Inc & Co has launched in Manchester after acquiring digital marketing agency Fast Web Media and mobile app development business Cuhu.
The newly formed group will also be spearheaded by an established senior team including Lynne Makinson-Walsh as head of people, Dave Antrobus as tech director, Carla Gonzalez as head of brands and Jack Walsh as head of finance.
Headed up by group chief executive Jack Mason, together with business partner Dave Antrobus, Inc & Co helps its integrated agencies thrive by providing collective resources such as business development, financial and HR support across the group.
Following a rebrand developed by fellow Manchester agency Creative Spark, Fast Web Media will continue under a new name and feature an evolved service offering, which includes website development as well as digital marketing and SEO. New agency Cuhu will launch as part of the group and offer mobile app development.
Group CEO Jack Mason comments: "This is an unbelievably exciting development for Manchester’s tech and digital marketing scene. By bringing these agencies together under the Inc & Co umbrella, we can offer a strong proposition for our clients and our teams.
"Running a small agency can be challenging, especially when dealing with fluctuating cash flow, growth pains, and large city-centre office rental fees, but being part of the same group means we can offer a much more robust proposition, shared resources, talents, and a wider range of collaborative services for our clients."
The new group is currently in talks with a multitude of agencies across the UK to expand its portfolio, and launching two new ventures over the coming months.
