Manchester agency Republic of Media has been appointed by VELUX to manage its media-buying across the UK and Ireland.

The market leader in roof windows has appointed the agency to oversee all media-buying with a multi-million budget including a planned TV campaign and significant digital activity.

The 30-strong agency won the business following a competitive pitch.

Andrew Lumsden, Senior Marketing Manager for VELUX, said “We are very excited at the prospect of working with Republic of Media going forward. 

“They displayed to us a well qualified understanding of the media & marketing challenges that face our brand pushing forward. We’re looking forward to building a solid collaborative relationship with the great team at RoM.”

Simon Crunden, Managing Director of Republic of Media, added: “We’re delighted to be working with VELUX in 2018 and beyond.  As a market leading national brand with a long heritage, we’ve wanted to work with them for some time, and it’s great to finally get the chance to help them expand their business further.”

The team at Republic of Media will be led by Managing Director Simon Crunden and Account Director Toby Hutchins, who joined in June 2017 from The 7Stars.
