When I reflect back on what has been achieved at Adgistics during 2013, I can best summarise it as a year of great change, continued growth and rapid development! I am very proud of what we have achieved and very appreciative of all the hard work put in by our team. I truly believe a company's greatest strength is its people, and of equal importance is the company culture they create. We continually recognise and appreciate that it is the collective strength of our company that makes the greatest difference, and not any one individual. Our team and the culture we foster underpin all the good work that we do, and will continue to do so in the future.
One of our most significant achievements in 2013 has been the extension of our 'brand footprint' through the creation of our North American office in Chicago. This has brought the benefits of the Adgistics offer to a greater number of brands as well as generating many new opportunities for our current and prospective new staff.
Other notable achievements and outcomes accomplished by Adgistics this year include:
- Increased sales revenue by approx. 25%
- Increased sales portfolio by 30%, with a growing presence in new territories
- R&D advances in our technology
- Installation and operational 'roll-out' of a new data hosting centre in Frankfurt
- Increased headcount by 35%
It has been a busy and productive year at Adgistics, with plenty of opportunities to spend time with our clients and each other to build the strong relationships that make for effective business.
I thank you all for your support and passion. Our impact and continued success are dependent upon our team, our clients and partners and we look forward to continuing to grow these successful relationships in the year ahead.
I wish you all a happy holiday season.
Joe Jarrett, Adgistics CEO
