Mr Smith, who launched his company in the early 2000s, has won 25 industry awards over the past five years.
He sees the recent achievements of MultiWebMarketing’s as a team effort rather than an individual success.
He said: “I’m flattered but I’m grounded as well because without this team and without my clients then who would I be?
“I set the direction for the strategy but I need the team to deliver it and, of course, it’s their skills that are pushing the buttons – creating the adverts. I am just one component in that. I might be the top component, but I am still a component.”
Mr Smith is also proud that the award went to a local firm.
He said: “I don’t see it as any different to where the film stars were born. They could have been born in Pontefract and have made it to global stardom so, I think, where your business is, doesn’t reflect the skill you’ve got.”
MultiWebMarketing specialises in producing professional websites and a number of different marketing strategies to generate leads and revenue.
These include social media, marketing and advertising, Google ad campaigns and email marketing.
The team has generated over £500 million worth of new business for its clients and the company’s work spans across 32 different UK industry sectors.
