Welcome to Four! We are one of the leading independent integrated agencies in the UK and the Gulf. We’ve grown from just seven to more than 200 people since we launched in 2001. Our integrated services now span PR to digital and marketing to media planning & buying across a broad range of sectors. We deliver national and international programmes from our two hubs in the UK and the Gulf. We’ve been named Holmes Report UK Agency of the Year and MEPRA Agency of the Year in the Middle East. And we are one of (if not the) most successful UK integrated start-ups of the last 20 years.
