Uber, headquartered in the Northern England city of Sheffield, is one of the UK's largest regional agencies, offering a full range of services from traditional creative and digital to shopper marketing and graphic design. It was best known for many years for its work for its largest client, the furniture manufacturer DFS. However the bulk of that account moved away in 2011, causing billings to plunge from over £40m to £24m for 2016, according to Nielsen (in Campaign). It works for a number of local clients as well as several sizeable national advertisers, but in most cases, it shares the latter with other larger agencies. Uber still qualifies for accounting purposes as a small company with declared turnover under £6.5m. In addition to its main Sheffield HQ there is a service office in London. Uber was founded in 2003 by Greg Clark, Richard Benjamin and Pamela-Jayne Broadberry, who still jointly own and run it. They were previously the senior executives at long-established local agency The Source. Subscribers may access account assignments and contact information.
