CPL joins forces with CenturyOne

We are delighted to announce that CPL is combining with leading content marketing agency CenturyOne to form CPL One Group.

The combined group will become an even more powerful force in the agencies’ specialist sectors, which include print and digital publishing for the membership and arts sectors, media sales and marketing communications.

CPL One Group is made up of three brands – CPL, CenturyOne and Cabbells. The combined team of around 70 employees, plus freelance support, will continue to operate from offices in Cambridge and St Albans, and will share more than 30 retained clients between them. The combined annual revenues of the group are on course to be £10 million.

As part of the deal, CenturyOne and Cabbells managing director Sarah Simpson (pictured above right) becomes a shareholder of CPL One and joins the CPL One Group board, which is headed up by CPL managing director Mike Sewell (above left).

“Together, CPL, CenturyOne and Cabbells have the potential to become a major force in the sectors in which we specialise,” said Sarah. “We share similar philosophies and this move allows us to create a strong and exciting combined platform for future growth.”

“I am delighted to welcome Sarah and her team to the CPL One Group,” added Mike. “In the short term it will be business as usual as we continue to focus on delivering a great service for our clients. In the longer term we are confident that our employees, along with current and future clients, will benefit from the shared expertise and experience of the combined group.”
