Dentsu Aegis Network relocates leeds staff into state of the art offices
17 May 2016:
The Leeds office of global media and communciations agency Dentsu Aegis Network has united staff from two separate regional offices in the city into one new, sustainable city centre office.
The new office will be home to Carat and iProspect, after the agencies outgrew their previous premises’ following recent client wins, account growth and new appointments. Around 100 staff from leading media agency Carat and the digital performance agency iProspect have relocated from two existing offices at West One and the Round Foundry in Leeds, into a 13,500 sq. ft. premises across the fourth and fifth floors at 6 East Parade (6EP).
The building is part of a £3.5 million investment programme, and joint venture partnership of Bridges Ventures and Evanacre, which aims to rejuvenate the offices into “beautiful A-listed premises”.
Dominic Geary, Managing Partner, Dentsu Aegis Network Leeds, comments: “Our aim globally is to double in size by 2020 and 6 East Parade gives our operation in Leeds the springboard to achieve this goal.” Dominic continues: “When we were looking to bring together our teams, we wanted a building that provided both a state-of-the-art and sustainable office environment, to reflect our agency’s aspirations and culture. We soon realised that 6EP was a perfect match. The new office presents our employees with an inspiring contemporary working environment and represents the ambitions we have as a company to succeed. Combining our two offices gives us the opportunity to house all of our experience and expertise under one roof, which is something that both our clients and the team will truly benefit from. The move, along with recent new client wins across both Carat and iProspect, have helped to cement our position as the leading media agency within the region.”
