Access has been appointed digital support agency by global tax advisory business Taxand, after a five-way pitch.

The Manchester agency will work alongside Taxand’s in-house design team to provide digital marketing support, build online brand awareness and increase global business development opportunities.

Taxand is the world’s largest global organisation of tax advisors to multinational businesses, with more than 400 partners and over 2,000 advisors in nearly 50 countries.

Jennifer Barham, global business development and marketing manager for Taxand, said the agency had demonstrated “clear expertise” and had a “proven track record of responsive customer service”.

Simon Landi, managing director of Access, added: “We’re excited to be working with another pioneering global company. Taxand provides a professional high quality service that demands agile project management and assured digital execution.

“We’ve already helped them to migrate the website onto a more efficient hosting environment and look forward to adding value on forthcoming projects.”

A member of the Government backed GrowthAccelerator initiative, Access says it is currently enjoying “double digit growth year on year”.
