Strategy Internet Marketing has reached 40 members of staff on the payroll for the first time.

New client manager Holly Hayman brought the company’s number of employees up to 40 when she joined Strategy this month.

Holly, 22, previously worked as a client manager at Yell. She is a graduate of Bath Spa University where she studied English Literature and Creative Writing.

She says: “Strategy is such a fast-growing company I am surprised they noticed, but the firm has an amazing eye for detail in everything it does so I should have known.

“I am so pleased to have won a position at this fantastic company. It is such an exciting place to work and I have never known such a dedicated attitude to customer service. I am extremely proud to work here and honoured to be the 40th member on the team.”

Strategy Executive Chairman John Courtney presented Holly with a bottle of champagne and said: ”Holly is a brilliant new appointment and we’re so proud she has brought our numbers up to 40.

“We have doubled in size each year for the last three years, and I suppose it won’t be long when it will be impossible for me to remember everyone’s first name, which is a little daunting.

“Our numbers make us a major player in the SEO sector and we are the biggest agency in the west of England by some margin. You need a big team to do this work effectively and we’re so pleased more and more companies realise this.”
