The brief includes PR, digital and thought leadership and will see Man Bites Dog’s STEM team reposition Olive as a leading provider of Cloud-based applications and unified communications for SMEs and larger corporates.
Olive Communications is the UK’s fastest growing business communications provider, recognised in The Sunday Times 2013 Tech Track 100. The firm recently made its tenth business acquisition in two years with risk mitigation software company SafetyBank, and has increased staff numbers by 540% in the same period. Olive’s customers include financial services firm Deutsche Bank, retailer Cath Kidston and major UK construction firm Mace.
Man Bites Dog will work with Olive Communications’ senior leadership team, marketing and sales teams to support the firm in its next wave of growth.
Dan Roche, Marketing Director at Olive Communications, comments: “Olive is at an incredibly exciting phase of growth and development. We believe our trusted managed service approach and our innovative technology portfolio is what the modern enterprise IT buyer wants, and needs. But while we’ve grown rapidly, much of our potential audience remains unaware of our capabilities. So we’ve chosen Man Bites Dog to help us devise the most effective communication strategy to reach our target customers.”
“Man Bites Dog were highly impressive during the pitch process, demonstrating that they fully understood the brief by producing a number of creative ideas, backed up by a clear program of delivery. The entire management team at Olive is energised about the forthcoming campaigns we have planned.”
Toby Brown, Head of Technology at Man Bites Dog, comments: "The world of work is changing fast, and Olive is at the forefront of helping companies stay ahead of the curve. We're tremendously excited to be joining the business at this pivotal time and helping take its communications to the next level."
