About us

PHD Marketing and Strategy is a UK-based marketing and communications agency that works with clients around the globe to deliver targeted B2B strategies and campaigns that raise brand profiles and deliver ROI. We are results-focused but that doesn’t mean we don’t have fun achieving those results. Many of our clients have been on our books for 5+ years because we add a personal touch to everything we do.

Our content marketing specialists work seamlessly with your business, offering full remote support with a human touch.

PHD was founded by Joanna Stephenson

…former LINPAC VP of Marketing with past directorships at Sun Chemical and Dow Chemical. In 2014, after she successfully pitched to outsource the LINPAC marketing department, PHD was born. Today we employ 13+ specialist in-house employees and work with trusted third-party providers, including Design by PHD, to provide a wide range of current B2B communications tools to clients.

As a team, we believe that digital marketing tools and practices are not just the domain of B2C business. We understand that digital transformation can be a headache for our B2B partners. PHD has strong core strengths in earned and owned media such as PR and SEO but we are equally happy to promote our partners through shared and paid media too. Whatever your specific marketing project needs… we’ll run with it.
