Ben has had a successful career in business development before moving into digital marketing, working with some of Europe’s largest businesses through acquisition and account management.

Gareth SutcliffeCreative Director

We are #BlueSocial, a complete Social Media Management Agency, with offices in Central London and Reading.

#BlueSocial was created by current Creative Director Gareth Sutcliffe, as an event marketing tool, which used Social Media to facilitate the successful growth of festivals and brands. 

Gareth approached James Rix to develop #BlueSocial into a stand-alone Social Media management agency, within the Harrix Group of companies.

As #BlueSocial grew, our search for an outstanding and experienced Managing Director, led us to Ben Harrington at Wrap Digital.

In 2016, #BlueSocial and Wrap Digital merged to become a full service digital agency, with a keen focus on growth through Social Media Management.

 Combining the strengths of both teams and using strategic alliances within the Harrix Group, led to huge success and five-times growth in 2016. 

#BlueSocial’s dedicated team has a proven track record of successfully creating, managing and maintaining Social Media strategies for business and brands across a variety of sectors. 

We're good at what we do and we want to work with you!
