Fast, agile and wicked smart, it perfectly embodies the joining of two powerhouse agency forces, spottydog and Big Cat, coming together under one roof.
We are excited to introduce the newest marketing communications group: Leopard Co Consisting of two existing Birmingham household names in creative and communications agencies, alongside a brand-new, third agency, Leopard Co.
Each brand brings a distinctive offer to help clients at any stage of their internal or external business challenge or marketing journey. The three brands can also come together to deliver an end-to-end solution rooted in strategy and executed through highly effective marketing activities:
spottydog communications: tactical delivery with heritage in PR, content & social, with consumer and B2B audiences.
Leopard Co: Our strategic marketing communications practice.
Big Cat: Tactical delivery with heritage in creative campaigns and digital marketing.
These three brands now create one of the Midlands biggest marketing communications consultancies, enabling current and prospective clients to benefit from a full-service integrated marketing communications solution, offering strength and depth across the full range of strategic and tactical marcomms services.
This new marketing communications group is the brainchild of Rachel Roberts, Founder and CEO of spottydog, and Anthony Tattum, Founder and CEO of Big Cat.
“Offering existing and new clients a fully integrated marketing communications solution is what Leopard Co is all about — and we’re so excited to finally unleash Leopard Co to the world after almost a year of planning.” Says Rachel.
Both spottydog and Big Cat have a long history in providing strategic communications consultancy and now, as one big team, we are looking forward to packaging this capability to create our dedicated Leopard Co strategy practice.
At the heart of Leopard Co though is the team. Our priority through creating this new company has been supporting our incredible people and we can’t wait to expand the leap by welcoming new starters following our influx of client wins.”
As two great businesses with outstanding reputations, spottydog and Big Cat will continue to operate working with clients within their respective core strengths of PR, social media, content & digital marketing and creative campaigns.
“The spottydog and Big Cat brands are perfectly positioned to continue to support our portfolio of clients execute their tactical marcomms, providing channel and sector expertise, and audience insights”, says Anthony.
"In these times of great change and uncertainty, many brands and businesses have embarked on their own transformation journeys. This brings many challenges including clarity, alignment, culture, visibility, and accountability. Our new strategy practice, Leopard has been formed primarily to bridge the gap between business strategy and results."
