CRM agency Amaze One, a collaboration between St Ives Group-owned Occam and Amaze, has significantly expanded its team in response to the rapid growth of the agency. Many of the hires are graduates, counteracting a perceived lack of young talent in the industry.

Following a strong first six months of the year, Amaze One has strengthened its creative, communications and client services departments to manage an expanding portfolio of clients including Car Giant, Lookers and Bosch. All employees work across its three sites in London, Manchester and Bristol.

The in-house communications team has benefitted from five new team members including planning manager Laura Chapman and project implementation manager Claire Chetwynd, who joined from Ethicall and John Crane respectively. They will be instrumental in providing insight-driven creative communications and out of the ordinary CRM campaigns for brands.

Meanwhile, Thomas Ross, previously at The Real Adventure, and Matt Healy, previously at EMO, have joined to bolster the client services team. The creative team has also introduced two new designers, Nick Seville and Cameron Scott, to ensure clients continue to receive unrivalled service.

Amaze One was launched to break down the inherent silos of traditional CRM processes in response to client demand for a different way of working, turning each aspect of every customer interaction into information that creates value for consumers and clients’ businesses alike.

Neil Evans, Managing Director at Amaze One, said: “The incredible growth we’ve experienced highlights the appetite clients have for our unique approach to CRM. All our new recruits are outstanding practitioners with individual industry insight and a wealth of experience that our clients can draw on. It’s great that we can invest in and support their development from graduates to true industry experts. Their skills are a perfect fit for our growing client base, and they bring fresh enthusiasm and energy to Amaze One. This will prove vital as we continue to grow and deliver outstanding work to our clients.”
