Dialogue agency is retained by investment specialist Rcapital, to bolster its creative portfolio following Archant sale to Newsquest Media Group.
Archant Community Media Ltd was successfully sold to Newsquest Media Group, trade buyer, this week as it moves to accelerate its growth in the local media sector.
Private investor, Rcapital has retained content and marketing agency Dialogue (formerly Archant Dialogue) as it enters into a second phase of its investment programme to expand and deepen market-leading creative services.
The London and Norfolk-based agency has helped global clients such as Harley-Davidson, Bentley Motors and Porsche Club GB engage customers and communities with world-leading creative and storytelling.
Rcapital will support Dialogue’s operations, alongside Zoë Francis-Cox who leads the agency with Mel Vince, Isobel Robson and Alan Dykes making up the senior management team, to be joined by a new Financial Director.
Dialogue will continue to use Archant’s central support services while the transition takes place, and will be actively recruiting to facilitate growth.
