Who we are & where we've been

Our company

The best measure of success is growth

Active Profile began at a kitchen table in 2004. The first project our founder Anna Heyes worked on was a strategic marketing plan for a small tech firm – and strategy still underpins everything we do. We develop and deliver communications strategies for brands and tie all our work to their business goals, ensuring everything we do pushes them forward. Today, we’re a fast-growing agency with offices in Liverpool, Manchester and London.
