ovgDigital marketing agency Online Ventures Group has been placed within Prolific North’s top 50 list of digital agencies in the North and has been revealed as the youngest of all of the companies listed.

The list, which has been devised by publishing company Prolific North, includes some very big names from the digital industry, all of which have been ranked based on financials from Companies House and information supplied by the agencies themselves. A number of services are covered including search, PPC, website development, content creation, mobile and e-commerce.

James Welch, CTO of Online Ventures Group, said: “Prolific North’s top 50 list is a great idea and we’re thrilled to have been included in it. Since OVG began trading in 2012, we’ve managed to become one of the most influential digital agencies in Manchester and have achieved great things in the short space of time we’ve been active. 

“While there are some huge names on Prolific North’s list, we have the unique honour of being the youngest company. This shows precisely how far we’ve come in such a short space of time. We have very big plans for the future and expect 2014 to be an even better year for us than 2013 was.”

OVG ranked in 34th position on the list, with the second youngest company – Mosquito Digital – to have been founded in 2010 and be in 50th place. Meanwhile, the oldest company is CSI Media, which dates from 1989 and came in at number 17.
