Cantarus: Year in Review 2019

January 2020 2 min read

Cantarus Team

We can’t believe 2019 is drawing to a close… and what a year it’s been here at Cantarus HQ! This year we’ve been extremely busy with new projects and opportunities, new employees joining the team, networking events, conferences and webinars across the world. We wanted to take the chance to give a massive thanks to our amazing, hardworking team and all our wonderful clients.

We’ve now grown to a 48-strong team (a six-fold increase in just four years!), with 46 of the team based in our Manchester head office, spanning across Technical Delivery, Design, Infrastructure Services, Marketing, Strategic Development, Customer Success, Business Development and Administration. It has been fantastic to see the team growing so rapidly, and with each new member, they bring new skills and expertise to our organisation. One of our co-founders Darrin Addams retired this year, and we have ensured that the business continues to move forward. We appointed two new Principal Consultants, Mark Eichler and James Fear, as well as a new Lead Designer Rob Helsby.

After working with DNN for many years, we qualified as official Umbraco Gold Partners this year. This partnership is really exciting and we’re looking forward to working on more Umbraco projects in 2020. We also ranked at position #24 in Prolific North’s Top 50 Digital Agencies, a jump up 5 positions from last year – no other agency in the list had a lower headcount to ranking position ratio than we did, so that was amazing news for us!

Other highlights from 2019 include partnering with InnovateHer to help promote diversity and attract more women into technical roles within the business, as well as achieving Cyber Essentials Plus certification as part of our ongoing commitment to keeping our clients and data safe and secure. This year we were thrilled to have been shortlisted for several prestigious awards including the Prolific North Tech Awards, memcom Membership Excellence Awards, and The Drum Recommends Digital Awards.

Finally, we have secured many reputable new clients this year, including clients in the USA, France and Switzerland, which is a huge achievement for us and demonstrates Cantarus’ growing global reach.

We’re very much looking forward to finding out what 2020 has in store for us. From everyone here at Cantarus, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
