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 halve from over £40m. Nielsen (in Campaign) estimated £23m for 2018. Towards the end of that year, Uber acquired regional rival Public Image. Uber 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, previously the senior executives at long-established local agency The Source. Clark and Broadberry still jointly own and run Uber. Clark is managing director.
