Bedford – After 16 years working up through the agency, Mike Bardsley has become a partner and named Vice President at Revolve.
“Mike has been part of the very fabric of Revolve for many years,” says Phil Otto, founder and CEO. “I am proud to call him a close friend, a colleague, and now a business partner. He is creative, perpetually curious, and always looking for better ways to build our clients’ brands.”
“I love our team, many of my clients have become close friends, and our work fills me with pride,” says Bardsley. “I’ve enjoyed incredible experiences, personal and professional growth, and am raising a family in a wonderful part of the world. What more could you ask for from a career? I’m fortunate. And I’m excited for the future at Revolve.”
Bardsley’s experience includes two national brands who’ve been staple clients of Revolve since well before he started with the company – Kohltech Windows and TIMBER MART. He also counts Supplement King, Polaris, Halifax Regional Municipality, NSLC, Murphy Hospitality Group, Truro Cannabis and Communications Nova Scotia as key accounts. “It’s our ability to provide value to any size business that keeps me fired up. Our region relies on the success of entrepreneurial businesses. Those businesses need professional marketing and relationships they can trust.”
Revolve attracted a wide range of international and local clients in 2019, including developing and launching the Deloitte Private across Canada and Chile, becoming Cavendish Farms day to day agency, being named Red Wing Shoes’ Canadian agency, and CUA, Armour Group, Orange Theory Fitness, IWK Foundation, CBCL, Jagger’s Café, Kangaroo and Dogtopia.
To support its growth in social media and content development, Revolve has recently added to the team including welcoming ACD Liz Colville from New York, as well as Marla Chisholm, Patrick Flood, Noah Connolly and Devan Dube.
