Krow is an independent creative agency based in London. It was founded in 2005 by Nick Hastings, Barry Cook, Malcolm White and John Quarrey, old friends and former colleagues for several years at Yellowhammer, D'Arcy and Leo Burnett. They continue to jointly own and run the business. (Anyone puzzled by the agency's name should try spelling it backwards). The business made its first appearance in Nielsen/Campaign's Top 30 ranking in 2010, and has slowly crept up the ranking since then. At the end of 2011, it won its biggest ever client, furniture retailer DFS, which caused billings to soar. Statutory turnover doubled in 2014 to almost £24m. The agency also strengthened its services with the acquisition of digital agency Clusta. In 2018, Krow was acquired by mid-sized UK marketing roll-up The Mission.
