Our Story

CIB was established in October 1984 by former owners Andy Cassie and John Woodberry, both previously working at RIBA, who left to form a business that would fill a clear gap in the market, a marketing communications consultancy with genuine knowledge of and expertise in the construction market.

Our company has grown to become the UK’s leading consultancy of its kind. As a multiple award-winning agency, we continue to flourish and service clients right across the UK and Europe.

Catherine Towns

Managing Director

By working closely and collaboratively with clients we can deliver effective campaigns aligned with core business objectives. We pride ourselves on becoming an integral part of a client’s business by building long term relationships, not only with the marketing team but with the wider business to gain a full understanding of a company’s objectives and issues. Our clients can rely on us to drive activity with a knowledge and enthusiasm that achieves consistent results.

Gavin Tadman, Managing Director

Gavin Tadman

Managing Director

We work hard to understand the shifting dynamics of communications, as we move towards Web 3.0. This is achieved through a mix of networking, participating at industry events, absorbing the influence of B2C marketing and the failsafe of hands-on activity. In this way we offer our clients best advice on the structure of their marketing. I enjoy nothing more than meeting with potential clients to share the insight gained in running countless campaigns for some of the leading brands in the sector.
