New office in Manchester for Top Banana

St Peter's Square office becomes agency's third UK location in closer proximity to northern-based clients.

Top Banana has opened a new Manchester office, which becomes the agency’s third UK location, joining its regional office in London and headquarters in the Midlands.

The new office will place the agency closer to its northern based clients, which include DFS, Wilko, Experian and Home Instead.

"The decision to open an office in the north of England was always part of our business strategy and after a successful year of growth and new client wins, we felt now was the right time," said Richard Bridge, founder and CEO of Top Banana.

"With Manchester being named as the most creative city outside of London, it was an obvious location choice for us. We can’t wait to be part of the creative scene.

"The launch of the new Manchester office has opened up a new pool of exciting talent and we’re looking forward to growing the team further in the future."

The Manchester operation, based in St Peter’s Square, will be headed up by client services director, Marc Hazelden, who explains that the office will support a planned development to not only better support their existing clients in the north but is a strategic part of the business’s exciting growth.

Hazelden added:  "It’s an exciting time to be part of the Top Banana team and I am honoured to be playing such an instrumental role in the opening of our third UK office.

"Since I joined in 2017, we have worked hard to grow our northern presence and as a result our client base. The new Manchester office will allow myself and the team to not only strengthen our relationships with our existing clients, but to grow our client base in the north."

Earlier this year, the agency won a contract to work with furniture retailer DFS.
