Adestra is celebrating its tenth birthday this month. The company, which was started by Steve Denner and Henry Hyder-Smith in 2004, has grown year-on-year over the past decade, while remaining profitable each year, with turnover reaching in excess of five million at the end of the last financial year.

It has accomplished a number of milestones during its 10 year history, most recently expanding into the North American market with the launch of a Dallas, Texas office.

Adestra now employs a team of 83 experts across the UK and US, spanning 14 departments and supporting more than 410 clients, an increase of 105 per cent over the last five years.

Since its inception, when there were just eight members of full time staff working from the company’s headquarters in Oxford, Adestra’s proposition has also expanded and now includes email, automation, social and mobile marketing technologies. The breadth of services and expertise on offer enables clients to deliver cutting-edge campaigns that produce tangible results.

Adestra works with businesses from a range of different sectors, such as financial services and publishing and media, and includes organisations such as Oxford University Press and Intent Media, both of which have been proudly working with the company for the duration of its tenure.

Steve Denner, COO and co-founder of Adestra, comments:

“As a company, we are immensely proud of our many accomplishments over the last decade and to have developed such a high-calibre portfolio of successful clients. Our ambitions know no bounds and we have big plans for Adestra over the next 10 years, with continued expansion in North America and other global markets being a key focal point.”

Ben Coney, Web Marketing Operations Manager for Global Academic Business, Oxford University Press (OUP), comments:

“Throughout our long and fruitful relationship with Adestra, the company has always delivered an excellent level of quality technical support and consultancy, while at the same time maintaining a personal approach to business, which has been key to our trusted and longstanding relationship.”

Henry-Hyder-Smith, CEO and co-founder of Adestra, comments:

“Adestra was founded on the principle that marketing success takes more than technology and, to this day, the company puts high quality consultancy front and centre to provide software and a service. We pride ourselves on our team which consists of some of the marketing industry’s top talent, who provide an unrivalled level of service to clients.”
