Anita Pace, MD, and Jess Clark, Business Development Director

The Hull-based companies have come together as Pace and will serve clients from Pace’s office in the Fruit Market area of the city.

Pace’s clients include sustainable cleaning brand Bio-D, Yorkshire housing developer Beal Homes, luxury holiday home manufacturer Victory Leisure Homes and international waste plastic road company MacRebur. Blab’s clients include global green logistics provider GTS UK, independent Renault truck dealer Thompson Commercials, e-commerce brand Naturewall and multi-award-winning Great Newsome Brewery.

Anita Pace, managing director of Pace, said: “I’m delighted to be expanding the business. The skills and experience of the Blab team complement our Pace offering, making the new, bigger ‘Team Pace’ better equipped than ever to deliver fantastic results for all our clients as we support them in building their brands and engaging their target markets.”

Jess Clark, director of Blab, is Pace’s new Business Development Director. She said: “I am so proud of what Blab has achieved and am excited for our next chapter.

“The expanded team, with its wider range of expertise, is great news for our existing clients and I’m looking forward to all the opportunities being part of a larger agency will offer in terms of both business growth and development opportunities for team members.”

The coming together of the two agencies follows a successful seventh year of trading for Pace. The agency now employs 27 people.

Anita continued: “This is a really exciting development for us. To continue to grow during such challenging times is a testament to the hard work of the team and the quality of the results we deliver for our clients.”
