Australia-born Andrew Burgess set up digital marketing agency EquiMedia with his wife in 2000. Within six months, they’d hired a team of five and had signed up two big clients: Breakingviews.com and Western Provident Association. Today, the Swindon-based firm has 23 customers on its books, ranging from insurance company Sheilas’ Wheels to organic food company Abel & Cole. "Businesses are much more digital-savvy these days," says 48-year-old Burgess. "Five years ago, no one had heard of brands such as Google." Sales at EquiMedia have risen 55 per cent over the past four years from £4.2m in 2004 to £15.7m in 2007. www.equimedia.co.uk
