MonkeyFish Marketing are proud to join The Hatch Group as two agencies become one
MonkeyFish Marketing, a long established digital agency of 12 years has become part of The Hatch Group in a bid to grow its business nationally and globally.
With a variety of brands, strengths and talent under one roof, MonkeyFish and The Hatch have worked closely as partners for a number of years, fulfilling a range of solutions from digital marketing, advertising, creative and software, to full spectrum multimedia campaigns.
Phill Monk, founder of MonkeyFish on the coming together and exciting times ahead:
“Having worked so well together over the years, with experience and talent which you rarely find in one place, officially becoming a part of The Hatch Group is a natural progression for MonkeyFish and for myself personally.
The way the 4 owner/founders (which I call the Fab 4!) all came together with our own separate businesses with distinct specialisms means we now have a dream team with a strong portfolio of brands, broad range of clients and amazing in house resources, which will operate as one super-unit”.
A bit about the ‘Fab 4’ and The Hatch Group’s new leadership structure
Phill Monk – Founder at MonkeyFish – Sales Director (The Hatch / MonkeyFish)
With a passion and track record for search engine marketing and sales, Phill set up his digital marketing business, MonkeyFish Marketing 12 years ago. Over time his team evolved into a full service web agency, designing, developing and marketing businesses of all shapes and sizes.
Graham Slater – Founder of The Hatch – Creative Director (The Hatch / MonkeyFish)
Graham is a true creative with unbelievable talent and a sparkling brand portfolio. After founding The Hatch as his own freelance brand, he joined up with Phill to become part of a wider team and strengthen the MonkeyFish design arm.
Tony Bury – Founder of Biddable Media – Operations Director (The Hatch / MonkeyFish)
Tony is a Pay Per Click (PPC) specialist and has been working in paid advertising since before Google Ads even existed! He’s not that old though, honestly. With a keen eye for conversions, performance and problem solving, Tony has experience in running digital agencies, working for software platforms and eventually created his own specialist PPC brand 5 years ago, Biddable Media.
Steven Hickey – Managing Director (The Hatch / MonkeyFish)
Having worked in technology for 10 years running the UK’s largest ecommerce platform, Steven’s experience in software, marketing and business development saw him leave an esteemed role in the tech industry to take the leap and work for himself 3 years ago. Starting out as a consultant, he quickly developed working relationships with Phill, his close friend and Tony, who has worked with Steven to great effect in the past.
Also joining the leadership team as Technical Director is Michael Rowley, a long serving engineer/team leader at MonkeyFish and Senior Architect at The Hatch. Michael’s background in cyber security has seen him flourish into a full stack developer and talented systems architect over the past 10 years and makes him the perfect person to look after all things technical at The Hatch Group.
Brands under The Hatch Group banner now include MonkeyFish Marketing, The Hatch, Biddable Media, Evolv Technologies, The Printrunner, The Sale Network, Mercharoo and other exciting projects.
With clients in a diverse range of sectors including retail, food, travel, technology, manufacturing, engineering and more, The Hatch Group now boast a range of full service solutions for businesses ranging from SMEs to multinationals and big brands such as Emirates, Graham & Brown, The Police, World Travel Holdings, B&Q, Ikea and Ted Baker.
