“I believe there is a gap in the market for impartial, channel neutral, strategic digital advice for clients at both business and channel performance levels,” said Crawford.

“Similarly, there are many digital agencies whose owners need input, advice and guidance with their planning and growth strategies as their business reaches a certain size and level of maturity, requiring more structure and discipline around the way their business is run.”

The Digital Strategy Unit is already working with Leeds-based strategy and commercial consultants Whitecap Consulting.
