Owners Davinia Hamilton-Maddox and Chris Gibson co-founded Phoenix Digital in February 2016, to deliver a no-nonsense approach to digital marketing. The pair launched the Manchester agency in The Greenhouse, MediaCityUK, adding to the hub’s diverse and thriving mix of start-up businesses.
Former director and owner of digital agency sevenpointsix, Chris Gibson ran his own successful business for the last 11 years and prior to that, worked for McCann i – the digital arm of McCann Ericsson. Chris heads up web development and technical capability for Phoenix Digital.
Chris joined forces with Davinia Hamilton-Maddox, an entrepreneur with a full service marketing background. Davinia’s focus within Phoenix Digital is on advising and managing digital marketing projects for clients.
Davinia said: “The online landscape is instrumental in connecting brands with their audiences, and the way we do this for our clients is both simple and effective.”
She continued: “The beauty of being based in The Greenhouse is that we are neighbours with a lot of like-minded enterprises so there is the chance to collaborate and really be part of the creative mix at MediaCityUK.”
Managing director of MediaCityUK, Stephen Wild added: “Phoenix Digital is an exciting new start-up agency in Manchester and we are delighted that they have chosen MediaCityUK as their launchpad.
“They join a growing community of expanding creative and digital enterprises which collaborate and share knowledge in a way that isn’t as easy in other working spaces. The Greenhouse is thriving and we are excited for Phoenix Digital to be part of the story.”
