“I’m proud and excited to take up the challenge of leading Hallam into the future. As the world evolves, so has our agency. We’ve changed a lot over the last few years, adding new services and areas of expertise, to create a new, unified and powerful offer for our clients. Together with our talented team, we’re ready to tackle the future, and help our clients thrive in what’s going to be an uncertain but interesting time to do business. Susan has grown this business significantly in 20 years, and I’m looking forward to using her knowledge as we continue to push the company forward. Not just as a world-class digital and data agency, but also as the best place to work in a city as vibrant and thriving as Nottingham.”

“I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity to step up and lead Hallam as Managing Director. I know how talented our great team is and it’s largely thanks to them and the opportunities they have afforded me that I feel prepared for this role. I’m lucky to work with such inspiring people day in, day out. I’m also grateful to Susan Hallam, who has done an incredible job at the helm. We have some big shoes to fill, but with our solid team and dynamic product offerings, I’m confident we will take the successful company she founded to the next level.”

“The last 20 years have been an incredible journey and looking back at how the agency has grown since 2000 to what it is now fills me with immense pride. This change has been in the pipeline for a while now and I’m thrilled to see Julio and Jake, who have been integral colleagues to me in recent years, step up into these new roles. Hallam has showcased transformational results and won incredible awards for its work over the years to become a real force in the digital marketing scene and I’m excited to see it continue to grow under their guidance.”
