Susan Hallam MBE

Nottingham-based digital marketing expert Susan Hallam MBE of Hallam Internet was last Friday named one of the ten most inspirational independent agency leaders internationally as published by national industry body The Drum, acknowledging Susan’s results in digital marketing consultancy.

This recognises Susan’s 30 years of valuable contributions to the field. Highlights of her career include advocating digital transformation for businesses nationally and internationally and championing digital skills programmes for students and young business people. Susan’s entrepreneurial drive and passion for helping businesses thrive online is visible in the phenomenal growth of the digital marketing agency that she founded in 1999, Hallam Internet.

Starting as a one-man band, the company now has 60 experts delivering high quality digital services such as SEO, PPC, web design and digital PR to local, national and international brands. Remarkable account wins include The United Nations, Suzuki and Speedo, who trust Hallam Internet to transform the way they market themselves online.

The ambitious agency’s rise to the top of the industry is supported by multiple award wins. Noteworthy is the recent Grand Prix Best Agency Award win at the Drum Recommends Awards, an accolade based solely on client reviews. Hallam Internet’s specialists will attend the Google Premier Partner Awards in Dublin on 16th October. They have been nominated for second year in a row among Google’s best Premier Partner agencies in the EMEA region.

Susan Hallam commented: “It is a privilege to be named alongside such influentials leaders and aspirational agencies, and it is confirmation of how far Hallam Internet has come over nearly twenty years of helping clients use the internet to be more successful in the digital world.”

“We have grown from being one of the most recognised agencies in the East Midlands to being a leading national digital marketing agency. My thanks to Team Hallam and our clients for their continued support, and Peter Czapp for including me in his list.”
