Digital Marketing

Clients being loyal to one firm for a long period of time are rapidly decreasing. Traditionally, especially in the professional services sector, a client would stay loyal to a solicitor firm, for example, as a ‘trusted adviser’ for an entirety, using them for all their needs, whether personal or business, and that same firm would be used down through their family generations.

Director of Cal Partners, Chris Lucarelli, features in this month's Northern Insight magazine. Veronica Swindale, Managing Director of NESMA, interviewed Chris following this year's judging of 'Marketer of the Year' at the North East Marketing Awards.
