Posted on 4/16/2018 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

SilverHub Media Group, which has become a vibrant new player in the editorial and assignments space since its launch in 2016, today announces that it has combined its editorial and assignment brand, SilverHub, with Wonderhatch, a freshly launched photographic and film assignment business.
The combined agency, which will initially operate under both the SilverHub and the Wonderhatch brands, now becomes one of the largest assignment enterprises in the UK with an impressive roster of clients including the FA, The Jockey Club, Time Inc, Ford Motor Company, Marriott and Gordon Ramsay Group. It all comes together under one roof in West London with a new management team consisting of the co-founders of the new enterprise in Simon Owen (Wonderhatch), Patrick Gather (Wonderhatch) and Marc Webbon (SilverHub).
Marc Webbon says “Right from our very first meetings with Simon, Patrick and the team at Wonderhatch, it has been clear that we share the same values and the same goals – we are all driven to deliver exceptional work and to help our customers have a much more engaging relationship with content.”

Simon Owen confirms “Bringing SilverHub and Wonderhatch together is really good news for both our clients and our creatives, giving us the scale to service both groups to a higher level and across bigger projects. Offering a significantly broader suite of services across the spectrum of photography, film and technology will ensure some really exciting conversations.”

Patrick Gather adds “The digital content industry is evolving rapidly and we believe that this strategic joining of forces will strengthen our ability to adapt to that change and continue to provide our clients with the specialist service they now expect. In particular, bringing film to SilverHub’s clients will be extremely exciting and we can’t wait to get started!”
