Passion. Integrity. Creativity.

All our marketing services are driven by our core values. They guide us, inspire us, and they're the reason we're so highly respected.

Our reputation, client relationships and continued success sets us apart from the competition, and as a result, we boast a range of leading local, regional and national brands from a variety of sectors.

For us, it's all about people. From our dedicated team to our trusted suppliers, and of course our highly prized clients, who benefit daily from strategic support, great marketing and lasting, measurable results.

Our story.

Originally established in 1936, we’re the longest-running independently-owned marketing agency in the West Midlands.

Owners Sue Bailey and Michelle Wright joined forces in 2003 with one mission: to make GBW the most respected marketing agency in the region.

Since their management buyout in 2005, the business has gone from strength to strength, more than doubling in size and evolving to provide the full suite of marketing services.


In a nutshell.

We take the objective, refine the message, target the audience and make some noise.

And we get heard! Whether it’s a TV advert, PR stunt or a digital campaign, we always deliver.

Our team are individual specialists in advertising, digital marketing, public relations and property communications. We combine to deliver fully integrated campaigns across multiple channels, making budgets work harder and benefits last longer.
