Chime Agency is officially award-winning

Our inaugural year has been one heck of a wild ride. But the last two months have underlined all we have achieved with four award recognitions across the team.

It began with Rachel Baines, Head of Strategy and Campaigns winning the Digital Women, Leader of the Year followed by Best New Freelancer at the IPSE Awards this autumn.

Team Chime Agency at the IPSE Awards: Claire Hutchings, Hannah Williams, Rachel Baines, Kamila Stopka

The judges commended Rachel on the quality of work she provided her clients and her support of future Freelance talent across the country.

“Freelancing while working with Chime Agency has been my best career move yet. I’ve worked with some incredible clients and feel privileged to make an impact on so many small, independent businesses. Receiving this IPSE award is an honour.”

- Rachel Baines, Chime Agency

This win was extra sweet as Founder, Claire Hutchings won the same award in 2021. It seemed only fitting to pass the mantle on! You can read more about the IPSE awards win here.

Then in November Claire was commended as an Independent Consultant at the Global Women in Marketing Awards.

But 2022 has been topped off wonderfully with Chime Agency taking the top spot as the Women’s Business Awards Best New Business last week.

“Getting shortlisted for awards is amazing. But hearing what clients, colleagues and friends have to say about our fledgling business means the world. I’m so proud of Rachel and the whole team for all they’ve achieved in such a short time. We’ve big plans for 2023 and beyond, getting recognised in these awards gives us a platform to leap from next year. We intend to grasp the opportunity with both hands.”

Here are some of the nice things voters and judges said of Claire and the Chime Agency team in the 2022 Women’s Business Awards…

“Claire and Chime are a fantastic asset to the agency community. They have carved out a niche in a short period of time and focused their energy on being the best they can be. They are an all female team playing in a very heavily male dominated environment.
The passion that the entire team at Chime has for the work they do and the positive feedback they receive from their clients should be more than enough for them to win this award!”

We look forward to building on our successes next year to achieve even more for our clients.
