Wake Media Partners with Leading UK Marcomms Agency to Strengthen Service Offering

April 16, 2020

Specialist Maritime and Offshore media agency Wake Media today announced a new strategic partnership with leading UK integrated communications group Bray Leino, a move that supports its growth ambitions to evolve from a media agency into an all-encompassing, full-service maritime marketing provider.

Based in London with over two decades of industry experience, Wake Media represents some of the most recognised leading brands in the maritime industry. UK-based global agency Bray Leino offers a uniquely broad set of expertise across strategy, creative, design, digital, social, direct response, events, and workplace learning for both the business and consumer sectors. This allows the agency to deliver more value to its clients and is one of the reasons Bray Leino ranks amongst the Top 3 UK B2B agencies.

The collaboration with Bray Leino will allow Wake Media to offer an enhanced portfolio of marketing services. As a result, retained clients and prospective future clients will be able to leverage both Wake Media’s wide-ranging in-house expertise and Bray Leino’s marketing capabilities, particularly their experience in consumer and business marketing across multiple industries.


Through the partnership, Wake Media will be able to provide a broad range of marketing services that can be tailored to suit any maritime company, big or small. For the growing number of companies blending Business-to-Business (B2B) and Business-to-Consumer (B2C) marketing, this move will enable Wake Media to bring B2C methodology, experience and expertise into a B2B Maritime space, allowing clients to capitalise on all modern marketing methods available, under one virtual roof.

Steve Parks, Managing Director at Wake Media commented on the partnership: “Partnering with Bray Leino enables us to be adaptable and serve the forward-thinking companies we believe in. Intelligent partnerships such as this will allow us to extend our marketing capacity as needed, with the assurance and added benefit of utilising our unprecedented network of maritime connections and Marcoms know-how.”

Steve continued: “With everything we do virtually under one roof, we have the ability to plan, execute and report on all marketing and communications activity – providing guaranteed strategic alignment throughout.”

Kate Cox, CEO at Bray Leino commented: “Both Bray Leino and Wake Media have a raft of maritime experience and an incredible set of clients. Together we have one simple, common aim – to ensure our clients succeed. Our combined offer provides our existing maritime clients and new prospects with a world class solution that will supercharge their marketing and commercial performance. This partnership is very exciting indeed.”
