We have welcomed Bromsgrove MP Sajid Javid to our offices on Friday 18th November, to help celebrate our 80th birthday. The celebrations saw a Fish and Chip van arrive at St. Johns house, surprising everyone with a tasty lunch which was thoroughly enjoyed by the team and Sajid Javid.
Founded as advertising agency Tom C Gough and Partners back in 1936, we’ve become the oldest independently owned agency in the West Midlands. Eighty years on we’ve grown to offer fully integrated marketing services, including PR, social, digital, creative and a specialist property communications team.
Since their management buyout in 2005, Sue Bailey and Michelle Wright have taken the company from strength to strength, more than doubling in size and evolving to provide the full suite of marketing disciplines.
Sue Bailey, Managing Director comments: “It’s fantastic to reach such a milestone in the company’s history, it is a credit to all those who have gone before us and the current team. We were grateful to Sajid for taking time out of his hectic schedule to join us for the celebration lunch of fish and chips. It was a great day.
“As a company we look forward to another 80 years of providing award winning marketing to a variety of local, national and regional clients.”
Sajid Javid, who is Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, adds: “80 years as a business is an impressive achievement and Sue and Michelle should be very proud. The company is a great example of a local business which continues to succeed and create jobs and I look forward to seeing its continued growth in the future.”
