In a mutually agreeable move, we’re today announcing that Ardent Creative will be merged with West Sussex-based full service marketing agency PMW Communications Ltd.
Effective from Friday September 1st, the merger-acquisition is the latest stage in the journey of our agency, which was founded over thirty years ago by Chris Quarton.
Following Chris’s sad death last year, we felt this was the next logical step, and the best way to deliver continued success for our valued clients.
PMW will celebrate 24 years in business this year and is an award-winning owner-managed agency based in Billingshurst, near Horsham. Founded by Peter Sutton, the agency boasts a team of 32 creatives specialising in PR, web design, SEO/PPC, social media, advertising, events, and graphic and digital design.
Our managing director Henry Quarton will continue to remain involved in the company during the transition period and on a regular basis thereafter.
Henry said: “My father and Peter Sutton always had a relationship of mutual respect, and therefore an ongoing collaboration makes perfect sense to both companies. I’m confident that this move will only bring further success to our clients.”
Peter Sutton, managing director at PMW, added: “Chris Quarton was a superb PR professional and somebody I always respected. It was a huge shock to the industry when he died suddenly last year. As we take on Ardent’s portfolio, we’re confident that we can do justice to Chris and Henry’s vision for their clients, and indeed offer an even wider range of marketing services.”
