Pinnacle Internet Marketing Ltd. was formed in 2007 by its two founders, Richard David and Howard Wilkins. Richard had many years experience in the internet world having acted in a consultancy role to many organisations whilst previously being employed by The University of Wales Institute Cardiff. Richard’s background was mathematics and electronics; it only seemed a natural progression when the world wide web was created some 20 years ago.
Howard comes from a traditional marketing background having held marketing and senior management positions in various companies including a traditional media planning and buying agency, as well as companies in the leisure, transport and banking sectors.
These two skill sets formed an alliance which has proved to dovetail extremely well, and the product of this experience has been the development of internet marketing services which are being very well received by Pinnacle’s ever growing client base.
Based in Cardiff, with clients in the UK, Europe and Asia, the team now employs 6 full time and 6 part time employees as well as a team of associates to take on any overspill. In 2009, Pinnacle Internet Marketing Ltd. acquired Web Hosting UK Ltd. and Domain Registration Services Ltd. which are in the process of being merged. Trading under Com Webhosting, the Company now boasts a client base of nearly 3,500 clients. Pinnacle has also developed the Swiftsender (email marketing) brand to add to its portfolio and most recently has acquired the Topshopper (e-commerce) brand. To add to its skill sets, the Company now boasts the acquisition and introduction of 1st Plus Web Design, completing a rather powerful mix.
Pinnacle’s growth can be attributed to an ideology that embraces honesty and transparency, providing services with integrity whilst providing excellent value for money.
