theEword's MD is in the running for Young Entrepreneur of the Year

Thu 18th of November 2010, filed under Media Centre

Al Mackin, MD of theEword, has been shortlisted for the Young Entrepreneur of the Year award in the 2010 Digital Entrepreneur Awards (DEAs).

The only national awards dedicated to internet entrepreneurialism, the DEAs honour some of the internet's biggest success stories; the Young Entrepreneur category recognises industry leaders who have made their mark in the past year.

Al has been commercially optimising websites since he was at university. Later, while working client-side as head of e-commerce for Celltalk PLC, he recognised that there were no specialist search agencies that could build and optimise websites to his own high standards. Therefore, Al joined together with creative director, Tom Glass, in 2006 to form theEword and fill this gap in the market.

Four years later, the company boasts a team of 16 highly experienced professionals, and theEword has developed a strong reputation in the business community for its forward-thinking, and successful, digital marketing campaigns.

Al said: "When we set up theEword, we wanted to create a unique company that operated on the basis of being completely transparent, while providing innovative and successful campaigns for our clients. As theEword has grown, we have remained committed to these principles and to have our achievement recognised through this nomination is just brilliant."

Recognising its position in the industry, theEword was named one of the ten best SEO agencies in the UK in 2009/10. Al was also named in North West Business Insider's North West 42 Under 42 in 2010, and Crain's 40 under 40 in 2009.

Winners of the DEAs will be announced at an award ceremony in Manchester on 1st December 2010.
