Another year, another wrap-up! We’re seeing off 2022 with great optimism for 2023, and despite global challenges this year, we’ve pushed through and seen some great success for the business.
Croud has now grown to 480 global staff members with 115 new employees joining us across the business. We’ve celebrated 62 internal promotions, with many more rolling in! This growth was of course bolstered by the opening of our new office in Dubai as we broke into the MENA market with Croud’s appointment by the Ooredoo Group. This exciting period also saw Croud welcome the wonderful Nisha Patel, as Director of Croud MENA.
We wouldn’t be Croud without our Croudies - and this year we saw a whopping 688 new Croudies join our network! Thanks to the hard work of our internal staff members and Croudies, we’ve continued to see great results for our clients, welcoming new names including Allsaints, Informa, Equifax and Jigsaw to name a few.
For clients old and new, we picked up awards along the way. Our work with Skillshare won Best PPC Campaign in Don't Panic Events' US Search Awards 2022, and we celebrated a triple win at the 2022 dotCOMM awards in three categories where we were named platinum winners. We were also thrilled to have retained our title of Campaign’s UK Performance Agency of the Year and were named Performance Marketing World’s US Performance Agency of the Year.
Our focus on culture has been as strong as ever this year as we celebrated with our annual summer parties. Our Culture Club organised some brilliant initiatives throughout the year, and were proud to be rated number two in Campaign Magazine UK's Best Places to Work 2022: Top 5 large companies list.
Finally, to round off the year we welcomed global social media agency, Born Social to the Croud team! We are so excited to combine forces with such a brilliant team - and we’ll be welcoming them all to our new London office in January!
