Back to Barefoot Media

Voice Communications acquires Barefoot Media

Published February 2nd, 2023

Leading B-Corp PR and Marketing agency, Voice Communications, has acquired specialist communications firm Barefoot Media as part of an exciting new chapter for the business which will see it expand its team and services.

The two like-minded agencies, Voice and Barefoot Media, share similar values, making Voice the obvious custodian for the brand. 

Jim Michell, Managing Director of Barefoot Media, says: “It was hugely important to me that I found the right business to take over Barefoot, our team, and our clients. It was essential that the new owner would be a like-minded agency which shared our values and ethos, and I have found that in Voice. I’m so proud of everything our team has achieved over the years, and I’m excited to see what they will go on to do in the future as part of a B-Corp accredited company with the fantastic team at Voice.”

A B-Corporation is a purpose-driven business, dedicated to creating positive impacts for their communities, teams, clients and the environment. This is an ethos that has always been part of the fabric of Voice – an agency which has successfully grown with a core set of values at its heart, thanks to its Founder, Nichola Cain.

With offices based in both Essex and Cornwall and a hub in Bristol, Voice works collaboratively with businesses and organisations to amplify their message and highlight their purpose through PR, marketing, and digital services – ultimately making a positive difference. With the inclusion of three Barefoot team members, Voice’s services set to expand to also include email marketing and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) work.

Working with clients as an extension of their team, Voice provides services to organisations throughout the UK in a range of industries, including green energy, construction, hospitality, tech, not for profit, home improvement, recycling and waste management, travel and leisure, and the charity sector. 

Nichola Cain, Managing Director of Voice Communications, says: “Welcoming the Barefoot team to Voice is an important milestone for Voice. We are excited to be continuing the great work that Jim and his fantastic team have carried out over the years and begin this new chapter. I instantly connected with Jim and the more I got to know him, the more this felt like the right decision. 

“This is a really amazing opportunity for the business, as we look to grow and expand our services. Barefoot has an outstanding reputation and has worked on many high-profile clients within the hospitality, construction and events sector. I am really proud that Voice is the chosen custodian for the brand, and I am really looking forward to seeing what the future holds for us.”
