About us 

We are an entrepreneurial integrated communications agency that has gone from start-up to multi-national in just twenty two years. We have grown every year since foundation due to a combination of organic growth and strategic acquisitions. Our ambition is to break into the top ten by 2020. We have a network of 30 offices, 550 employees and revenues of $64m. Our success is reflected in being named PRCA’s International Agency of the Year for 2015. 

Central to our growth has been our policy of reinvestment, with the majority of profits returning to the company to propel development.  What makes us different is that, not only are we independent, but we are 100% employee-owned.

As we rapidly scale the business, our challenge is not to lose any of our character. We are agile, bold, collaborative, inquisitive and spirited.  And we believe that we are on the cusp of something truly remarkable in our industry.
