Restlessly expanding. Constantly evolving.
In 1990, Tony Ainsworth and Tim Parkinson set up our agency. And we’ve been growing ever since. Their aim was to create an agency that clients wanted to work with and talented people wanted to work for and that philosophy has helped us grow steadily for over 30 years. By constantly adding new skills to our team, we’ve become one of the largest integrated agencies in the North West.
We have specialists in everything from filmmaking to social media, with staff in Preston and London. Many of our senior team have been with the agency since our early days. We’re proud to say a number of our clients have too.
Joined up thinking that’s more than the sum of its parts.
To us, every job’s a collaboration. We have a large team of specialists, so we can bring together experts with different skills right from the very start. We involve you in the process to establish the insights and business ambitions that will guide us. Then we work with you across our integrated services: solving problems, refining creative ideas, getting results and building long-term understanding.
Meet the team
A responsible business
When A&P was established in 1990 it had a simple vision to be the best. The best agency to work for. The best agency to partner or supply. The best agency a client would want to work with. This vision is very much alive today and is deep rooted in our culture. Traditional values such as hard work, respect, integrity and honesty play an integral part in our daily activity and our approach to people, the environment and the wider community.
Equality, diversity and inclusivity have been values at A&P long before they became popular buzz words. A long standing belief in doing the right thing, supporting worthy causes and a moral responsibility has created a family environment within the business where everyone can flourish.
We enjoy and thrive on an eclectic mixture of people, opinion and cultures and, as a result, we have a business built on solid foundations that offers longevity, security and where there is no glass ceiling. We are proud of our long term client and partner relationships which have been steadfastly built on our strong values and the shared commitment of our clients and our people.
As a business and individually we actively encourage and are involved in numerous charitable and community projects whether that be a cause close to someone’s heart, a local charity or a national charity day. We are totally committed to our people and their families. They are our lifeblood, our purpose and our future.
