Creative and marketing firm celebrates six figure investment

CUBE3, a creative, digital and marketing agency, has secured a six figure investment from Natwest.

The investment comes off the back of consistent and solid growth for the Manchester city centre agency, which is looking to grow its business to £5m in fee income by the end of 2017.

Cube3 said it will help fund its growth strategy to capitalise on the ever changing landscape of the marketing services industry.

Karl Barker, Cube3’s founder and chief executive, said: “We are in a very exciting period of our 17-year history and this investment capital will give us a great platform to realign our agency for growth over the coming years.

“We have conducted a comprehensive review of our operations and services that we provide in line with the ever changing industry that we work in. Once we have finalised our strategy, we will start rolling out our new approach to the market at the end of this year.

“Our core proposition will remain, as it has always been; to help our clients to build their business through delivering cohesive marketing strategies that deliver tangible ROI (return on investment). The new strategy will align Cube3’s services with the short, medium and long-term challenges facing businesses across a range of sectors.

“As the agency for entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs, Cube3 has recognised that the way in which it delivers valuable commercial growth is not restricted to marketing campaign execution. More importantly, the challenges facing marketers and business owners looking to build their business are not restricted to these areas either.

“The vision will ensure that Cube3 is positioned to help clients in a variety of situations and will be enabled by the investment received from Natwest.”

Matthew Mawdesley, Natwest’s Technology, Media and Telecoms relationship manager, said: “Cube3 is a highly creative and innovative digital agency, offering a broad range of quality, value-add services for its clients. The Natwest Tech and Media team really bought into their future plans, so we were keen to work with such an exciting and successful Manchester-based business.”
