The British Excellence in Sales Management (BESMA) Awards are an annual event held by the Institute of Sales Management, with the purpose of recognising and rewarding the most successful companies and individuals in the sales industry. This year, Exeter’s very own Air Marketing Group are delighted to be shortlisted amongst some of the industry’s biggest players!

Recently, #TeamAir took to the bright lights of London to present in front of the BESMA panel. Here they demonstrated the successes that their team have achieved over the past two years due to the hard work, commitment and passion which #TeamAir continue to exhibit.

The Air Marketing Group has been shortlisted for the four following categories: Best Telesales Team, Best Sales Employer, Best Rising Star (Air’s Client Services Director, Marco Alfano-Rogers) and Best Key Account Manager (Air’s Operations Director, Shaun Weston).

Air’s leadership team, including Managing Director Owen Richards, were excited to share the presenting stage with some of the biggest names in the country, including: Yell, Gamma Telecom, McAfee, PWC, Indeed and SSE Electricity Limited.

#TeamAir have found that writing the BESMA Awards has truly allowed them to reflect on how much they have all achieved, not only in the last year but since the company was born less than two years ago. Having started with a modest fund of £25,000 in 2016, the Air Marketing Group first operated out of a boardroom within someone’s office with a grand total of one employee!

Now recognised as one of the fastest growing companies in Exeter, in the last 12 months’ #TeamAir have grown from 11 to over 50 employees and continue to acquire an increasing number of clients, including household brand names. The team currently operate out of two offices in Exeter’s city centre and are soon to be moving into a new office with 100pax capacity.

#TeamAir are extremely proud of their growth and that which they continue to achieve for their clients. Their success is demonstrated by the fact that the team implements telemarketing campaigns that perform at twice the industry average, allowing their clients to achieve an impressive average return of £18 for every £1 they spend.

With a strong sales and leadership team driving them forward, the Air Marketing Group are confident that they will continue to evolve the company and elevate business for their clients. Their office move comes with exciting new internal structures, new areas of expertise and even more possibilities for their clients.

BESMA’s well-deserved winners will be announced on 26th October 2018. Overwhelmed by the recognition their team has already received, winning the BESMA Awards would give reward to #TeamAir’s loyalty and hard work. It’s safe to say #TeamAir have every finger crossed.
