About Us

We are a leading full service marketing agency that delivers award winning, best practice marketing and branding services.

Full Service Agency

Mackman is a leading full service marketing agency based in the traditional market town of Sudbury in Suffolk. Established in 2003 by Dr Gemma Mackman and Paul Mackman, the owners created a marketing agency built upon core disciplines of market research and strategic marketing.

Mackman was originally based in the Dutch Quarter of Colchester, Essex but moved to Sudbury, Suffolk in 2006 as part of an expansion that included the addition of Bruce Burgoyne, Creative Director. The agency continued to flourish following a number of high profile marketing campaigns and brand strategies and the market research agency Mackman Research became a separate brand in 2008 based at the University of Essex. In 2009 James Royce, Technical Director joined the agency as it continued to expand its full service digital offering.

Together the Directors have continued to grow the business and a reputation for delivering outstanding customer service and value for money. Mackman has built an impressive client list and developed a skilled team of marketing specialists. Today Mackman is the agency of choice for premium brands seeking growth and a full service marketing approach.

An active member of Suffolk ProHelp, Mackman regularly supports numerous charities and community groups. Their services are provided pro-bono or heavily subsidised, providing otherwise unobtainable marketing services. With a host of achievements, Mackman is especially proud of winning a national Marketing Excellence Award from the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

Together we Grow

Mackman clients say that they value the agency’s no nonsense, can-do approach and the ability as a partner to use marketing to solve business challenges. The unifying strapline ‘together we grow’ speaks of the relationships that Mackman has with clients, suppliers, colleagues and the wider community.

Acting as an extension of an organisation, Mackman provides a broad range of marketing services executed with the responsiveness and professionalism you would expect from an internal department.
