Sheffield and London search agency expands global reach with US office launch
A search agency with offices in South Yorkshire and London has announced plans to expand to the US with the launch of a new office.
Rise at Seven has registered in the state of Illinois and made its first US hire, with plans to open a new office in Chicago later this year.
Founded in June 2019 by Carrie Rose and Stephen Kenwright, Rise at Seven specialises in SEO, content, digital PR and creative services.
The agency has grown 300 per cent during lockdown, working with the likes of Pretty Little Thing, Playstation, GAME, Made.com, Parkdean Resorts, Cath Kidston and GoCompare.
Rise at Seven has grown to 60 members of staff across Sheffield, London and Spain over the past two years, and hopes that the new Chicago office will bolster its international offering.
Carrie Rose, co-founder of Rise at Seven, commented: “Through our work with global brands in the UK and Europe, we have naturally gained traction in the US, and our plans for growth there are ambitious.
“With a third of our client base now US clients, we have plans to super-charge our work in America to build reputation, grow rapidly as we have in the UK and expand our offering. Once work commences, I plan to move out there myself to develop Rise at Seven operationally and culturally, ensuring our values aren’t lost in translation overseas.
“Chicago is the perfect place to start building Rise at Seven in America. We have a huge client base already there, will be neighbouring with plenty of brand headquarters and have well-connected staff already in the pipeline.
“We chose Chicago over New York - where competition is high, it’s costly, and hiring is a real challenge - as finding talented, passionate and enthusiastic people who match our brand values is key for Rise at Seven.”
