Last Thursday (March 7th), Air Marketing Group turned three years old. And what a three years it has been! From day one, we have been an ambitious company but looking back, we never could have anticipated the success we have been lucky enough to achieve. We’ve grown beyond expectations, worked with amazing household names, been nominated for national awards (BESMA and Amazon Growing Business) and won local awards (Express and Echo). At Air, we have one big force driving our success, our team.
Team Air are driven, dedicated, fun and absolutely the root of our success. They tirelessly work for our clients, undertaking in-depth training sessions, seeking feedback, visit our clients on location and basically becoming an extension of their team. There is never a dull moment in our office. Whether we’re celebrating an impressive set of weekly leads, taking part in brilliant buzz meetings or generally having a well-deserved laugh, there’s always something inspiring Team Air to push forwards. On our birthday you can bet there was a massive cake and a delicious party feast!
Team Air have supported the business from the get go and been involved in our growth from a team of 4 to now over 60! From working out of a boardroom, to three office moves, a major on-boarding of new talent, the establishing of our sister company, Roots to Market, and much more, they have always been our greatest cheerleaders. What an amazing way to recognise the hard work and journey of Team Air, than with our win at the Exeter Living Awards last week. Third time lucky, on our third birthday, in the third month it of the year – it seems 3 is our lucky number!
For Team Air, it means a lot to be listed as a finalist and to win an Exeter Living Award. It feels so fantastic to have our hard work recognised by our business peers. When our MD, Owen, moved back to the UK from Australia and brought the idea of Air with him, he soon discovered that Exeter would be a great place to base his company. It is a dynamic city that has so much untapped potential. Owen knew that there was talent in the city and that it afforded him with the opportunity to start a company with an engaging big city culture, in Devon where there was a better work life balance.
Since starting we have created over 60 jobs in the local community, established two new local businesses, brought business from all over the country and as far a field as Bermuda, given thousands to local charities and we aren’t looking to slow down anytime soon. It’s safe to say that we raised a few glasses of fizz at the awards night, here’s to the future of Team Air!
“What an amazing way to celebrate a wonderful growth year, for us. Our local community is important to us, so it’s great to be recognised locally by our peers. Congratulations must also go to the other finalists in our category; we were up against some amazing companies.” – Owen Richards, Managing Director
