It’s been quite a year for Equal Experts and quite a journey. About the same time five years ago, we were 70 people – today, there are 700 of us across the world.
In 2016, we’ve welcomed several new clients, and contributed further to the success of our existing clients. To help us do it all, we’ve added new offices into our growing family (in Manchester and New York), moved to more spacious digs in Pune and Lisbon, and expanded in London with our second office in Lavington Street. We also had our first taste of Down Under and got our first product sales with our own software, UX Forms. And this is just a sample of everthing that’s happened this last 12 months.
We are very conscious that this kind of growth presents its own set of challenges. And it is really important to us to keep the essence of EE – it’s why we started Equal Experts in the first place. So we are doing everything we can to keep on improving our culture, so people keep feeling they are part of a greater whole.
Now though, it’s time to take stock and be proud. Everyone in the network can be very proud of the value we created for our clients in the last 12 months.
That’s more than enough reason to let our hair down for a seasonal shindig. While our team up north added an element of competition via some ten-pin bowling, in London it seems a pair of reindeer glasses triggered something of a beauty competition… Either way, fun was had, and very much deserved. And globally, we still have a few more Christmas parties to look forward to before wrapping up the year.
Sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed to the success of the EE network this year: employees, associates, clients, alumni and everyone else we worked with at some point or another.
Merry Christmas and happy new year.
– Ryan Sikorsky and Thomas Granier
