Oliver Group is launching a new office in Manchester as it aims to create a specialist hub in digital and SEO in the North.

The office, in Salford Quays, will be jointly used by Oliver and Aylesworth Fleming, the specialist property marketing agency Oliver bought last September. 

Nic Morris, the managing director of Aylesworth Fleming, will run the Manchester office and see his role extended to MD of Oliver Manchester. He reports to Sharon Whale, the UK chief executive of Oliver.

Oliver Manchester’s foundation clients include KPMG, financial services firm Wesleyan, and hotel group Carlson Rezidor. The office has a staff of 30.

Aylesworth Fleming has 120 staff with offices in Manchester, London, Bournemouth, Edinburgh, and Leicester. The company was started by Martin Aylesworth Syvertson and Matt Fleming, the company’s chief executive, who remains in charge.           

Martin said: "Manchester‘s economy is as big as Ireland’s. It’s also one of the most creative and innovative places in the UK, with its world-class universities and pool of highly talented individuals.

"When you add in its transport links to Leeds, Birmingham and Scotland, it’s clear this is a hugely exciting opportunity in Oliver’s expansion and growth,"
