Manchester is First Choice for Creative Industry

Share Article

Full service digital marketing agency Refreshed Media has chosen Salford Quays, Manchester as the location for its north of England office as part of its national expansion.

Manchester will be the first office to open as part of Refreshed Media's new expansion and will serve as their north of England base. Refreshed has chosen Manchester because of its booming creative and media economy, revitalised city centre, and its excellent transport infrastructure.

New media companies are leading the way as Manchester fast becomes the only true contender for the coveted title of Britain's second city. Almost 60% of the Manchester economy is now made up of education, media and creative companies. The city is also attracting large international media companies alongside established companies like Granada and The Guardian Media Group. The site for the new office, Salford Quays, has been completely revitalised from a dilapidated industrial area into a lively leisure and business district. The Quays were among the top venues during the 2002 Commonwealth Games and the BBC has chosen the area as a possible site to relocate many of their departments in 2011.

New starter, Jennie Heggie will coordinate sales at the new office. Jennie joins Refreshed Media from the Co-operative Group and has extensive digital marketing knowledge and experience. Jennie commented about the new office opening: "I'm really excited about joining the Refreshed team and helping to build the company's reputation in the north of England. Manchester is the media hub of the north, so it's the perfect place to tap into some of the best creative minds in the UK."

Refreshed Media has grown fast over the last four years and an extensive nationwide expansion is a natural next step. Three new offices are planned and these will further improve the excellent service that Refreshed Media has built its success on. With offices near to many major cities, its aim is to have dedicated account managers available locally to maintain much closer relationships with clients and better understand their business needs.

Sarah Baker the Sales and Marketing Director at Refreshed Media commented: "To deliver the quality of a national brand, we understand our customers deserve local service, and the launch of Refreshed's Manchester office is critical to serving clients such as Transform, the UK's largest cosmetic surgery company. To support the current sales growth we have also welcomed 6 new members of staff to the ever growing Refreshed family."

Offices in Edinburgh and Reigate are scheduled for opening mid 2007.
