Welcoming Chelsea Spencer as the agency’s first Marketing Manager, the addition enables SO Marketing to offer a wider range of services to clients throughout every stage of their marketing journey.
James Aberley, Senior Partner said, "2020 marks our 15th year in business and of course, a very difficult year for many companies across the UK. We are very proud that during our 2019/20 financial year, we have seen continued award success, consistent growth across our key target clients and have been able to support businesses of all kinds to adapt to new ways of online marketing especially during these difficult times. We have great plans for our next year including further creation of employment from our Staffordshire base, as well as offering new and exciting content creation services to clients old and new."
