A Middlesbrough based communications company has experienced rapid growth over the last year, so much so that the owner has invested in a larger office which will not only accommodate the current inflated team but will also allow for further growth.
Colehouse Communications has moved to a larger office with in its current base at Commerce House, a grade II listed building in the heart of the city, which will now comfortably home the team of six.
Company owner Steve Cole launched his new office at Commerce House just a year ago with a team of two, as the business celebrated its fifth anniversary.
Steve moved back to the North East following a successful digital marketing career in London, opened Colehouse Communications and now has an impressive portfolio of clients, a team of six and is looking to recruit again!
Steve was involved in the campaign encouraging young people to vote in the 2015 General Election with Bite The Ballot collaborating directly with Twitter, ITV News and YouTube and more recently they have worked closely on the largest TEDx events ever in cities across the North. Steve said:
“Our portfolio has included some high quality names as digital clients, including the Great Exhibition of the North, Thinking Digital and The Bartr Group. We have also in the last year expanded our performance marketing offering, due to the huge success we have had in demonstrating return on investment. I have cemented this by bringing in a talented team who together cover all digital bases with the best experience possible.”
Colehouse Communication’s clients are spread across the UK, including Manchester, London and Birmingham but Steve was adamant that he wanted his roots to be in Middlesbrough. And that he would be focused on creating jobs for people from Teesside. He is delighted that over the last year his vision has come true and is even more delighted that he can stay in Commerce House, within larger office space.
On visiting Commerce House the first time, he knew he had found ‘home’ and has been determined to expand within the building:
“Commerce House reflects where the company is right now, and both the team and the client base love it here. It is in some way responsible for our success of tripling the size of the digital marketing team and growing our client base to include event based companies, SME’s blue chip corporates and charities across every industry!”
Christine Huntington, facilities manager at Commerce House, said:
“When Steve and the Colehouse Communications team joined us last year they had large aspirations and we couldn’t be happier to see the growth of the company. To move them to a larger office which reflects that success has been rewarding. It also gives another small company the chance to benefit from being part of the Commerce House community, as Steve’s original office which holds four to five desks is now available. Anyone interested should move quickly as it wont stay vacant for long!”
