Concise Media unveils its new branding and website!


Concise Media is extremely excited to share its new brand identity and launch its new website.

The brand identity refresh demonstrates a step-change for Concise and represents its evolution into a full-service commercial assurance specialist. The website now clearly identifies the business’ three main services of assurance, research and consultancy, along with the fantastic team and solid reputation that Concise has built with clients since opening its doors in 2012.

Kevin Waller, Founder & CEO comments: “I’m incredibly proud to finally be launching our new website and new brand identity. It’s been a long time coming and something I’ve delayed due to us being so busy building the business. These last few months, although incredibly challenging in so many ways, have given us the opportunity to really focus on this project and I’m absolutely delighted with the result.”

Kelly Haslehurst, Marketing & Communications Consultant added: “Having worked with Kevin since he launched Concise, I’ve seen a seismic shift from where he started to where the business is today. It’s amazing to be able to reflect both the impressive and consistent growth – and the increased confidence that comes with it – through Concise’s brand strategy and communications activity.”

Concise has enjoyed a significant increase in the pace of its growth over the past 18 months and has become the go-to professional services business within the UK media market. The business intends to focus on continued growth and development to capitalise on the foundations it has put in place with its recent move to new Fitzrovia offices and this refreshed branding and new website.

Watch this space for further exciting developments coming very soon!

Concise Media is excited to announce that it has entered into a formal partnership agreement with Bouvet, a Norwegian consultancy that designs, develops and advises on IT solutions and digital communications. Bouvet has over 1,500 employees in Norway and Sweden and is listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange. Bouvet will be responsible for system design and development across all of Concise’s services including Assurance, Research and Consultancy.

Kevin Waller, CEO and Founder of Concise, comments: “This is fantastic news as Bouvet has the experience and competence to help Concise securely scale our technology platform as we continue to expand our customer base. We have built a great working relationship, so I am delighted by this partnership and anticipate successful times ahead.”

Matt Groom, Leader for Technology and System Development at Bouvet, adds: “Working with Concise is an exciting opportunity for us. There is plenty of room for further systems development – both at Concise and externally within the media sector – and we look forward to exploring these together with Kevin and his team.”

Founded in 2012, Concise Media has grown significantly to now have 20 clients and 13 staff, with the enviable track record of a 100% retention rate on both.

Concise Media announces today that it has made some changes to its top team to support the continued growth of the business following the addition of several highly established new clients over recent months.

The changes will see Kevin Waller move from Managing Director and Founder to CEO and Founder. Graeme Symon has been invited to join the business full-time as Managing Director having previously held Non-Executive Director status. This change is effective immediately to help drive the direction of the Company and support Kevin.

Kevin Waller comments: “I identified the need of greater headroom with Concise to focus on strategic direction and continued client success. Whilst the Board has always been hands-on and built on a partner model, the significant increase in pace within the business demanded a shift in responsibilities to help fuel further growth of Concise. Whilst 2020 has been an unprecedented year so far and has seen us continue to win new clients, the lockdown gave us the time and space to fully work through this process. We are now in a fantastic place to continue growing the business over the years ahead.”

Graeme is an established operator having held multiple senior roles at media and technology companies. Well-versed in building realistic and successful commercial outcomes, he joined the Board in 2018 and shares Kevin’s aspirations for what Concise can achieve.

Graeme Symon comments: “I am thrilled to be joining Concise at this period of the company’s history. I have experienced first-hand what the Concise team can do under Kevin, having been a client. To now be at the sharp end of the company’s mission is a privilege and I look forward to great success.”

Mark Winkler, founder of Red Earth Advisors has been invited to join the Board of Concise in the capacity of CFO. Mark, formally of Deloitte, is a Chartered Accountant and has worked closely with companies in the UK and internationally, providing financial, strategic and governance support. He has helped businesses who are experiencing rapid organic growth and anticipate corporate finance support. He joins the Board from the 1st September.

Commenting on the changes, Mark adds: “I am very excited to be part of Concise. I see a real opportunity in what they offer to business and how their Services suite can grow. I am looking forward to being part of the mission over the coming years.”

Emma Waller joins Concise’s team full-time as Company Secretary and Head of Finance & Administration. Emma, previously worked at Channel 4 and Space and Time, and has been an integral part of the business as a member of the Board of Directors since its inception. In this role, she can now create the structure Concise needs to fulfil its increasing administrative and operational requirements to the high standards that the company has always set.

Emma says: “I’ve been part of the business since day one and this is the perfect time to take on more responsibility to help Concise reach its full potential given the business’ growing needs for a formal Finance and Administration function.”

Founded in 2012, Concise Media has grown significantly to now have 20 clients and 13 staff, with the enviable track record of a 100% retention rate on both.

Concise Media is excited to announce that it has secured fantastic new office space to accommodate the changing needs of its business.

The new office is in the heart of Fitzrovia on Newman Street meaning that the team remains based in Central London but now has a more spacious environment both for staff and to host clients.

Kevin Waller, Founder of Concise comments: “We needed a new office base as whilst our Carlisle Street building has been great, Concise has grown significantly over the past couple of years, and we need more flexibility to suit our evolving needs. This space is perfect so thanks to Sam Bendel at WorkThere for helping us to secure it a couple of weeks before the lockdown began. We were meant to be moving in today (4th May) and I know I speak for the whole team when I say that we’re looking forward to returning to London and making that happen. In the meantime, we’re all working from home so please contact us if you need us. Stay safe.”

The Concise team will be moving into the Newman Street premises as soon as the current restrictions are lifted and it is safe to do so.
