Leeds-headquartered connective3 has today announced their plans to reach a 200 headcount as they enter their fifth year of trading. The agency, launched in 2019, already has a headcount of 100, with offices in Leeds, London, and Manchester. The agency delivers work for leading brands globally
Current clients include Ocado, Wren Kitchens, Avon, and Tapi Carpets. They have seen further growth in recent years, fuelled by the launch of their hugely successful international offering, which now accounts for 30% of the agency’s revenue. Client work is now delivered across key territories, including the US, Canada, Australia, and mainland Europe, with in-house language expertise contributing to the rate at which this service area has grown.
The agency has further strengthened its specialisms and headcount with two acquisitions to date including PR consultancy Silverthorn in 2019 and paid performance agency Made Greater in 2023.
They have established themselves not only as a leader within their sector but also as a respected industry thought leader through their events, including ‘Up North‘ – the digital marketing conference for 450 people that took place in Manchester on June 23.
Founded by the team behind Branded3, connective3’s CEO, Tim Grice, founded the performance marketing agency with an ambitious plan for growth:
Tim quotes about how we’ve grown and plans for the future.
“It’s been another fantastic year for the business despite a challenging economic climate, which has seen us grow fee income by 50% and expand to over 100 people. This has been driven by nearly 90% client retention and a paid media offering that has nearly doubled during the 22/23 period. We’re excited to continue our growth organically in the coming year, with new products being launched across our strategic and creative teams as well as adding key hires into the business at all levels. We know the coming year is likely to be even more challenging but are confident we are positioned correctly to help our clients explore new channels and drive growth.”
