The Exposure Group (now re-branded as The Casbah) is an independent creative communications agency with offices in London, New York and Paris. It comprises Exposure Promotions, Beauty Seen companies and Threesixty. Pre-pandemic the group turnover was just below £40Million with 200+ staff in the UK, USA and France.
Ben Stratton-Woodward, Exposure’s Global Head of IT, took some time out to talk to us about why they chose to make the transition and what it means for them in the future.
“Being a cloud-first company meant we were really resilient when the pandemic hit, and I think that opened us up to the opportunities that come with cloud adoption” said Ben, connected by Zoom from his sound-proofed home music-room-come-office.
“Moving to Paprika hosted seemed like an obvious thing to do because ultimately now, in terms of the technology we use, we want to focus on what’s easiest for the user and I think everyone is on board with that. Since the pandemic, we’ve reduced the size of our real estate. We’re now working across fewer floors and one less building because we have a work from home hybrid model going forward (hence why I’m at home).”
