Hype & Dexter named HubSpot’s ‘Rookie of the Quarter’


Hype & Dexter, the ‘Digital Transformation Agency’ founded in Auckland this year by four former GrabOne colleagues has been named by CRM & Marketing Automation software provider HubSpot, as their ‘Rookie of the Quarter’ for the APAC Region.


The award reflects the phenomenal growth of the ‘Digital Transformation Agency’, who in the first half of this year were the fastest growing HubSpot partner in the APAC region, and the fastest ever to reach Platinum Partner status in New Zealand.

Managing Director, Ryan Watkins, had this to say:

“Having worked in digital for decades, across Australasian business from start-ups to corporate, we have extensive experience in the fields of e-commerce, data and segmentation, social, video and content, digital development, inbound sales and operations. This means we can deliver the full stack of the HubSpot platform, from the Sales CRM through to the Service Hub and Marketing Automation, as well as new technology such as chatbots.

“HubSpot have been a key partner in us delivering this comprehensive transformation strategy across over 20 businesses, and our support from HubSpot has been instrumental to our growth as an agency. We also use it to run our own business so to be recognised by them as the top new agency in the region of Q2 2018 is amazing. They have even invited our founder Romi Dexter to their global Inbound conference in Boston to speak about how we’ve achieved our phenomenal growth.”

Hype & Dexter launched in January with five clients, and now boasts nearly 30, with plans to open their first overseas office by the end of the year. It is this level of growth that the award recognises.

"Hype & Dexter has set an example for how businesses everywhere should be transforming their marketing with inbound. Their strategic approach to attracting, engaging, and delighting customers has built valuable relationships and growth for their clients. Our team here at HubSpot is proud to call Hype & Dexter a Partner and recognize them as Rookie of the Quarter for the APAC region."

David McNeil, VP Global Partner Program and Strategy at HubSpot.
