Four friends from different sectors of the creative industries have come together to launch their own advertising and marketing agency.
Ian Watson from Harrogate, Chris Barker from Ilkley, Jason Kelly from Leeds and Charles Christie from Halifax have spent years working for big-city agencies, gaining reputations for producing campaigns for some of the UK’s best-known brands, including Dulux, Sony, Fat Face, Cunard, Lloyds Bank and Virgin Media.
They have now launched The Expose Agency, producing advertising, marketing and digital services for brands looking to build relationships with consumers living across the North.
“All four of us know that Yorkshire has some of the most exciting and successful businesses in the UK and we now bring our advertising and marketing talents to those companies. We decided after spending so long working for other agencies in cities like London that it was time to come back home and launch The Expose Agency.’ said Mr Watson.
Based in Harrogate, The Expose Agency is already looking at moving to larger premises and recruiting more staff to accommodate growth. It aims to become one of the best performing agencies in Yorkshire.
