May 7, 2012

LONDON, May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Global digital marketing agency iCrossing is to open its 19th worldwide office in Manchester, which will help the agency service its increasing number of regional clients. The new office will be located in the facilities of Hearst Magazines U.K., the principal U.K. business of Hearst Corporation, which is also iCrossing’s parent firm.

Don Scales, President and CEO, iCrossing, said, “The opening of the Manchester office is a product of iCrossing’s relationship with Hearst and demonstrates our commitment to building connected brands for our clients around the world.”

The Manchester office will service the growing number of iCrossing clients across the North West region such as LA Fitness U.K. iCrossing also recently supported the launch of the new look of fashion and beauty website ELLEuk.com, published by Hearst Magazines U.K.

The Manchester office will be the agency’s third U.K. office, joining locations in London and Brighton.

Paul Doleman, CEO, iCrossing U.K., said, “Manchester is an invigorating and vibrant city. Opening an office there means that we will be closer to our growing list of clients in the region and able to provide better servicing and increased support. Our presence in the North West will play a key role in driving our U.K. growth.”

Doleman added, “With the likes of MediaCityUK there’s going to be an explosion in the region’s creative and digital industries with an influx of highly skilled and experienced talent, which we’ll be able to tap into. It’s a really exciting time for both iCrossing and Manchester.”
