Unleash The Leopard: Two Leading Midlands Agencies Join Forces Plus Announce Launch Of New Strategy Practice

29 March 2023

Leading Birmingham agencies, spottydog communications and Big Cat, have teamed up and created a brand-new strategy practice, Leopard Co.

As two great businesses with excellent reputations, spottydog and Big Cat will continue to operate working with clients within their respective core strengths of PR, social media, content marketing and creative campaigns. 

With a new bigger team and enhanced capability, CEO of spottydog communications, Rachel Roberts, and CEO of Big Cat Agency, Anthony Tattum, have launched a third offer — a new dedicated strategy practice called Leopard Co. 

As one of the largest marketing communications consultancies in the Midlands, Leopard Co offers clients a full-service integrated marketing communications solution.

Utilising both teams’ specialisms — plus Rachel’s professional expertise as Vice President of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) and Anthony’s professional expertise as City Head of Institute for Practitioners in Advertising (IPA) for Birmingham and the Midlands — the company will focus on helping businesses dealing with big problems caused by proactive and reactive change. This change includes merger, acquisition, reconfiguration, investment and transformation. 

With communications being the bridge to help organisations change, translating the business strategy from concept to reality, Leopard Co aims to develop the communications strategy and deliver the tactics that enables organisations to make that change happen. 

This will be delivered through the company’s seven strategy service areas: reputation management, communications strategy, culture change, behaviour change, internal communications, operational change and crisis management. 

Celebrating with a special launch party at The Grand Hotel in Birmingham, co-CEOs of Leopard Co, Rachel and Anthony, will emphasise the business’ commitment to Birmingham. 

The businesses have been around the city for over 30 years combined, supporting the next generation of talent and encouraging people to come into the city centre to boost the local economy. This ethos remains at the forefront of Leopard Co. 

Since joining forces, the company has already made an impact by kickstarting its work with Gambling Commission, Environment Agency and Gowling WLG, as well as welcoming new team members to the team.

Commenting on the new company, Co-CEOs Rachel Roberts and Anthony Tattum said: “Offering existing and new clients a fully integrated marketing communications solution is what Leopard Co is all about — and we’re so excited to finally unleash Leopard Co to the world after almost a year of planning. 

“Both spottydog and Big Cat have a long history in providing strategic communications consultancy and now, as one big team, we are looking forward to packaging this capability to create our dedicated Leopard Co strategy practice. 

“At the heart of Leopard Co though is the team. Our priority through creating this new company has been supporting our incredible people and we can’t wait to expand the leap by welcoming new starters following our influx of client wins.”
