Leeds and London agency expands with third office opening
After achieving triple figure turnover growth, Leeds and London-based performance marketing agency Journey Further has launched a third office.
Having doubled headcount from 25 to 50 across its Leeds and London office, Journey Further is opening its new operation in Manchester in line with increasing client demand.
Working in fashion, travel and finance sectors, Journey Further offers creative direction across paid and organic activity online.
The agency has grown from three people in January 2017 to a team of 53, with second year turnover growth of 125 per cent and fee revenue growth of 183 per cent to £1.8m. The company is on track for a further 90 per cent growth in revenue in 2019.
Ed said: “I am really excited to be joining the Journey Further team and establishing the agency in Manchester. It is rare to find an agency that has such a strong proposition and a set of values that has created a unique and empowering culture.
“I will be working closely with Robin and the team to deliver for our clients and foster that culture in Manchester.”
The new office located at XYZ, 2 Hardman Boulevard, will be headed by Ed Blakeway, who will lead as head of programmatic and paid social. Previous roles have included associate director at iProsect and head of programmatic at Search Laboratory.
Robin Skidmore, CEO at Journey Further, added: “Manchester presents a huge opportunity for us to connect with ambitious talent and forward-thinking brands who believe in the power of performance marketing.
“Ed’s ambition to grow the most talented team around makes him the perfect person to lead the charge on the rainy side of the Pennines.”
