Waypoint Partners advises on the sale of Head London to Zone

Waypoint Partners is delighted to announce that they have advised on the sale of the London-based digital agency, Head London, to Zone: a strategy, technology and content specialist with offices in London, Bristol, Cologne and Denver. 

The deal, which will see Head move into Zone’s King’s Cross headquarters, consolidates Zone’s position as the UK’s leading independent digital specialist.

Founded in 2000 by Ramsey Khoury and lead by Rebecca Simmonds, Head London specialises in design, UX, technology and content for blue chip clients including Electrolux, Coca-Cola Enterprises, Tesco and Pearson.  

The team at Head London are delighted to be joining the Zone family along with the opportunities this new global partnership brings.

Waypoint Partners is pleased to have worked with the Head London team on this transaction. Waypoint Partners originally collaborated with Head London in 2014 working closely with the team to grow the business and then to prepare it for sale. 

Head London managing director Rebecca Simmonds, who will join the Zone senior management team, said: ‘Waypoint Partners have worked side by side with us over the 3 years, providing invaluable help, support and guidance where and when we needed it. It was natural that we’d look to them to help us find the right strategic partner and they proved to be excellent throughout the process.’

Miles Welch, owner, Waypoint Partners said: "It has been a pleasure to work with such a talented bunch of people over the last 3 years at Head London. The acquisition by Zone will help take Head to the next level and allow them to achieve their ambitions and continue to innovate."
