Five years have passed since the launch of touch associates and the Surrey and Milton Keynes based agency says the numbers graph of its financial performance illustrates the journey of success.
A turnover of £1.2m in 2012, rose to £10.4m in 2014 and to £27.7m last year, with profits of £1.4m.
touch director David Selden is confident the momentum will continue. “2017 will see further significant increase in our financial performance compared to 2016, and the momentum doesn’t look to be slowing down,” he said.
The agency, which also has offices in New Jersey and Indianapolis claim it is only doing what it predicted back in 2012 when Patrick Collins said: “Some great entrepreneurial leaders are running their own small to medium sized agencies; but once you get to a certain size, your capacity is limited, so you tend to stay there. Put a group of like-minded entrepreneurial leaders working closely together and build a team of free thinking, talented, pride-driven individuals and there should be no limits.”
During 2015 touch added two more like-minded people to its board of five, David Bottrill and David Selden. Both helped establish the company as a true full-service agency.
One of the agency’s original founders Nick Bender added: “It’s been a fun five years. We want to thank our people and clients for coming on the journey with us. We put relationships at the centre of the business, as it’s people who make things happen. We are very excited about the future.”
The agency said it would soon be announcing “significant recruits” to enhance their services and delivery further.
