FT 1000-listed Tribus launches digital marketing division

Leeds-based technology firm Tribus is accelerating its expansion plans with the launch of a new digital marketing division.

Tribus has built an international business by supporting firms with digital transformation through web and mobile applications, websites, and content.

The company has appointed Oliver Blackburn to lead the new marketing operation, which will offer existing and new clients a range of services, including strategic planning, SEO, PPC and paid social media.

Tribus is on track for a record year and will see turnover break £2.3m for the first time. The growth follows a record first quarter in 2024.

Adam Spry, director at Tribus, said: “Our outcome-focused model is helping us attract new customers and grow the scope of work with our existing clients. It’s a natural progression to launch the marketing services division to enable us to deliver a fuller range of services to clients and give clients a single point of responsibility from their agency partner.”

Tribus works with clients across various industry sectors delivering digital solutions for businesses, including Willmott Dixon, CFC Underwriting, SIG (Sheffield Insulation Group), AXA Climate and John Adams.

Laura Ellis, director at Tribus, said: “Oliver brings a wealth of experience to Tribus and is already having an impact on our clients across a diverse range of industries. We can now take a fuller view of a digital transformation project from business requirements to delivering technology solutions, data insight and wrap-around communications.”

Tribus is supporting its growth plans with a restructuring of the company that sees director, Dom Smith, leave the business. Mark Spilsbury, technical director, and Nathan Parks, creative director, join the board. The senior leadership team will be strengthened, with a focus on client delivery.

The company’s rapid growth has been recognised in the FT 1000: the annual list of Europe’s fastest-growing companies. The FT 1000, compiled with Statista, lists the European companies with the highest compound annual growth rate in revenue.
