Exciting news! we are in at No.54 in the The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 of Britain’s private companies with the fastest-growing overseas sales. https://www.fasttrack.co.uk/company_profile/smyle-2/
This high profile list ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales. This entry compliments Smyle’s recent entry on The Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 at No. 66 published on 2nd December 2018 and their 2018 Agency of the Year win at the EVCOM Awards.
So as to support this growth, we have recruited a new CEO, Keith O’Loughlin, who stepped down as Group CEO of TRO in 2017 having globalised that agency and has a pedigree in agency consulting. Keith will lead us, with Rick Stainton now becoming Group Executive Director overseeing the wider Smyle Group’s growth, focussing on acquisitions, strategic partnerships and client development.
To further develop the board experience and support the strong ambition of the wider Group, David Dewhurst, previously FD at Next Fifteen Communications, also joins the team as Smyle’s Finance Director.
Keith O’Loughlin commented, “It is a privilege to be called upon to lead Smyle through the next chapter of growth, building on the firm foundation of industry leading talent, in an environment that knows the power of great ideas with a world-class client roster and a rich trophy cabinet of awards. We live in a fast-changing world in which it is imperative that agencies adapt to be relevant to meet client needs now and in the future – it is an exciting time for all of us at Smyle and the Group.”
