Global software company acquires digital marketing agency with plans for nationwide growth

Investor: CEO of ICX4 Paul Ashby

Digital marketing agency ATTAIN is celebrating coming of age with nationwide growth plans following an acquisition by global software company ICX4.

The Wigan-based agency, which is in its 21st year, has developed a client base across the region – from airports to football clubs – by delivering data, digital and design services, and offering customers a dedicated data management platform.

CEO of ICX4 Paul Ashby, based in Cheshire, said: “We are taking the tried and tested model ATTAIN has developed for just over two decades in Wigan, Lancashire and Greater Manchester to reach even more people across the North West and the country as a whole.

“Core to its success to date has been a focus on building a reputation as an agency that really cares about its clients’ businesses – this will remain central to our way of working as we grow.”


The company is investing in its team by recruiting a client development manager, technical manager and account manager this Autumn to prepare for national expansion by the end of 2021.

Commercial manager Jackie Salt, who has been with ATTAIN for 10 years, said: “Our growth plans are not in exchange of our values – and the emphasis we place on treating our clients’ businesses as if they were our own, as well as what we do for the communities that we work in.

“We are an agency – but we pride ourselves on being an agency that really cares and develops equal partnerships with our clients.”
