Hi, In the sentence:

"... with our clients who always make us their first choice and whom we always make them shine....."

is the use of "them" redundant? Should the sentence have been:

... with our clients who always make us their first choice and whom we always make shine.....

Is it imperative to remove "them"? Thank you very much in advance

I think you could either you could include or leave out "them" in the sentence. It does seem redundant though.

While I don't know of any rule where you cannot use who and whom in the same sentence, it does make the sentence sound more "wordy".

I would tend to write: with our clients who always make us their first choice and we always make them shine.
