Incite, a UK research agency, has relocated its offices from Covent Garden to a larger premises in High Holborn, Central London.
The firm had previously stayed in their base for approximately 10 years when it was founded in 2000 by directors Elaine Kent-Smith and Sid Simmons.
Incite recently hired three new executives, Alex Webb, Justyna Gestwa and Mark Yeomans, to join their 28-strong team, also turning over £7.4m this year, almost £2m above £5.65m in 2008/09.
Managing director Roger Banks believes that this new move represents the expansion of the company and its growing success. He said, “Incite has had an exceptionally good year and since 2007 our turnover has more than doubled. During this time we’ve also built a formidable team of research specialists and have expanded our portfolio of work with market leading brands.”
Incite’s client base includes BT, Samsung, Royal Mail, Cadbury and Capital One.
High Holborn has also seen further office activity with the recent opening of a new business centre adjacent to Chancery Lane station. A 10 year lease term has been agreed for a total of 20,000 sq ft, as well as a full refurbishment and re-fit to bring it up to the high standards associated with Orega properties.
Speaking about the location, joint managing director of Orega, Zach Douglas remarked upon how High Holborn was ideally suited for attracting demand from financial, research and legal occupiers, “to whom the flexibility of our offer is likely to appeal.”
