Brand transformation consultancy TRIPTK is expanding into the UK. The New York-based advisory firm is launching a new London office within Havas’ King’s Cross Village campus.

TRIPTK is a consulting firm which works as a brand transformation partner for business leaders in search of bold change and meaningful growth. Founded in New York as a joint venture with Havas in 2018, the company has since expanded its international presence through the creation of a data and analytics hub in Amsterdam and a design studio in Mexico City. It has grown by 400% over the past four years and, impressively, boasts a 90% staff retention rate.

The latest chapter in TRIPTK’s international expansion has seen it arrive in the UK, looking to increase its ability to service global brand leaders working to reinvent their brands for relevance. Launching a new office for TRIPTK within Havas’ King’s Cross Village will allow TRIPTK to expand its North America-based relationships into the UK and European market.

Sam Hornsby, Founder and CEO of TRIPTK, remarked, “We already work with a number of clients in London, so now is the perfect time to establish a powerful on-the-ground presence within what is a world-renowned consulting hotbed. Led by the excellent Siobhan within one of Havas’ flagship Villages, this move will offer substantial mutual benefit – for TRIPTK, for our partners at Havas, and for the brands we work with.”

Launching with clients including Diageo, WeTransfer and Rothy’s, TRIPTK London will be led by Siobhan Stoves – who arrives as Managing Partner, following after nearly a decade at WPP’s Design Bridge, most recently as Head of Client Leadership. Stoves will report to Hornsby, and be responsible for growth and team leadership in London.

Stoves added, “The opportunity to help establish such an interesting, innovative brand in the UK was one I’d have been mad to turn down. What makes this role, and its offer to clients, fascinating is the ability to work hand-in-hand with so many talented experts from different, but complementary, specialisms – particularly as the lines between disciplines continues to blur. It’s a genuinely unique proposition, and I cannot wait to help expand TRIPTK’s reach and impact.”

The news follows the successful integration of Gate One into Havas’ UK wing. The purchase of the consulting firm was confirmed in 2019, with Havas hoping it would enable it to tap via a holistic marketing and transformation offering.
