London, UK: Today, after a hugely successful few years, Inbound FinTech (IFT) announced it has reached the elite tier of HubSpot’s Solutions Partner Program and is now officially an elite HubSpot solutions partner. Since forming in 2016, and joining the HubSpot Partner Program in 2017, the agency has enjoyed rapid growth.
HubSpot, a leading CRM platform for scaling companies, works hand-in-hand with partner experts to grow their businesses through inbound software, services and support.
The Solutions Partner Program is an ecosystem of experts that offer marketing, sales, customer service, web design, CRM and IT services. It’s a global community that believes putting customers first is the key to growth, and enables its members to offer a wide breadth of more sophisticated solutions across the entire customer experience.
To achieve status as an elite tier solutions partner, partners must meet the top required level of MRR (monthly recurring revenue) and be fully HubSpot certified. But the elite tier is still invite-only.
After reaching gold status at the end of 2017, platinum in 2018 and diamond in 2020, and winning multiple HubSpot Impact Awards along the way, IFT made it to the elite level in Q1 of 2022, meaning the agency's steep climb to HubSpot’s top tier took just over 4 years - one of the fastest agencies to reach this status.
The elite tier represents the top 1% of HubSpot agencies and there are thousands of agencies across the globe. Elite agencies are not only operating at the highest level, they’re able to effectively manage and support a large number of businesses and maintain strong client relationships.
Elite partners also have the full range of HubSpot certifications and accreditations, meaning having a team of specialists with the required expertise and knowledge of all the key disciplines, techniques and tools within the CRM, to help clients maximise their use of the platform and its products.
The Solutions Partner Program strengthens the HubSpot ecosystem, whilst recognising the successes and achievements of its partners, as they drive growth for a variety of businesses through HubSpot’s world-renowned inbound methodology and comprehensive CRM platform.
This is a big achievement for an agency like Inbound FinTech, which was only formed 6 years ago and predominantly operates in the Financial Services space. Over the past year, Inbound FinTech has grown its business by incorporating inbound strategies to attract, engage, and delight customers.
The success comes from displaying strong leadership, building a culture of inclusion, flexibility and development, recruiting top talent and individuals who fit the IFT culture and values, plus dedication, hard work and going above and beyond to meet specific client needs.
"We’re delighted to welcome Inbound FinTech to the elite tier,” said Brian Garvey, VP of the Solutions Partner Program at HubSpot. “This achievement is a reflection of the agency’s ambition, innovation and dedication to delivering the best possible results for clients with HubSpot. I’m excited to see what’s in store for IFT in the future.”
In a tough couple of years for business during the global pandemic, the agency has used its hybrid and agile approach to support the needs of its clients. To continue to achieve fast growth in an uncertain time is a testament to the resilience of the team.
Maria Milea, Managing Director at Inbound FinTech, expressed her feelings about the achievement: “We’re extremely proud to become an elite HubSpot solutions partner. Getting this far has been a sustained team effort and we’re delighted to achieve yet another big milestone and goal for Inbound FinTech. Watch this space!”
Conor Higgins, Senior Channel Account Manager at HubSpot, spoke about Inbound FinTech’s latest milestone of reaching the elite tier: “This is a significant and well-deserved milestone for IFT and I am looking forward to seeing what comes next, onwards and upwards. It's been such a pleasure to work with this amazing team who are fast becoming one of HubSpot's top solutions partners globally."
It’s been a fast rise for the UK agency and Lisa Kelly, Principal Partner Success Manager at HubSpot, praised the efforts and achievements of Inbound FinTech, saying: “Inbound FinTech has been an exceptional partner since joining the program in 2017. As leaders in strategic consultancy and execution, they have also demonstrated strong expertise across the entire CRM suite. They have won multiple HubSpot awards over the years for their significant impact across their client base and I’m delighted to see them reach this new milestone of the elite tier, which represents our top partners globally. They absolutely deserve this recognition for their continued commitment to quality and their focus on client success.”
Becoming an elite partner means deeper roots and influence in the HubSpot community and Sheila Mitham, CEO at Inbound FinTech, spoke about what it means to join the top tier: “We’re thrilled to reach this significant milestone with HubSpot and join the top 1% elite partners globally. We’ve truly grown and scaled alongside HubSpot, and look forward to serving more Financial Services clients with our suite of digital services in the future.”
