The Leeds agency has seen impressive growth and expansion since it was founded seven years ago. Now based in Marshalls Mill in the creative Holbeck area of the city, the recent addition of four new members of staff brings the total headcount to 22.
This expansion, coupled with demand from high-profile clients has pushed Zeal to open a second office in the south.
Managing director, Jane Rutter said, “I never wanted Zeal to be ‘just another agency’. It turns out that our point of difference over the past 7 years has been this…we get stuff done.
“It’s why we’ve grown, it’s why we’ve got some incredible clients, and it’s why we’ve pinched a lot of work from large London agencies.
“It’s these clients, and the possibility of more, that prompted us to start looking for a new London home. I want to bring our no-nonsense, do what we say we will, Northern attitude to London and I want us to be closer to the clients that have supported us in our growth.”
The new office brings with it access to meeting rooms all over London and means the agency can be on hand to service some of its London-based clients such as British American Tobacco, Epson, Page and Cooper and Benefit Cosmetics.
Zeal also hopes that its London location will also help it to grow by working with more big-name London companies.
The new London office will be headed up by Kristina Bergwall who will be relocating down South.
Kristina said: “I’m really excited to have been given this opportunity to grow Zeal’s presence in London and head up the new office as we expand. Professional and personally, I’m looking forward to beginning a new chapter down South.”
