Sunderland marketing firm reports over £300k worth of new contract wins
A marketing agency is plotting its next stage of growth after winning several new contracts.
In the last six months, Sunderland’s Narrative has won more than £300k of work across its core service areas, including PR, advertising, digital media and marketing strategy.
Recent wins include Gentoo, Sage Gateshead and Godfrey Syrett.
Godfrey Syrett, a furniture designer and manufacturer based in North Tyneside, has appointed Narrative to develop and implement a full marketing strategy.
Narrative will support Godfrey Syrett’s vision of reaching £50m turnover by the end of 2020, as well as strengthen its market position.
Godfrey Syrett CEO, Mark Dixon, commented: “We are delighted to be working with Narrative to support our continued transformation of the business.
“[The company has] shown a real understanding of our goals and challenges, and already have some excellent ideas around how we can develop the Godfrey Syrett brand to 2020 and beyond.”
The recent contract wins mark the latest stage in the evolution of Narrative, aiming to add up to five staff to its 19-strong team in the next year.
Since taking ownership of the business in 2014, MD Kieron Goldsborough has transformed the company with the addition of several new services including strategic marketing and digital services.
Kieron added: “We’re excited to start working with Godfrey Syrett and be able to support their ambitious plans for business growth and development.
“Our two companies share a similar ethos and set of values and, as such, we’re confident that we can develop a strong, sustained partnership.
“We aim to make successful marketing easy and effective for Godfrey Syrett and in time we’d hope to be seen as an integral part of their existing team.”
