About Engine

Engine are a global marketing services network comprised of best-in-class communications specialists. They aim to transform clients’ businesses through natural and seamless collaboration, delivered without competition and without compromise.

With four offices across the UK, they describe themselves as a new breed of marketing services network, and more than just a holding company - instead they think of themselves as a culture and an approach.

At the heart of the company’s work are a set of core principles: collaborate; respect; innovate; pay it forward; and give feedback.

Engine’s UK operations are led by UK Group Managing Director Simon Peck, with a significant role also being played by Debbie Klein, Chief Executive of Engine Europe and Asia. Both meet with every new starter in a small group and share Engine’s history, values and vision. They also send out regular newsletters to keep the company updated on the latest developments in the business.
