Summit is a changemaker wherever retail meets digital. Our advice helps you think differently about your business. The technology we develop makes it easy for you to trade and a pleasure for your customers to shop. The online marketing we deliver brings people closer to your business. While we’ll challenge you, excite you and surprise you, above all you’ll find working with us a joy.
We work with some of the UK’s most exciting retailers including Arcadia Group, Argos, Homebase, Selfridges, Made.com and Carpetright. We’re a Magento Gold Partner, Microsoft certified gold partner and we have a retail academy for our passionate staff.
Summit focuses solely on the retail sector, meaning all of our experience and knowledge is tightly focused. This leads us to deliver better results than less specialised marketing and technology companies. In fact, we’re the best placed to help you unlock the unrealised and massive revenue potential of multichannel marketing.
Our 120 staff operate from four locations:
- The headquarters are in purpose built offices in East Yorkshire
- A second office in Yorkshire is home to our affiliate management and social media listening teams
- Our technology development centre is based in Prague
- Our sales and marketing team together with some of our client services team are in our London office
The Summit story
Summit is one of the most extraordinary success stories of the UK’s digital media industry.
We started in 2000 at HMP Wolds with the ambition of providing businesses with highly-effective online marketing services supported by a pioneering training and rehabilitation scheme for prisoners that would lead to employment upon release.
Led by co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Hedley Aylott, the Summit team is completely focused on the online retail sector and has a considerable depth of experience in strategy, marketing and technology.
Summit partners with leading online technology companies to ensure our clients have the best possible technical base to build their business online.
Awards and accreditations
Over the past decade, Summit has been recognised for its excellent work by a number of leading organisations, from New Media Age to The Sunday Times.
Part of the reason for this success is our dedication to training and relevant-accreditations for our team.
Summit is headquartered at Albion Mills near Kingston Upon Hull, East Yorkshire in the United Kingdom, with additional offices in Central London, The Wolds in East Yorkshire and Prague in the Czech Republic.
From these offices, more than a hundred members of the Summit team provide strategy, technology and online marketing expertise for major high street brands such as Argos, Selfridges and Carpetright.
