Manchester social media agency Social Republic has opened its first overseas office, in New York.
The agency is supported by the NatWest Entrepreneur Accelerator and was founded in 2015 by Rob Illidge.
He said: “Opening an office outside of the UK has always been a dream of ours, and New York is the perfect home. We have seen a noticeable increase in enquiries from US based brands whom wish to develop their social media campaigns, working with an experienced and flexible agency.
“Our team in the city that never sleeps will allow us to develop brands and build our offering as we sleep on this side of the pond.
“As someone who lived and studied in the United States, I understand the culture, determination and appetite for success of American businesses.”
The agency has worked with global brands eBay and Pioneer in addition to Manchester Metropolitan University, Melanoma UK, Scanlans and the Business Growth Hub.
Earlier this year, Social Republic has committed to hiring up to 25 new employees during to support its growth after raising investment and is seeking further investment to aid it’s expansion.
