The British Interactive Media Association (BIMA) has announced its annual BIMA 100, recognising the individuals who are shaping the future of Britain’s digital industry. The list includes influential, pioneering and groundbreaking people in the digital/tech industry and FX Digital is excited to announce that Co-Founder Matthew Duhig is on this year’s list.
Matt was chosen by an independent panel of industry experts in the Entrepreneurs and Visionaries category following a year in which he oversaw the growth of FX Digital – which he runs with his business partner Tom Smith – from 10 staff to 30, as well as more than doubling revenue. His passion for and knowledge of technology and strategy across Connected TV and Voice Experiences have hugely contributed to the growth of FX Digital and their innovation-led ethos is a credit to Matt’s influence.
Following social distancing guidelines, the announcement was made at an online ceremony hosted by BIMA on 6 May. The ceremony focused on the breadth of achievement of this year’s BIMA 100, demonstrating that there’s no single route to success within the industry.
“Our BIMA 100 is about recognising the people at the forefront of our industry,” explained BIMA Co-President Nat Gross. “They are the people making a fundamental difference to our industry right now and, given the strange circumstances in which we find ourselves, we need their inspiration, innovation and leadership more than ever.
“Fortunately, with people like Matt in this year’s BIMA 100, I think we’re in safe hands.”
Matt Duhig, Co-Founder, FX Digital, said: “I am incredibly proud to be included in the prestigious BIMA 100, along with 99 pioneering figures in traditional and digital media who I really admire. Tom Smith – my business partner – and I have worked incredibly hard to get our agency to where it is today. I have always believed that innovation and Research & Development is key to growing not only our own business, but advancing society as a whole and I am delighted to see that our commitment to progress has been recognised.”
