Influencer marketing platform and agency TAKUMI is targeting growth in the North of the UK after agreeing a new partnership with More Media Sales, an independent multimedia sales house.

Manchester-based More Media has been tasked with “growing awareness of TAKUMI’S services outside of London and expanding its network into regional media communities”.

“Influencer marketing commands an increasingly significant portion of marketing budgets. Our partnership with More Media Sales will push new opportunities for brands and agencies in the North of the UK to drive consumer awareness, intent and loyalty through influencer marketing campaigns,” said Mary Keane-Dawson, TAKUMI’s Group CEO.

“It’s an exciting time to be partnering with TAKUMI, during a period of fast growth. Brands and agencies in the North of the UK have been crying out for an influencer marketing service that produces compelling, authentic content, and we are looking forward to introducing them to TAKUMI,” added Andy Garner, MoreMedia’s Managing Director.

TAKUMI, who hired MAD//Fest advisor Keane-Dawson as Group CEO last month, has embarked on an ambitious UK and US growth plan. The firm promises clients “branded influencer marketing at scale” through a hybrid agency and platform offering.
