All of these locations, and every one of our 110 employees, contributed to an annual turnover of £35m in 2011.
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.
