Media & Digital Technology
Media is changing at an extraordinary pace – perhaps faster than any other market sector. Change brings opportunity.
With the explosion in digital content consumption and non-stop M&A activity, the media landscape is barely recognisable from that of the pre-internet age.
The UK’s creative industries and digital technology skills are recognised worldwide and these businesses continue to attract international buyers.
Central to Cavendish’s media expertise is our understanding of a broad range of media sectors. Advertising and marketing, data management, digital technology, publishing, television production, PR, events and conferences, recruitment and sports marketing.
At Cavendish we understand the media and digital space and the convergence with other sectors such as healthcare and technology. This has enabled us to achieve excellent prices for our clients across a broad range of media and digital businesses.

Meet our experts
Cavendish’s success is based on the wealth of experience of our people. We have a team of professionals with expertise across a wide variety of sectors, deal sizes, and transaction types.
“When selling The Farm, the best decision we took was to choose to work with Linda and her team at Cavendish. They delivered an excellent deal, were a delight to work with, are thoroughly professional, excellent value for money and will remain firm friends. No one could have got us a better outcome.”
Cavendish ran a very tight process and generated real bidding excitement. Opta is seen by Perform as a the missing piece in their content jigsaw.
Linda Sullivan, James Ellis and the Cavendish team were excellent throughout the process and achieved a very positive result for the management and shareholders. I highly recommend them. Rex has an exciting future as part of Shutterstock, the NYSE quoted international company.
“The Cavendish team of Jon, Chris, Chirag and Soben steered the process from start to finish and were instrumental in bringing this transaction to a successful conclusion with the right partner in the form of Naviga. The sale of Miles 33 to Naviga marked a successful exit for the financial investors and provides management with a larger platform to grow the business.”
“It was a pleasure to work with the Cavendish team, led by Linda Sullivan. As well as displaying a deep understanding of our sector, they also made every effort to get under the skin of our business, which ensured that we were fully aligned from start to finish. In particular, I was hugely impressed by the way in which Linda conducted the process with a calm authority and professionalism throughout. She is a class act.
We are delighted with the outcome and feel that we have found the perfect partner for Dare in the Oliver Group. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cavendish to my peers in the industry.”
…Cavendish showed an intimate knowledge of the sale process from start to finish. They demonstrated technical excellence in a complex transaction and I had full confidence in their abilities at all times. I am delighted that the management team have found a partner that will assist with the continued development of WTG.
