It’s an exciting time for Cantarus, a leading Manchester-based digital agency, as it celebrates its 20th birthday on 18th March 2023. This milestone comes just as the agency recently rebranded with a new website and brand identity.

Cantarus first launched in 2003, when CEO Lee Adams left his consultancy role in a large tech company and ventured out with his brother Darrin and a mutual friend Justin, to found the agency. What began as a three-person start-up business has since grown into one of the largest digital agencies in the North of England, with numerous awards under its belt and an ever-growing list of global clients. 

The agency recently unveiled its new website and vibrant new brand identity, which has been extremely well-received by both clients and prospects. To mark the occasion, the agency is hosting a birthday party for its existing staff and Cantarus alumni. 

Reflecting on the company’s success, Lee Adams, Chief Executive Officer, comments: 

“We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved over the past two decades. Cantarus has come a long way since its inception in 2003, and we owe our success to the hard work and dedication of our talented team. We’ve worked with some fantastic and prestigious clients over the years, from WHSmith and Worldpay, to the British Army and NHS Charities Together, helping them to achieve their digital ambitions.” 

The very first Cantarus employee was Mike Cundall, now a Director and Chief Operating Officer of the business. Cundall says: 

“It’s been incredible to see how far the business has evolved since I joined in 2009. The business is almost unrecognisable from those original days in our Northwich offices, and it’s been such a privilege to work with our talented team during this time, helping hundreds of our clients deliver on their digital ambitions.” 

Adams continues, “We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our clients and employees, past and present, for their support over the years and for helping make Cantarus the successful business it is today. Here’s to the next 20 years of innovation and growth!”
