‘Super Google’ firm lands in Cornwall


Marwick Marketing, a ‘super Google’ firm and one of the fastest growing companies in western Canada, has expanded its operations to the UK, opening a new office in Newquay.

A Premier Google Partner Agency, one of only 3% of agencies in Europe and North America awarded this optimum status, Marwick is now one of only two companies across the south west with this qualification and experience.

It marks a welcome return to Cornwall for founder and CEO Christian Thomson, who previously lived in Newquay for 13 years, setting up a number of successful businesses and meeting his Canadian wife, Theresa, in the town. In 2009, he was named Young Business Person of the Year at the Cornwall Business Awards.

Along with his family, he later moved to Canada where he founded Marwick Marketing in 2012, providing digital business and profit building strategies for a wide range of companies across various sectors in and around British Columbia.

The company was listed 11th in the Fastest Growing Companies in British Columbia list. Now in its ninth year of business, Marwick’s move into the UK market is part of an ongoing investment and expansion strategy which also sees the company adding to the team in its Canadian office in Squamish, between Vancouver and Whistler.

Thomson said: “We have a team of 21 in our office in Canada and for myself and my family, moving back to Cornwall was a very natural opportunity for us – and for the business.”
