Charles Gould, Managing Director said:
"We have double cause for celebration at Brightwave this year. Not only have we maintained the level of growth we enjoyed last year, but we’ve attracted a significant amount of business from exciting new clients including Tesco, BP and Lloyds Banking Group, among others. The icing on the cake is our move into a superb new office space which we've designed to be a fantastic place for the team to work, as well as being a perfect environment in which to welcome clients".
Investment in talent has been a key element of Brightwave's performance this year, with the number of permanent staff increasing by more than 20.
Director of Talent, Alison Mitchell-Innes, said:
"Developing the next generation of talent is high on the agenda at Brightwave to support our current growth and future ambitions. As well as strengthening our existing expertise, key appointments have also been made in senior management positions within sales and production, which will further support our strategic plans".
Two senior appointments Sales Director and Production Director have been made through promotion from within.
