Mike Robb

Exizent, a new technology business that recently raised £3.6 million in funding, has appointed Boldspace as its retained PR agency following a four-way competitive pitch process.

The Glasgow-based firm is on a mission to transform the way the legal and financial services industry deals with bereavement and make the process far less stressful for family members experiencing loss. It is the first-ever platform that connects data, services and the network of people involved when someone dies.

Boldspace will work with the team to drive awareness amongst its core target audience in the legal services sector and beyond. Exizent will be onboarded to the agency’s proprietary technology platform, BoldLens, which allows a business to monitor, track, predict, and react to developing trends around their business, across all communications channels, in real-time.

The account will be led by Boldspace Co-founder and Managing Director, Mike Robb, reporting to Exizent CEO Nick Cousins and PR & Communications Consultant, Holly Marshall, who was previously corporate affairs chief at challenger bank Aldermore.

Holly Marshall, PR & Communications Consultant at Exizent, said: “Exizent is one of those rare businesses whose vision and purpose really resonates with everyone you speak to. Leveraging technology to be a force for good in the world and improve the bereavement experience for everyone involved. The potential to make one of the hardest times in someone’s life easier is a compelling narrative and we look forward to working with Boldspace to tell our story in the years ahead as we scale.”

Mike Robb, Co-founder and Managing Director of Boldspace, said: “Exizent has the potential to be one of Scotland’s biggest tech success stories. It is a first of its kind, is driven by a clear mission and has significant ambitions to revolutionise its market. We are delighted to be working to support the team in telling this great story.”

This latest win for Boldspace follows a successful first half year for the agency, which now has 17 clients across sectors including technology, healthcare, financial services, ecommerce, and energy.
