Back in summer 2001. James (Founder & CEO) and Alistair (Strategic Advisor) met while leading the creative and technical teams for a fast growing telecoms group. They soon recognised each other’s talent and vision for building digital products.
2002 - 2004
From 2002 to 2004 they collaborated on several ventures. This was the wild west of the internet. Anything seemed possible in this entrepreneurial age. They enjoyed the successes but James’ passion to build a leading digital agency in the South West was never far from his mind.
In 2005 the guys started exploring how a digital agency should look and operate. James spent almost 2 years working as a freelance creative within multiple agencies across the UK - understanding what worked, what didn’t, and where the opportunities lay.
At the start of 2007 James decided the agency was ready to be hatched. First challenge - find a likeminded technical genius. The solutions clients needed had to be built on an easy to use yet extremely powerful development platform - one that didn’t yet exist. James met Guy (Managing Director) while working as a project consultant. James knew instantly that Guy had the skills, drive and personal qualities to help him create and shape the agency.
In January 2008 Evosite moved into its first tiny office and made its first hire. 18 months later the agency had grown to 6 and had over 100 SME clients.
2009 - 2012
From 2009 to 2012 turnover doubled every year and the team became 20-strong. We won multiple national accounts and even attracted the eye of a Deborah Meaden from Dragons’ Den. We moved to multiple offices to keep up with the growth of the agency over this period.
2013 - 2015
Since then we’ve diversified into new service offerings such as Optimisation and Search and over 700 web solutions are powered by our bespoke enterprise software. We’ve worked with over 300 UK businesses including leading brands such as Flogas, Your Move, Apetito, TUI Travel and Laura Ashley as well as won awards for the rapid growth of our agency.
As we mark Evosite’s official 9th birthday with our passionate and talented team of 25, the future looks very bright. We’re still excited about the future, just as we were in the early 2000s; and still driven by the challenge of applying digital technology to generate the highest ROI for our existing and growing client base.
