Prime Minister visits Linney

Theresa May visited Linney on 10 May as part of her General Election tour.

Theresa May met members of the Linney family and directors, then spent time chatting to staff from different areas of the business and members of the media following her on the election trail.

The Prime Minister wanted to see, at first hand, a prime example of how East Midlands businesses are adapting to the modern age.

Linney is a ‘restless’ business that’s evolved from a bookshop and newspaper publisher into an integrated, multichannel marketing group.

And, as the Midlands’ biggest creative hub, we’re proud to set an example of regeneration in an area previously highly dependent on heavy industry.



Speaking to a gathering of Linney employees this afternoon, the Prime Minister said she’d been fascinated to hear how the business had repeatedly reinvented itself.

At Linney, we plan, create, make and activate print and digital marketing campaigns for some of the UK and world’s best-known brands.

“There’s nothing quite like it in the region,” said Miles Linney, our Chief Executive.  “All the skills, expertise and facilities needed to engage any audience in any channel are here, all under one roof.”

Our Chairman Nick Linney said: “We’re creating new jobs for a new age – a new Mansfield.”
