Avidly Plc's Board of Directors has approved the new strategy for company. Avidly is heading for strong growth both organically and through acquisitions.
“More than ever Avidly is a growth company. In addition to our rapid internationalisation, we want to be a pioneer of digitalisation in our field of business”, says Jyrki Vaittinen, CEO of Avidly.
The new strategy rests on two strong pillars:
1) Avidly aims to substantially grow its services based on HubSpot technology both organically and by means of acquisitions on existing markets (Finland, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark), and by expanding into selected regions, mainly within Europe.
2) In Finland, Avidly continues its organic growth as a marketing agency offering a comprehensive range of services and serving customers throughout the country. The company focuses on offering continuous, comprehensive marketing services to medium-sized companies and individual marketing services to large enterprises.
The company’s business will be divided into these two business areas and reporting segments.
