From Newcastle to Philly: Digital agency to build US team


A Newcastle-based software innovation firm and digital agency has outlined plans to expand in the US after opening a new office in Philadelphia.

Shout Digital’s US expansion follows the opening of the company’s office in London.

Since launching in 2009, the company has worked with organisations in the finance, property, leisure, education and retail sectors.

Chief executive Gary Boon said the US team will be working closely with large-scale FinTech companies, banks and multi-million-pound financial institutions to “revolutionise their digital presence”.

“Shout is internationally recognised for our innovation expertise and our heart and soul has always been in the North East,” he added.

We’re excited to share some of our region’s passion, creativity and expertise with our partners in the US. Our clients span the globe and it makes sense to expand our physical and visible presence both in the UK and overseas.

“Philly is the ideal location to start to build our US team, we are surrounded by world-class colleges, universities and global firms, and the city has one of the most vibrant and underrated tech scenes in the world.”

Shout Digital’s portfolio includes digital platform builds for the likes of Great Run Training, Park Dene Resorts, St Ermin’s Hotel in central London, Northumbria University and CPP.

Earlier this year, Shout developed the official app for Newcastle International Airport to improve the experience of passengers.

The app allows customers to book car parking, lounge access and Security Fast Track, with all bookings saved in one place, while also listing real-time flight arrival and departure updates and alerts.
