Our History

Marketing Shropshire since 2009

Rob Hughes founded Reech in 2009 with a love for all things marketing, a redundancy pay-out of £1,000 burning a hole in his pocket (and a very understanding wife!). But the mission of Reech has always been the same: to offer the growing hub of booming Shropshire businesses a genuine local alternative to working with city-based agencies. And that’s exactly what we do.

Over the years we’ve expanded our skills, team, and services to provide a full-service marketing solution for businesses throughout Shropshire and beyond.

Our journey...so far!

Reech Media is born.

Rob launches Reech with just a Mac and himself for company! Armed with his portfolio, he knocked on doors to highlight brand, design, marketing and web services to businesses in Shropshire.

Our first office (kind of!).

Within a year, Rob had moved into a 1-person office (cozy!), complete with a shared boardroom access on a month-by-month rolling contract. Reech had officially moved out of the house!

Making our mark in Shropshire.

We moved into our own office accommodation in Leaton Knolls and become a finalist in the Shropshire Chamber Business Awards. Rob also hired his first employee, a graphic design apprentice.

Growing teams – and projects!

By 2013 we had employed a further 3 team members in design, marketing and account management and continued to win new projects, predominately for clients in the leisure and tourism sectors.

Becoming full-service.

We continued to grow as an agency in 2014, building on our portfolio services in our mission to become full-service – and attracting larger businesses (mainly outside of Shropshire) as a result!

Time for a makeover!

We rebranded to reposition ourselves and increase our brand recognition within Shropshire. Our red changed to our now signature pink to match our personality as an agency and our service offering.

Hello Shrewsbury!

We recruited 4 more employees and moved offices to Shrewsbury Business Park. We started working on delivering traditional and digital long-term services to clients and launched our Reech Relationship service.

Paul, Dena & Rob
Getting pro.

Dena Evans (Creative Director) and Paul Corbett (Chairman) joined our board, and we established our first senior management team. We also expanded our office space, establishing a dedicated photo/video service – the only agency in Shropshire to offer this!

The world reopens – and we get busy!

2021 was our busiest year on record with businesses reopening, relaunching, and re-evaluating their marketing strategies. We saw our services expand further – along with our portfolio of clients.
