Marquis, a supplier of consultancy services and broadcast software, has altered its business structure by establishing three separate companies - Marquis Consulting LLP, Marquis Broadcast Ltd and Marquis Holdings Ltd.
Marquis' consultancy division was set up in 2006 to advise broadcasters looking to make the change to file-based workflows. Since then it has grown significantly to represent 35% of company revenues. With the restructure, this division becomes Marquis Consulting, a separate Limited Liability Partnership (LLP), operating autonomously from Marquis' software development business and headed by Bob Gentry, with support from partners Peter Davies, Rod Bird and Andy Palmer. All partners will share ownership of the new LLP with Marquis Holdings the majority shareholder.
"This is a very exciting move and we look forward to offering broadcasters and media professionals a truly independent service," said Gentry (pictured).
Marquis Holdings has been established to provide marketing and financial services to Marquis Consulting and Marquis Broadcast, providing both companies with valuable shared resources.
