PHA X MCG Banner

Today we are excited to announce our MCG agency has been acquired by The PHA Group.

The PHA Group is one of the UK’s top independent PR, Digital, Creative, and Crisis Management agencies, creating campaigns with meaningful messages to drive real impact. Our consumer, corporate and reputation specialists deliver transformational results for clients, including household brands, international corporations, ambitious start-ups and individuals with a story to tell.

MCG is The PHA Group’s second acquisition, following the purchase of digital agency Red Hot Penny 20 months ago, and will bolster the agency’s growing regional presence.

The PHA’s Group Managing Directors, Shelley Frosdick and Stuart Skinner will oversee MCG’s integration and issued a joint statement: “We are delighted to bring MCG into the group and strengthen our growing regional presence. We are committed to long-term investment in regional growth, in particular the North of England where we have seen growth, talent and client opportunity in equal measure. It has been a pleasure dealing with Christine, Sarah and Kate through the acquisition process and we look forward to building further on the strong client base and reputation they have created.”

MCG co-founder Christine Mortimer commented: “Sarah, Kate and I have been lucky enough to work with some incredible people – both our clients and our teams – over the past 22 years and we are delighted to see MCG become part of such a brilliant, award-winning agency.”
