We are delighted to be amongst the finalists for the
Family Business of the Year awards!
We are a family business founded by brothers Robert and Simon Barlow in 2011. Based in Bolton, we are a full service marketing agency working with local and national high-end businesses. Dedication and hard work resulted in significant growth over the years, both in the number of clients and members of staff, who we consider to be our extended family members.
As a family run marketing agency, honesty, loyalty, growth, respect, support and fun are the core values at the heart of the business. The success of the agency has very much been built on hard work, dedication and our consistent drive to deliver industry-leading projects with passion and ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking.
It is great news to be shortlisted for the awards. Robert Barlow, Managing Director at Relative Marketing said “I am delighted we are one of this year’s finalists for the E3 Family Business Awards, the hard work and ethos of the business has always been a high priority for Simon and myself and it looks to be paying off and getting great recognition! We are up against some really strong businesses, so we’ll have to be at our best for the final presentation.
As a family business we always want to hold strong relationships with people, be that with members of the internal team and external partners, clients, suppliers and anyone associated with our business. I believe it’s from our strong values and ethos we can proudly say we have an abundant of long-terms relationship throughout our business. And this is something we will ensure we endure, as the business continues to build and grow.“
Simon Barlow, Creative Director added “Being a family business is important to us, so much so we named our company Relative. Our tight knit community of colleagues extends beyond our team to include clients and suppliers. It may or may not be a coincidence that a number of our clients are family run businesses, but we are certainly happy about it. It’s great to see that so many businesses understand the importance of relationships and working together.”
The award winners will be announced at the E3 Business Awards gala dinner and ceremony in July 2018 at Bolton’s Macron Stadium – we’ll keep you posted!
