We are thrilled to say that we have secured our US Head Office space in Florida. The office will be crucial to our international expansion plans that are currently underway. We already support multiple businesses in the US through our Discover and Succeed services. This is our next step to establishing our presence.
This month we visited our new office space in the Workbar, Boston. We already support multiple businesses in the US through our Discover and Succeed services, but this is our next step for moving into the American market.
Throughout 2019 we have been growing at an exponential rate, most recently recruiting five new team members to aid the expansion of Hudson and our sister companies.
With this extra support, now is the perfect time to expand our horizons and increase our presence in an international market.
Our team of Bid Writers, Bid Managers and Coordinators hold decades of collective experience writing and winning work for clients across multiple sectors. They have worked with global businesses previously, but this is the first time our Hudson Succeed team will be able to offer bid writing services with a base in Boston.
As with most bid writing consultancies, we are able to work remotely to support our clients in most cases. Our team use methods such as Skype and e-mail to liaise with clients of our Succeed service. However, we do recognise the importance of a personal connection, especially for businesses with more complex requirements. When necessary, we will meet with new clients face-to-face to discuss the support that will be required. Our base in Boston will allow us to continue this level of service on an international scale.
“We are thrilled to have secured our Boston base. We are already working with clients on a global scale in the US, South Africa, Italy, Hong Kong, Hungary and Poland but this base will allow us to centralise our international presence.” – John Hudson.
Initially, our plan was to make this step in 2020. However, due to the pandemic and restrictions on travel, our international expansion had to be paused.
Throughout 2020, we have been growing at an exponential rate. Even amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, our team continued to persevere and support a record number of new clients. Our Hudson Succeed client base grew by 161% during this time. This meant we needed more hands on deck to ensure the exceptional level of service our clients expect from Hudson.
We welcomed 13 more team members from July 2020 to January 2021 and we’re continuing to recruit more talented individuals. With this extra support and the promising recovery from the pandemic, now is the perfect time to expand our horizons.
Recently, we announced the exciting news that we had reached a huge milestone in our international plans. Through our Succeed and Discover divisions, we reached clients in 18 countries across the globe.
Based in the North East of England, Hudson began with a small, yet ambitious, team. Our clients now stretch from the UK to 10 other European countries and from Russia to the Caribbean.
In our Hudson Succeed division, our team has supported over 700 businesses, globally, with their tendering efforts. Our Bid Writers hold an 87% success rate and help clients ranging from healthcare providers to construction and technology companies.
I am delighted to see our Group reaching so many different countries. Our goal is ultimately to help businesses grow far and wide, reaching their full potential. Now we’re able to help many more organisations achieve this around the world.”
As with most bid writing consultancies, we are able to work remotely to support our clients in most cases. This was the way we normally worked prior to social distancing rules. Our team communicates with clients via Zoom, e-mails and phone calls regularly. They ensure that every client is kept up to date with the progress of their bid. However, we do recognise the importance of personal connections and how crucial this will be when Covid restrictions are lifted. This is especially the case when it comes to working on important bids for high-value contracts.
In September 2020, as we prepared to establish ourselves in the US, we welcomed Global Bid Director, Beverley Park. The main focus of Beverley’s role is to implement our growth strategy for Hudson Succeed in the US. This will see us expand into Florida, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Whilst implementing this, Beverley will also be working to significantly grow our operations in the UK, strengthening our delivery capabilities.
Beverley joined the team with over 15-years of business development experience. During this time, Beverley has supported a range of organisations from micro-businesses to SMEs and large corporations.
Most recently, Beverley worked for an American owned outsourcing company with 26,000 staff. Her role required setting up and managing their UK bid division with multiple teams, nationwide reporting to her.
Beverley’s bidding experience ranges from managing bids with values from £10,000 to complex multi-million-pound opportunities.
With Beverley on board, we are now implementing the next phase of our international expansion, beginning with our Florida HQ.
I’m so happy to have this opportunity at Hudson, the opportunity to grow and expand not only the Hudson Group, but also our client’s businesses is really exciting. I’m excited to grow the Succeed division across the UK and into America.”
The next stage of our expansion has already begun, with the development of our US-focused website. Later this year, when travel restrictions are eased, our Directors will travel to our Florida base to establish a team. We understand the importance of recruiting from the local area and we are looking forward to forming our US Team.
We are thrilled to have secured our US Head Office. We are already working with clients on a global scale in America, South Africa, Italy and Hong Kong to name a few. However, this base will allow us to centralise our international presence.”
