Ant Marketing acquire MarketMakers brand
The MarketMakers brand has been acquired by the Ant Group. Ant is a leading, multi-disciplined solution provider offering customer experience & service support, business development, inside sales and social media monitoring.
Combined with strong growth in the existing 600-strong Ant business during the pandemic, the organisation is set to have business growth well into next year.
Ant Marketing was set up by Anthony Hinchliffe 31 years ago. Last year, Ant celebrated 30 years in business with 80 new jobs and a new office handling calls for a major retailer.
Ant Marketing’s Chief Executive Mr Hinchliffe, said the MarketMakers deal was ‘just the start’.
“Long term sustainability for our employees, our clients and our wider stakeholders in an increasingly challenging economic environment is at the heart of our agenda and this is just the start of our exciting plans for the future.
“The acquisition is that of brand assets rather than the entire organisation but we are delighted to be able to open up potential career opportunities to any talented people nationwide who would like to be a part of the Ant Marketing team.”
MarketMakers former Marketing Director, Gemma Storkey, is working alongside Ant Marketing to support them in their business growth following the acquisition.
Ant’s customers include Heinz, The Economist and RBS.
