IT'S back to the future for Southampton marketing agency bandv.

MD Ross Breckenridge is bidding to take the family business to new heights whilst returning to half of the company’s original name, Breckenridge.

Ross explains: ‘In the 1980s my father, well known agency founder, Colin Breckenridge, hit the ground running with his partner in crime, Mike Viana, and together they rapidly became known as B&V.

"I’m excited to go back to my family name and begin the next 35 years extending its reputation. I know too well that in business you need to be adaptable, responsive and above all, professional. They are the qualities that have sustained our business.

"Technology changes our methods and aids visible return on investment but the fundamental desire to help businesses grow remains. If you are not prepared to put your name to your business then you have to question your motives!"
