Leicester digital marketing agency Digital Ethos has acquired Knutsford-based marketing agency, Boxed Red.

Janna Caley, previous owner and director at Boxed Red, will stay with the company to ensure a smooth transition for staff and all clients. Heading up the Boxed Red business is the managing director, Ruth Gresty.

Luke Tobin, CEO of Digital Ethos, said: “I’m delighted to finally announce the acquisition of Boxed Red Marketing, this is a huge step for Digital Ethos and I’m so thankful for the opportunity to grow our talented team and become a dominant service provider in the north.

“This acquisition will increase our group revenue by around 25% while allowing us to expand our service offering. Boxed Red also has clients up and down the country and having localised business units in different cities is an important part of our growth plan.”

Caley said: “The acquisition was a natural fit for Boxed Red as the ethos of both businesses aligned so well. It was important to me that the brand and staff were retained and now with the support of a wider team, Boxed Red will be able to even better service our fantastic clients, further exceeding their objectives.”
