Huddersfield’s oldest design agency snapped up

Huddersfield’s oldest design agency, Worthington Brown, has been bought out by marketing agency, Hollywood Agency.

Worthington Brown was launched by Neil Worthington in 1990, making it the oldest marketing agency in Huddersfield which provides design and creative services to businesses from small start-ups and SME’s to national brands.

It has now been acquired by Hollywood Agency, a social media, branding and web agency based in Holmfirth.

Hollywood Agency was founded by Erika Maybury who set up the business in 2016 when she was just 19 years old. The Agency has since gone on to cater for clients in the UK to further afield in Europe and the USA with ambitious plans for growth.

Speaking on the acquisition, founder and Managing Director of Hollywood Agency, Erika Maybury said: “We’ve always worked closely with Worthington Brown and we’ve had our eye on them as a potential buy-out for a while, their client base is very impressive, and their work is the epitome of creativity.

“We’re delighted to have it as part of our agency and combine our shared expertise to offer our clients the best solutions. Our aim at Hollywood Agency is to be the biggest and most creative agency in the area and to continue growing both organically and through further acquisition.”

Neil Worthington, owner of Worthington Brown, will continue in a role at Hollywood Agency as creative director.

Speaking on the acquisition he said: “When I first founded Worthington Brown it was all about youth, energy and bags of creativity. I’m thrilled that Erika has chosen to buy Worthington Brown and take the business forward with this very same ethos.

“The bar I set for a buyer was extremely high and I know we made the right choice with Hollywood Agency. Their fantastic team and reputation speak for themselves. My role at Hollywood Agency is to give creative direction and maintain relationships with our clients as we begin this exciting transition.”

Speaking on Neil’s role at Hollywood Agency, Erika said: “Having Neil as our creative director means we will benefit from his wealth of branding experience and existing clients will continue to be serviced by the same team, ensuring continuity while also affording them with new innovative solutions that will grow their business.”
