Rob Illidge

CEO, Social Republic

CEO of global social media agency, Social Republic, with offices in Manchester and New York.
Former marketing director, Rob, started his social media journey studying in the United States, before working on campaigns in the technology, professional services and fintech industries.
Social Republic was founded in 2015 as a “new way”, an alternative to traditional agencies and is trusted by brands such as eBay, Red Bull, Pioneer and The Red Cross.
