County Durham based business development consultancy Hudson Group is now working with clients in 18 countries around the world.

Hudson Group began with a small team and an ambitious vision.

Husband and wife team, Jill and John Hudson built the business from the ground up. Their initial product, Creative Tenders, was launched to help creative sector businesses grow through by sourcing new opportunities. From there, it was evident that more industries would benefit from this type of service.

Today, the Hudson Group is comprised of:

  • 11 sector-specific tendering portals, Hudson Discover.
  • A bid writing consultancy, Hudson Succeed.
  • The UK’s first, tendering-focussed, online training platform, Tender VLE.
  • Six more divisions in development and plans in motion to expand into the US.

The team at Hudson have always had big ambitions and goals, which includes branching out of the UK, into overseas markets. Today, the team are thrilled to say they have officially supported clients in 18 countries around the globe. Hudson’s clients now stretch from the UK to 10 other European countries and from Russia to the Caribbean.

Their Hudson Succeed division recently supported an Italian business, making their first entrance into the UK market.

Fillipo Ensenki, Operations Manager at Barbara B Cooperativa Sociale said: “In Hudson we found very responsive and professional support, in particular given the difficulties of transferring/translating the value of our Italian Social Cooperative work into the bid writing process: language sometimes can be a limit but we found how flexibility and creativity helped Hudson to support our business.”

Hudson’s Managing Director, Jill Hudson, said: “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.”

The Group’s CEO, John Hudson, said: “I am so proud of our team for working together to expand Hudson’s reach. This year we will continue to further grow the team in the UK as well as establishing ourselves in the US market. 2021 will be a year of growth at Hudson and this is a great start.”
