Social media focused creative agency Social Chain has announced its plans to go public this year, its founders have announced.
Steve Bartlett and Dominic McGregor, who co-founded the fast-growing firm, announced the news on LinkedIn.
“On Friday, we gathered over 100 members of our team in Germany to share the news that Social Chain Group plans to become a public company this year and to unveil the new group logo,” wrote CEO Bartlett.
“Social Chain’s agency began as an innovative marketing agency and media business launched from a few co-working desks in Manchester. Over the last four years, it’s become a global marketing, media and e-commerce leader.
“Social Chain’s disruptive agency business will live across four countries and six cities this year – working with the worlds [sic] most forward thinking disruptive brands.
COO McGregor added: “We started the process which should be complete within the next few weeks.
“Over the last four years, Social Chain has grown from our home in Manchester to a business with office across four continents and over 700 people.
“Along the way, the main thing that has differentiated us from other business is our people. Across the whole business, we have people who think differently, care and continue to push through innovations which constantly make us better.
“Without these people, we wouldn’t be who we are. This is a thank you, to everyone along the way who’s supported, cared about and most importantly believed in Social Chain.
“The story is about to begin another chapter, however, this is still only the beginning. This will allow us to continue to invest in the current business structure, plan further growth and look at partners to facilitate our global ambitions.”
