Honchō has been on a remarkable journey of success and expansion since its creation in 2008. Founded and launched by Chris Ailey as iThinkMedia, the company originally focused on primarily providing SEO services. Its first-ever client was a notable brand of nationwide repute – Mothercare.In the years since, the company has evolved and grown, not just in number but also in terms of the services it offers. In 2019, to better reflect the changing nature of the agency, it was rebranded as Honchō; a bold new name for a brave new future.

Retaining its specialist strengths in SEO, Honchō now also has in-house teams for PPC, Paid Social, Digital PR, Content and Client Services. Recruitment throughout 2021 saw Honchō grow to almost 40 passionate, creative and committed individuals, many of whom are based at the office HQ in the idyllic Hertfordshire countryside. Others work remotely, with the flexibility to meet up for client meetings and team collaboration.

Honchō has served over 100 different brands since 2008, including the likes of eBay, WWE, Gumtree and National Express. The current roster features Azus, Sarah Raven, Roberts Radio, Morphy Richards, Group 1 Automotive, Pentagon Motor Group, Carzam, NRS Healthcare, Ariat and Altro Flooring – but with the capacity to welcome many more.
