UK-based, award-winning digital marketing agency HC Media Group has announced notable expansion after opening its’ first international office in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi; April 2021.
Leading HC Media Groups’ growth, Commercial Director Christopher Clowes, welcomes Charles Waciuma as Business Development Manager and Karen Obote as Digital Account Manager who will both be based out of the new Kenyan office. The two bring 18 years of valuable experience to the business, resulting in being appointed the chosen digital agency for renowned brands Danone, Cow & Gate Baby Milk and Aptamil.
All international staff have received training from the award-winning UK headquarters based in Essex, ensuring the highest of technical standards are maintained in the international delivery of website design, Search Engine Optimisation, PPC advertising and Social Media Management.
‘A major contributing factor to this expansion being possible is the mentoring we’ve received from Big Business Events’
Without Adam Stott and his wider team of business coaches myself and MD Joe Hamilton wouldn’t have the necessary expertise enabling this to become a reality
Christopher Clowes explains: “This is a very exciting time as we find ourselves on a rapid trajectory of growth, all testament to the UK teams’ hard work and dedication to help us achieve our highly ambitious goals – being valued over £1 million within our first year was one of them!
We have our minds set on becoming a global powerhouse over the next decade and this expansion is the first step towards that. Kenya is going through an incredible boom in digital infrastructure but with limited agency numbers and lacking skillsets compared to those in the UK, so we spotted a gap in the market to grab a foothold and push the industry forward.
“A major contributing factor to this expansion being possible is the mentoring we’ve received from Big Business Events. Without Adam Stott and and Big Business Events Coaching, myself and Managing Director Joe Hamilton wouldn’t have the necessary expertise enabling this to become a reality. Thanks to their Gold Circle intensive coaching, we now have an unwavering confidence in our abilities, have developed quick decision-making skills which have propelled us forward from 2 to 14 staff in just over two years, an ability to analyse business risks as well as a commercial mindset to grasp any opportunities that present themselves.”
Big Business Events CEO Adam Stott adds: “As a business mentor, there is no better feeling than when a client is passionate, driven and has an eagerness to learn quickly. It’s fantastic to see the meteoric growth Christopher Clowes and his team have enjoyed to date as a result of proactively implementing all of the sales, marketing and commercial strategies our coaching has equipped them with. It’s exactly this speedy decision-making that has seen HC Media Group propel internationally and drive the business forward in the right way. I look forward to supporting them in achieving their next milestone success!”
HC Media Group also works with Genevia Life Sciences, Motoserv, MS-UK and Royal British Legion, and is currently working plans to open a further office in Geneva in the coming months.
