Dock9 are thrilled to announce that we have partnered with Free Partners, a London based brand and communications agency who specialise in the insurance market… just like us! Together, we can provide an unrivalled brand-led digital proposition to the insurance sector.

This partnership is announced at a time when insurers feel that investment in digital infrastructure such as websites, intranets and back end systems would have made things easier in the current environment (according to a recent Free Partners market poll). Bringing together Free Partners’ market leading brand and communications expertise, and Dock9’s award-winning tech expertise, will help insurance companies stay ahead of the development curve, by delivering agile, progressive, effective digital communications solutions to enhance and amplify their existing strategies.

The team at Free has worked with business owners and marketing professionals within the insurance sector for over 20 years helping them make their businesses matter to the market. Their robust approach ensures they are able to help their clients articulate what’s different and distinctive about their brand and develop this into targeted, integrated creative campaigns that stand out to win hearts and minds. Through a combination of brand development, outstanding design, PR and digital marketing, Free’s award-winning approach helps their clients look better, sound better and win better business to achieve the growth they are looking for.

Mark Lusted, Founder and CEO of Dock9 – 

“We had admired Free Partners work in the insurance sector for a number of years and given that we both specialise in this industry, the partnership was a natural one. 

Over the past 12 years, we have worked with a number of high street insurers to deliver innovative digital transformation projects and we’re excited to be able to partner with Free Partners to support our clients with their proficiency in brand development, PR and digital marketing.”

 Lorraine Jeckells, Managing Partners of Free Partners – 

“The team at Dock9 have impressed us with their second-to-none tech solutions and good old fashioned tenacious work ethic. Partnerships work best where each partner has a specific role to play, and where they work together to ensure the whole is greater than the sum or its parts. We are excited to introduce Dock9 to our clients and friends in the market as our go-to enterprise digital business solutions agency.  

At Free, service and quality are paramount to our offer. We’ve worked hard to distinguish ourselves in this market and build our reputation for excellence. We exclusively work with like-minded agencies who are at the top of their field and who constantly seeking to do better for their clients and their staff. I am very excited to see what we can do to help our clients stand out and grow strong.”
