Leeds-based print, direct and digital marketing agency, Telescope, has acquired specialist communications agency, Clearsilver Brand Marketing.
The recent investment combines Clearsilver’s PR and strategic marketing skills in the education, mother and baby, and charity sector, with Telescope’s team of specialists in website design and build, catalogue production, direct marketing and design for print.
Louise Leach, former Director of Clearsilver Brand Marketing, said: “Clearsilver and Telescope have worked in partnership on numerous projects over the last ten years, and there isn’t a closer fit to maximise success for both parties. Clearsilver was established in 2006, and since then has delighted in numerous award-wins, as well as becoming a recommended provider for schools and academy trusts, and brands specifically in the charity, wellness and parenting space.
“Existing clients can expect the same level of consistent and responsive service as always from the Clearsilver team, with a new, enhanced package of support.”
Carl Garnett, CEO at Telescope, said: “This merger provides a fantastic opportunity to further Telescope’s core proposition in print, design and digital, and combine it with Clearsilver’s unprecedented reputation across key sectors. We are looking forward to increasing and enhancing our service offering and the opportunities this brings for all our clients and both staff teams.”
The newly formed partnership will work as one team at new offices close to Leeds Dock. Ian Leach, co-founder of Clearsilver and current MD at Telescope, will lead in the day-to-day management of both companies, supported by both companies’ employees.
