Best Use of Search and Account Handler of the Year

Strong performance and commitment to growth. Dedication to going the extra mile and tangible results for clients.

Broadplace Advertising has won two prestigious awards at the annual Wirehive100 Digital Agency Awards; picking up the “Best Use of Search” awards for their holistic search approach across paid, organic, content and social. The company were particularly proud of the Account Handler of the Year award, an individual award that was won by Akash Raval, whose rapid rise through the ranks from apprentice to Key Account Handler is a shining example of how investment in people can pay dividends.

The event was a glittering black tie affair at Mercedes-Benz World, Brooklands. Hosted by comedian Paul Chowdhry, it brought together digital marketing agencies competing for awards in a number of disciplines.

Akash Raval - Account Handler of the Year
Akash Raval started working at Broadplace in 2013 as an Apprentice. He left college and came straight to work. He was quickly promoted to a permanent position as a Digital Account Manager; and then to Key Account Handler for Broadplace.

Ajay Syal, Broadplace MD, notes that “Akash is the perfect example of how great talent can never be held back! Akash joined us completely new to online with no experience whatsoever as an apprentice. It was evident very early on that he had a deep affinity with digital marketing and very quickly completed his apprenticeship and joined broadplace as a fully qualified Google AM. Since then there has been no looking back for Akash. Akash has worked his way up through the teams and now manages our largest Key accounts where he has had a massive impact helping ROI increase for one of our biggest advertisers by 14%. He more than deserves this accolade.”

Judges commented:
“Strong performance and commitment to growth. Dedication to going the extra mile and tangible results for clients.”
“This is a great testament to ‘hard work wins out’ and the benefits are tangible to the business. The trust the business has in his skills again is represented in his rise within the business.”

Broadplace Advertising - Best Use Of Search

This award was won through a successful holistic search campaign that includes all channels of search such as PPC, SEO, Content and also Social Media Marketing.
