Independent agency network marks milestone birthday with 200th member

The world’s first virtual agency, Pimento, is marking 15 years in business by welcoming the 200th member to its national network of independent marketing and communications specialists.

Since its inception, Pimento has worked with hundreds of consultants, independent agencies and clients – representing potential partnerships totalling £53m.

Looking to bolster its continued growth, milestone customer FX Digital is a London-based R&D led digital agency which merges user-centred design with emerging technology.

Matthew Duhig, co-founder and managing director explained: “Forging strong connections has been central to our company success to-date, and we’re looking forward to evolving as part of this collective. We’re eager to begin collaborating with other members, delighted to join the Pimento network and honoured to be the 200th member!”

Proud of its disruptor status, Pimento works with clients such as Caffè Nero, Topgolf, Celebrity Cruises and ZipWorld, offering a new approach to marketing services, and one that is perfectly suited to today’s economy.

Understanding that a single-agency can’t always deliver on every element of a brief, Pimento has built a member-base that covers over 100 marketing strategy and communications skills – offering clients a bespoke marketing solution, tailored to their needs.

Stephen Knight, CEO and founder of Pimento, added: “We are immensely proud to have reached these significant milestones – 15 years in business, 200 members and a talent pool of almost 5,500 skilled professionals.

Ideally positioned to offer marketing solutions for clients of all sizes, Pimento also launched two sister companies in 2019 – Pimento People and Pimento Partners – offering recruiting and business consulting solutions, respectively.

Other recent member additions include SEO specialists StudioHawk – with offices in Australia and London – Manchester-headquartered e-commerce consultancy Thirty6Miles, as well as content curators Social Dividend Global via its central management hub in London and Dubai.
