Alex Hoye CEO of Latitude said of the news "At a time when the marketing industry is in a state of intense change, we are dedicated to accelerating this change with over Pounds Sterling 1m of investment in technology, strong growth in not only our number one-ranked PPC services, but across channels in SEO, display, affiliates and conversion analytics. This is reflected in our recent 10% increase in staffing as we strive to be the employer of choice in the market."

"The fact we have been operating for 8 years and are still amongst the top one hundred fastest growing tech companies, with major new announcements like the BT partnership, also demonstrates the opportunity for innovation in digital marketing through tough economic times, mostly due to its measurability."
