Digital 22 is an agency that develops its clients’ businesses through its inbound, content marketing, results-oriented marketing and sales methodologies with HubSpot technology, primarily in the UK. Before the company became part of Avidly, 47 permanent employees had offices in the UK and Canada.

With prerequisites for achieving global ambition goals

The CEO of Digital 22, Rikki Lear, has no doubt that the merger will open new doors for all parties.

– I’m excited about this acquisition for our team and the increased impact we can have on our customers. Having an additional supply of 200 specialists will increase the depth of expertise and expand the repertoire of services we can offer, said Rikki Lear.

Digital 22 shares Avidly’s values ​​and purpose in creating growth for both its customers and its own business. Global ambition targets also played a role in the acquisition and Digital 22’s mindset fits perfectly into Avidly’s growth strategy.

– Digital 22 has always had global ambitions. We have worked with companies in 13 different countries from our UK office, but by joining Avidly we can take this ambition to the next level, says Rikki Lear.

With Digital 22 in the team, Avidly’s position as a supplier of sales and marketing solutions that supports customers’ businesses will be further strengthened globally. Its avid efforts to strengthen its global position have not gone unnoticed in recent years. HubSpot has named Avidly Global Partner of the Year three times in a row over the previous three years. HubSpot is one of the fastest growing CRM platforms in the world, used by more than 128,000 companies worldwide in more than 120 countries.
