We’ve been shortlisted for the BESMA Awards 2018

The British Excellence in Sales Management (BESMA) Awards are an annual event held by the Institute of Sales Management. With the purpose to recognise and reward the most successful companies and individuals in the sales industry.

We’re delighted to be shortlisted amongst some of the industry’s biggest players …

This time last week #TeamAir took to the bright lights of London to present in front of the BESMA panel. We demonstrated the success we’ve achieved over the past 2 years and how this has been made possible due to the hard work, commitment and passion our team continue to exhibit.

We’ve been shortlisted for the four following categories:

Best Telesales Team

Best Sales Employer

Best Rising Star – Marco Alfano-Rogers

Best Key Account Manager – Shaun Weston

We were excited to share the presenting stage with some of the biggest names in the country, companies which include:

Yell, Gamma Telecom, McAfee, PwC, Indeed and SSE Electricity Limited.

Reflecting on our growth …

Writing the BESMA Awards have truly allowed us to reflect on how much we’ve all achieved, not only in the last year but since our inception.

Having started with a modest fund of £25,000 in 2016, we first operated out of a boardroom within someone’s office with a total of 1 employee!

Now recognised as the fastest growing companies in Exeter, in the last 12 months’ #TeamAir have grown from 11 to over 50 employees and continue to acquire an increasing number of clients, and household brand names. We are currently operating out of two offices in Exeter’s city center and are soon to be moving into a new office with 100pax capacity.

We are extremely proud of our own growth and the growth we continue to achieve for our clients’. Our success is measured by the fact our team implements telemarketing campaigns that perform at twice the industry average. This allows our clients to achieve an average return of £18 for every £1 they spend with us.

What’s next …

With a strong team driving us forward we are confident that we will continue to evolve our company and elevate business for our clients.

Our office move comes with exciting new internal structures, new areas of expertise and even more possibilities for our clients.

BESMA’s well-deserved winners will be announced on 26th October 2018. Overwhelmed by the recognition our team has already received, winning the BESMA Awards would give solidarity to our team’s loyalty and hard work. It’s safe to say #TeamAir have every finger crossed.

We’re thrilled to be named Most Outstanding Business

We were absolutely thrilled to have been recognised in the Express and Echo Business Awards, winning one of the three awards that we had been shortlisted for, in the category of Business Growth of the Year (over 25 staff). On top of this, we were then overjoyed to hear that a surprise award for Outstanding Business of the Year, was also awarded to us, ahead of the other amazing category winners on the night.

We have achieved a huge amount since our launch in 2016, growing to a team of 40 people within 2 years and working with clients such as Funding Circle, Crowdcube and GoCardless.

Owen Richards, our Managing Director said, “We put great emphasis on the importance of our people, who play such an important part in everything that we achieve. We’re proud to be recognised within the Exeter business community, and without the whole team effort we simply wouldn’t have grown at the speed and scale we have, with more growth predicted again this year.”

Celebrating business success together

It’s that time again. The Express & Echo Business Awards are back for 2018, celebrating business success and giving businesses in Exeter and the surrounding areas the recognition they deserve.

Within the Best New Start Up Business category of this year’s awards are both Air Marketing Group and Grow Marketing Ltd. Both Grow and Air are still relatively new to the Exeter business scene, however, they have both made huge impacts on the local marketplace and have worked with each other for almost a year now.

Air Marketing Group was started in March 2016 by Managing Director Owen Richards and, in the two years since, Air has grown from 1 person to a team of 40 staff, boasting a strong, varied and retained client base including brands such as Crowdcube and Funding Circle. Air has worked hard to help boost Exeter’s economy, create careers within the city, and has partnered with both St Petrocks and Balloons Charity for 2018, having donated a total of £1,111.06 so far to these charities.

Grow Marketing Ltd have been trading for less than a year and have centred their entire ethos and business approach around being relentlessly positive and adding value to the local economy. This has set them apart from many other media sources and created a real ‘feel-good’ movement within the local and regional business community. In less than a year, they have pioneered meaningful initiatives (such as the ‘100 Most Influential Women of 2018), attracted support and funding from key local stakeholders and also formed key commercial partnerships with many local businesses and organisations. With some truly exciting projects and partnerships in the pipeline (watch this space), the team at Grow are looking to the future with great positivity and determination.

Both #TeamAir and #TeamGrow look forward to seeing many of you at the Express and Echo Business Awards and, whoever wins, both organisations will be moving into the rest of the year with a spring in their steps and a smile on their faces.

We’ve been shortlisted for the Express and Echo Business Awards 2018

We are delighted to be shortlisted for three categories of the Express and Echo Business Awards.

Featuring in the categories of:

  • Best New Start-up Business
  • Business Growth of the Year 26+ employees
  • Owen Richards, our MD, is up for Entrepreneur of the Year

2017 has been a fantastic year for us, having achieved a 357% growth in revenue compared to the first year of trading and increasing the staff base from 11 team members to now nearly 40. This simply couldn’t be achieved without the hard work of the whole team and the vision of Owen, our Managing Director, leading the business.

Winning an award to recognise this hard work, would mean the world to Team Air – so everyone’s keeping their fingers firmly crossed.
