The PHA Group strengthens Northern expansion with Leeds agency acquisition

Today we are excited to announce our second acquisition, adding Leeds-based creative communications agency MCG to the group.

MCG has built a strong reputation in Leeds over the last 22 years and works with clients including Northern Trains, Pink Lady apples, fashion brand Damart and domestic cleaning brands Vileda and Marigold.

MCG is The PHA Group’s second acquisition, following our purchase of digital agency Red Hot Penny 20 months ago, and will bolster the agency’s growing regional presence.

The PHA’s Group Managing Directors, Shelley Frosdick and Stuart Skinner will oversee MCG’s integration and issued a joint statement: “We are delighted to bring MCG into the group and strengthen our growing regional presence. We are committed to long-term investment in regional growth, in particular the North of England where we have seen growth, talent and client opportunity in equal measure. It has been a pleasure dealing with Christine, Sarah and Kate through the acquisition process and we look forward to building further on the strong client base and reputation they have created.”

MCG co-founder Christine Mortimer commented: “Sarah, Kate and I have been lucky enough to work with some incredible people – both our clients and our teams – over the past 22 years and we are delighted to see MCG become part of such a brilliant, award-winning agency.”
