Bullas founded Cheshire-based Click Consult in 2003 and quickly established the SEO agency as one the leading agencies of its type outside London, generating pre-tax profit of £1m plus.

However, a combination of increased competition, diversification, search engine updates and significant R&D costs led to a restructure of the agency in 2013. Staff numbers are back to 70 and rising again as the agency – which acquired the Click.co.uk domain and rebranded last year – has focused on organic and paid search services.

The 36-year-old, previously a consumer electronics buyer for Safeway, owns 100% of the company.
