Rufus Leonard joins Harbour’s collective of independent agency partners

The Harbour Collective today announced Rufus Leonard as its new design and technology partner, complementing its network of discrete, independent agencies.

Comprised of 14 specialist agencies (and in-turn 500+ experts), the collective of independents work together to combine skillsets across data and insight, media, content creation, engagement, experience, and production.

Rufus Leonard CEO, Laurence Parkes says, “As the Harbour Collective’s design and technology partner, we’re able to extend our team to help our clients access quality expertise from this trusted network. Meaning our clients benefit from both Rufus’ multidisciplinary team and a bespoke wider team of experts that can scale and flex to suit their needs. On the flip side, we’re ready to support our partners by applying our unique experience engineering approach, to help future clients deliver extraordinary digital experiences. This is a unique partnership that mirrors clients’ evolving need to work with partners that can deliver big thinking and quality execution while flexing painlessly as they continuously navigate change.”

Paul Hammersley, Managing Partner of Harbour says, “Harnessing digital to deliver the brand promise across the customer experience is critical; Rufus Leonard are an agency that truly makes this happen. At Harbour we use the talent at our disposal within the Collective to build the perfect team for our clients. We’re excited to welcome Rufus Leonard into this mix. They are innovators that successfully balance the edginess of an independent agency with the experience of a 30-year young, established business.”
