GS buys Scottish agency Talented

Golley Slater has acquired Edinburgh agency Talented for an undisclosed sum, with plans to expand the business to offer direct and promotional marketing.

Talented MD Ian Dommett will continue to head up the team as MD of Golley Slater North. GS plans to double the operation from five to ten staff within a year.

Talented was formed in 2000 and has a fee income of just under £500,000. Clients include the Territorial Army, British Army and the SNP.

GS group CEO Chris Lovell said: 'In order to operate effectively in Scotland we have to be there. Scottish media contacts are crucial, and that is what Talented has.'

The acquisition means GS has ten offices, five of which have been opened in the past 18 months.
