Volpa, one of Scotland’s top independent marketing agencies, is realising its ambitious expansion plans with the opening of a new office in Dundee.
The Perth based full service agency is opening a new office this month in The Flour Mill, an exciting and dynamic new co-work and serviced office space in the heart of Dundee’s creative quarter.
With a 30% increase in staff over the last eighteen months, Volpa’s new office comes hot on the heels of Volpa’s founder and CEO Tricia Fox recently completing the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses course, designed to provide leaders of high growth small businesses with high quality, practical education and business support to enable them to effectively scale up their businesses.
With a significant amount of Volpa’s clients based in Dundee and North Fife, including Dundee Heritage Trust, Water’s Edge, The Carling Property Group and St Andrews Aquarium, the move is being heralded as the obvious next step for the agency, who has tasked its Head of Publicity, Fraser Kirk, with heading up the Dundee venture.
Tricia Fox, CEO of Volpa, commented: “This is a really exciting time for us as an agency as we look to increase our growth and begin to realise our ambitious expansion plans for Volpa. We are currently one of the fastest growing agencies in the Tayside region and the new office is just the start of our plans to expand our ‘bricks and mortar’ footprint geographically, which will see us firmly established as one of the UK’s leading independent agencies.
“Dundee was the natural choice for a second office. We are already working with a good many clients in Dundee and North Fife and we are mindful of the burgeoning business opportunities that continue to open up due to the city’s recent transformation. It is a fantastic time to be in Dundee, particularly with the opening of the new V&A Museum.”
Founded by entrepreneur and CEO Tricia Fox from a spare bedroom at home in 2002, Volpa is now a full service marketing agency boasting dedicated strategy, publicity, design and digital departments. Specialists in the tourism, hospitality and food and drink sectors, Volpa has received a raft of awards over the years, including three times winner of the Scottish Event Award for Best Marketing Strategy and was recently shortlisted for seven CIPR Pride Awards including Small Consultancy of the Year.
