Croud is a leading digital marketing agency

Operating from its offices in London, New York, Sydney and Shrewsbury, Croud uses its proprietary technology to support planning, automation and execution of digital marketing campaigns - and then scales this capability via its unique global network of 2,400 on-demand digital marketing specialists, working with a diverse client portfolio including Vans, AXA IM, Virgin Trains, The North Face, Intuit, The AA, Hiscox, and IWG. In its latest financial year, Croud generated £15.4 million in revenue. It is now extending its footprint across the USA, winning major brands as clients such as The Athletic and Audible.

In November 2019 Croud secured a £30 million minority investment from LDC. The deal is supporting Croud to further accelerate global growth via its innovative service delivery that combines its proprietary technology with Croud's worldwide network of on-demand digital experts and also support further development of Croud's proprietary technology products and expansion of its range of services. LDC is backing the existing management team led by Co-Founders Luke Smith and Ben Knight.

But this is just the beginning - we underwent a rigorous process in finding the right partner for us and looked at several options, but LDC share our vision and offer the ideal platform for us to continue on our mission - which very much remains to become the world's finest digital technology and communications group.
