One of Yorkshire’s longest established marketing agencies, Sowden & Sowden, shortlisted for People in Business Award

The East Yorkshire-based agency has been nominated for the Team Impact (>11 people) Award, which recognises teams that play an instrumental role within the business and continually exceed expectations.

Set to be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Hull, the Sowdens team must wait until the event on Friday 30 June to learn whether they have won the PIB award.

Sowdens have hit a fine streak with awards in 2023, having recently been shortlisted for Best Small Digital Agency of the Year at the Northern Digital Awards.

An agency that has continually exceeded client expectations

Now in its fourth year, the PIB Awards showcase progressive and inspiring businesses that stay ahead of the curve and work together to deliver projects of the highest quality, as well as a strong revenue and results. Sowden & Sowden has been acknowledged for supporting and sharing PIB’s vision – to raise the profile of talented, hardworking and dynamic individuals in the region.

On behalf of their clients, Sowdens has achieved incredible results. Whether it’s generating millions of pounds in student fees or securing record-breaking online sales on a tight budget, the team has made a game-changing impact for its clients across a range of sectors and services.

In the build-up to achieving its ambitious targets, the agency has also expanded its digital team, allowing it to strengthen its overall offer and sustained commitment to staff development, as well as further build on its approach to digital best practice.

Making a positive contribution to the industry for 40 years

Currently celebrating its 40th year in business, Sowdens has proven that life begins at 40, continuously exceeding expectations and overcoming business challenges. By deploying insight and intelligence, inventive ideas and an innovative approach, the agency has grown financially to secure a healthy bottom line – key information that led to a well-deserved nomination for the Team Impact (>11 people) Award.

Co-owner and Director, Polly Sowden, believes winning a PIB Award would be well deserved: “It’s incredible to think that we’re celebrating our 40th year in business. Our team are, and have always been, the driving force behind our success and our biggest investment. Our philosophy has always been to deliver the highest ROI and make our clients stand out through creativity backed up by intelligent strategy, and I’m proud to see this spirit alive and well at our agency.”
