Lancaster-based digital marketing firm novi.digital has been shortlisted as a finalist in two different categories in the 2017 E3 Business Awards, which will be held at the Macron Stadium in Bolton on Thursday 13th July 2017.
The company, which uses data to direct and improve SEO, PPC and other digital marketing strategies for businesses across the UK and overseas, was selected from amongst hundreds of nominees as a finalist in the prestigious Employer of the Year category. Managing Director Aaron Crewe is also in the running for Young Entrepreneur of the Year.
Speaking on behalf of the company, he said “To be shortlisted once is an achievement in of itself, to be shortlisted for two is brilliant. We work hard to foster a strong team spirit and make sure everyone in the office has the support they need to do their job, and I’m pleased to see that effort recognised.”
“novi.digital has continued to go from strength to strength, especially so this past year. During this past year, we’ve taken on multiple new team members who’ve helped us push to new heights, and that’s reflected in successes with our clients across the board. We are aware of how increasingly difficult it is to be a finalist and we are pleased to be recognised for this.”
“Each year, it becomes more of an achievement to win a finalist’s place,” said Mubarak Chati, managing director of 1 Events Media, which hosts the E3 Awards. “Every year since we’ve started, we’ve seen an increase in nominations and a corresponding increase in quality. This year, across all seventeen award categories, we’ve seen an increase of around 18% on last year.”
“We’ve had nominations from throughout the North West and we’ve seen real strength in all areas. One of the big surprises has been the number of entries from new businesses, digital, creative and media sectors, women in business and voluntary organisations.
It’s always been a key purpose of the Awards to celebrate the achievement of all parts of the community – not just the mainstream – women, charities and social enterprises coming forward in such numbers is very gratifying indeed.”
“Given the number and the high standard of entries, we certainly gave the Nominations Panel a difficult job. They have risen to the challenge, though, and their final selections represent the very best of the whole North West region. For novi.digital to have been named as a double finalist for 2017 is an achievement of which it should be very proud.”
