We’re Merging!

Bear Creative merges with Pleece & Co

We are delighted to announce that we – Bear Creative – have merged with Brighton-based agency, Pleece & Co (P&C).

P&C’s owner, Gary Pleece said “I’m delighted to merge with Bear Creative. It gives us more creative and digital resources and keeps the business in the family name, with my son Monty now a partner in the company. I will still be involved with my existing clients, and some new Bear ones, and Zoë Clark, a superb client services manager who has worked with P&C for the past year, will continue to manage our clients so there is continuity and a seamless transition,” Gary continued.

P&C has been in operation since 2011, providing strategic marketing, planning, and delivery services for its clients over the years, including the NHS, Sussex County Cricket Club, West Ham United, Kings College London, Federation of Awarding Bodies, Brighton & Hove City Council, English’s of Brighton and many others.

Their strategetic, and general, marketing experience perfectly complements our focus on creative, digital marketing.

Tom Harper-Ward, founder of Bear Creative said “This is an excellent move for us as we are looking to expand and establish a presence in Brighton. Monty will move back to Brighton to work on the operation there, whilst the London side of Bear will continue in its present office in Essex and London, with Monty continuing to work across our existing clients too.  

It’s also amazing to have someone with Gary’s experience helping us with the strategic marketing side of the business as it adds another dimension to our offer. I’m really excited!” Tom continued.

The merger will come into functional operation from February 1st, 2023.
