We’re really proud to announce that Sam Hendy has joined the team full-time as Digital Executive following the completion of his marketing degree at Plymouth University.

Little did we know that 7 years ago, when a 15 year old Year 10 pupil from Devonport High School for Boys in Plymouth walked through the door for a week’s work experience, that it would be the beginning of an exciting new career…

5 years later Sam got in touch to come back to Fuel for his year placement as part of his degree and we gladly welcomed him back. Throughout that time, Sam developed his skills as a team player and marketer with a positive attitude to learning.

Following on from his placement year, Sam stayed at Fuel, on a part-time basis, alongside his final year. He has developed a real strength in digital marketing and has played an integral part in numerous campaigns fuelling demand for clients.

Sam explained: “Although it seems like ages ago I can still clearly recall what a positive experience I had that week and it really switched me on to a career in marketing. I’m delighted to officially be part of a great team.”

Martyn King, managing director at Fuel, said: “Huge credit to Sam for all of his hard work which has led to this thoroughly deserved appointment. It has been a pleasure to see him grow into a talented young marketer who is popular with both clients and colleagues. We’re proud that he has decided to start his career with us and we look forward to continuing to support his tremendous potential in the future.”

Sam’s appointment comes at a time of sustained growth for Fuel which has seen the agency grow its revenues by 70% over the past 3 years and secure Google Partner agency status.
