Ceuta Group, the global consumer brand services group, has announced the acquisition of Cheshire based search marketing agency Click Consult.
Founded in 2003, Click Consult employs a team of more than 70 search and conversion professionals, working with a portfolio of 60 clients from across the UK, Europe, Americas and Australia.
The acquisition is part Ceuta Group’s strategy to invest in complementary businesses to enhance the Group’s offering to current and prospective clients.
Edwin Bessant, Ceuta Group CEO, said: “We are delighted to welcome Click Consult, a fantastic business with a strong culture, values and people closely aligned to our own, to the Ceuta Group family. Many of our clients are struggling with their digital & search marketing strategies and are seeking expertise on how best to construct a compelling online proposition that effectively engages their target audiences. The inclusion of Click Consult in our offering is the last piece of the brand building puzzle for many companies and will deliver significant benefits to our global market base.”
Matt Bullas, Click Consult founder and CEO, added: “Over the last 15 years, we have worked to build Click Consult into a leading digital and search marketing agency that delivers a highly effective service and ROI for our clients. We are excited to join Ceuta Group and realise the mutual value the combination will create, while also providing a platform for Click Consult to continue to grow to new heights. Organisations are increasingly looking to reach consumers directly rather than through retail channels and this is something we are perfectly positioned to help them achieve alongside the Ceuta Group of companies.”
According to Click Consult, the agency will continue to operate as an independent business, collaborating with other companies under the Ceuta Group umbrella for clients and brands.
