iCrossing, a global digital marketing company, has announced that it is sponsoring ‘The Outstanding Brightonian’ award at the regional Brighton and Hove Business Awards (BAHBAs), due to take place at the Hilton Brighton Metropole on Friday 26 September.
Last year iCrossing (formerly known as Spannerworks) scooped the award for Business Growth, which acknowledged it as one of the fastest growing businesses in Brighton, with a 90 per cent rise in headcount over the past year. Having been beneficiaries of the award, iCrossing is this year keen to support others in the local business community by sponsoring the event.
Arjo Ghosh, CEO of iCrossing UK, comments: “Winning the BAHBA award last year meant a lot to us, and underlined our belief that Brighton is a great place to do business. It fosters a particular brand of creativity and is a fantastic place for a fast-growing company like ours to flourish at the cutting-edge of the digital marketing revolution.
“We are truly committed to Brighton with a move planned to new offices in January as we continue to grow. The area continues to be a digital media hub in the UK and we are proud to be doing business here. By sponsoring this award, we are pleased to acknowledge the efforts of the talent in Brighton.”
The BAHBAs were established in 2004 to celebrate the wealth of entrepreneurial and creative talent in Brighton and Hove, and to help raise the profile of the city.
