Our History

Deyton Bell was founded in Cambridge in 2005. Our work began with a focus supporting agencies with specific strategic economic issues to tackle. Over subsequent years, the company developed its national and international reputation, including in the USA, Europe and the Asia Pacific Region.

Over the past 18 years, Deyton Bell has seen its specialist expertise broaden. We now operate across a range of disciplines: local economic development; inward investment, innovation and business support. In each are we provide expertise in research and analysis, strategy development, business case development and appraisal, and evaluation, and we work closely with clients across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.

To reflecting a growing client base and increased staff numbers, additional offices were established early in 2022 in Leeds and London.
