Nelson Bostock Unlimited has a strong heritage in the B2B and technology sectors, working with global and challenger brands. This acquisition further strengthens our offer in a market where communications and marketing are converging, enabling us to offer a full range of services from brand building and reputation management through to lead generation and sales.”

Faye Hawkins, Managing Director, First Base Unlimited added: “Having already partnered closely with Nelson Bostock Unlimited to deliver best-in-class marketing and technology solutions for shared clients, this move was a natural next step. We’re excited to become part of the Unlimited Group; its scale and impressive client list, together with Nelson Bostock Unlimited’s expertise in delivering communications programmes for business and technology brands, provides a perfect home for First Base and a launch pad for future growth.”
