Dept scoops a podium place in Prolific North’s Top 50 agencies
Dept has scooped a podium place in Prolific North’s 2020 Top 50 Digital Agency rank, coming it at number three overall and number one in Manchester. The youngest agency in the list, Dept has leapt from fifth to third place, following a year of growth and expansion.
The PN Top 50 is the definitive listing of the North’s leading digital agencies spanning web, content, mobile, e-commerce, SEO and PPC. The results are anchored on financials including balance sheet/shareholder funds, turnover, pre-tax profit, headcount and growth. Dept is not only the youngest agency in the Top 10, but is also the leading agency with a Manchester headquarters.
Brian Robinson, Managing Director at Dept in the UK, said, “To be recognised earlier this year as Large Tech Company of the Year at the Digital City Awards and now securing this top position is a fantastic boost for the agency. Our ethos of being ‘big enough to cope, but small enough to care’ has really resonated with our clients, especially at this current time. We’re laser-focused on continuing our growth and look forward to evolving our service offering in 2020 to help accelerate our clients’ digital business.”
It’s been a busy twelve months for Dept in the UK; e3creative officially re-branded to Dept, the agency opened its new UK flagship office in the historic Bridgewater House and opened an office in Leeds, and it launched its Commerce division. The team has strengthened its partnerships with brands including Triumph Motorcycles, Playstation and O2, while welcoming new clients including Tipi, British Gymnastics, London Marathon, Destinology and Lyst.
