“After a year where many people in the industry have had time to reflect on what they want from a career, I think the most successful agencies moving forwards will be those that put their people and passions before bottom line figures.”
