Gateshead growth agency completes merger with Newcastle digital firm

A North East-based growth agency has completed a merger with a local digital business as part of its ongoing growth.

Gateshead-headquartered r//evolution has announced it has merged with Newcastle-based digital agency The Roundhouse.

Established in 1995, The Roundhouse is based in Newcastle and specialises in a range of services including brand design, digital marketing, PPC, SEO and web design.

r//evolution MD Gill Burgess explained: “We’re delighted to have further strengthened our offer through this deal. The Roundhouse’s reputation precedes it, and the quality of their work speaks for itself.

“We saw this as an ideal opportunity to combine our resource to further fuel our growth. Although its early days, our clients are already seeing the benefits of the increased breadth of expertise we have to offer.”

The Roundhouse’ co-founder and creative director, Nick Pugh, commented: “This is an exciting step for us all, and we’re delighted to bring the two businesses together under the r//evolution brand.

“There is a great culture-fit and the teams are already working well together, delivering on a number of significant projects.”

Lead corporate finance advisor on the deal was David Cudlip, who added: “The natural synergies between r//evolution and The Roundhouse brands make this deal an incredibly exciting one.

“The opportunity to combine both businesses aligns well with r//evolution’s growth plans and I would expect clients from both businesses to see the benefits early doors. I wish Gill, Adam and the r//evolution team every success.”
