Cyber-Duck, a London-based digital agency with clients that include the Bank of England, has followed the footsteps of several digital firms that have established a base in Yorkshire. The company took the move in order to “provide a better service for our Northern clients and to offer services to more companies.”
A spokesman added: “However, this wasn’t the only reason Leeds was of particular interest to Cyber-Duck.
“It is widely regarded as the UK’s next big digital scene, and it is clear why. The city’s £64.6bn economy has attracted a lot of investment, which has seen several start-ups acquire funding.
“In 2017, PwC recognised Leeds as joint first in its Good Growth for Cities report, acknowledging that the city had a growth potential of 92 per cent. “HMRC also recognises Leeds’ potential – the organisation will relocate to Leeds in 2020, bringing with it 6,000 civil servants. NHS Digital is based in Leeds, and half of the North’s top ten digital agencies are based in the city. Cyber-Duck wants to contribute to this thriving digital scene.”
Siji Onabanjo, the growth director at Cyber-Duck, said: “Having built up a great reputation as a leading digital transformation agency in London, we made the carefully considered decision to open up our third office in Yorkshire to further support our growing number of Northern clients.
“Leeds was the obvious choice. We felt Leeds has a lot to offer Cyber-Duck, and Cyber-Duck has a lot to offer Leeds. We have transformed the digital presences of high-calibre clients like the Bank of England and Thomas Cook, and now we are keen to use our expertise to help more businesses excel with their digital ambitions.
“The Platform stood out as being a great place to begin our Leeds journey. We look forward to becoming a real part of the thriving Leeds digital community and using our expertise to further drive digital growth in the region.”
