Connect set to expand with London office launch

Midlands-based Connect Group is expanding its operation by opening its first office in London.

The 100-strong agency has opened a new office in Greville Street, Islington, on the back of further work from clients including Jaguar Land Rover and Bentley. The office will help the agency to better support these international brands, while at the same time attracting further work.

Speaking of the new office launch, client services director and partner, Antony Green said: “Our aim is to attract top talent into the agency from across the world. In the last 12 months we have welcomed a number of high profile people from countries including China, Ukraine, France and Germany.

“This international talent joins our director of digital services and partner, Jose Espinosa from the USA as well as a number of very senior London-based creatives.

“The move is a milestone for us and will provide a foothold in London from which to further grow our client base.”

Rob Hampton, MD, says the agency will continue to be led from headquarters in Wolverhampton: “The city of Wolverhampton will always be our home. This expansion into London is to meet the needs of our international clients and will house creatives, digital and account management.”
