Mantis and HdE form digital comms partnership

Written by Eleanor Willock

Bristol and London based comms agencies collaborate to offer wider scope of influencer campaigns

We’re announcing a new partnership today. Mantis is partnering with HdE, the digital growth agency, to offer extended services to clients. Through our relationship with HdE, our clients have access to new services; brand strategy, digital audience creation and retention expertise.

The partnership means that the combined agency client base, both strongly rooted in technology, will benefit from a wider consultative approach to both digital brand marketing  and traditional media and stakeholder communications strategies.

Mantis and HdE both have bases in Bristol, at the heart of the city’s technology and digital start-up culture. Eleanor Willock, client services director at Mantis, and Ashley Wheeler, founder at HdE, will manage the partnership’s progress, working with current clients to introduce the increased agency capabilities on both sides and seek new opportunities to work together.

Eleanor Willock, client services director at Mantis comments, “After working together on a recent project, I thought about the difference the alternative perspective and possibilities that working with HdE brought to the impact of what we created, and realised a partnership would be a natural next step. Our clients come to us for help reaching their audiences. Mantis is proud of its PR heritage and we excel at media and stakeholder relations, which is where we’ll always focus. This partnership will bring access to fresh thinking over new digital mediums directly to our clients from HdE, inextricably linked with the service and intelligence they expect from us at Mantis.

Eleanor adds: “HdE and Mantis both have flourishing and growing operations in Bristol, supporting the incredible wealth of tech talent here, and our attitudes to change and innovation are very well matched.”

Ashley Wheeler, founder at HdE commented, “We’re delighted to partner with the team at Mantis PR, from the first project we worked on together, we quickly realised Mantis’ attitude and approach to helping the tech industry reflected what we are about at HdE. Together, our combined skillsets take us to another level in being able to offer a full service that will accelerate client success, joining the dots between strategy, marketing, creative and expert communications from our friends at Mantis.”
