KUB was founded by Peter Dickinson in 2001 as a business coaching consultancy. The company has the very same mission today as it did back then: to help SME businesses grow and thrive through knowledge combined with a proven process.
Peter Dickinson started out his early career as a civil engineer before making the leap into computer programming. This was in the ’80s, a time when graphs were still created using punch cards. Over the years, Peter has gone on to successfully run a multi-million-pound waste management business, along with a variety of other projects, leading him to complete his MBA in the early 00s. During this time, Peter discovered his passion lay in helping businesses to grow as a business coach and marketing specialist. Strong in his belief that growing a business isn’t based solely on hard work and the right luck, anyone can grow a business as long as they are passionate and follow a proven structured approach; Peter launched KUB.
Over the past 19 years of running KUB, Peter has helped close to 500 businesses to overcome their challenges and grow, but he hasn’t done it alone. Peter’s daughter, Charleh has always worked closely alongside him, as well as pursuing her own ventures at a young age. She began a food blog at 17 and, recognised there was a gap in the market for healthy on-the-go snacks appropriate for food allergy sufferers so she turned her blog into an ecommerce business at the age of 19. During this time, Charleh also gained a breadth of experience working for a number of marketing agencies.
The complementary combination of their skills and experience meant both Peter and Charleh worked in perfect harmony as a team. By joining together, they realised they could make a real difference for people who wanted to grow their business.
In 2016, KUB became the hybrid digital marketing agency that it is today. Since then, KUB has welcomed new members with their own passions and specialisms to the family. It is this team who delivers your digital marketing services today. Based in Manchester, UK, KUB works with an array of clients across various industries both nationally and internationally.
