Our story

From Birmingham to the global stage since 2012.

Our story

It started with content and we focused on mobile. Placing content in the palm of customers’ hands.

Our business model was designed around unlocking the mobile opportunity. From there came the mantra ‘content is king’.

From CEO James Macfarlane starting PM Connect straight out of university, our Birmingham HQ now houses more than 50 staff – and we’re still expanding.

Developers, marketeers, brand experts. We are all driven to connect. 

Award-winning and fast-growing. We’re only just getting going.
