LMH changes name to Memnon, aligning with global brand
LMH, the UK arm of Memnon’s library migration and content services, has formally changed its name to Memnon. The move unites the company’s global operations under a single brand.
LMH and Memnon have operated as the same business since 2021, since Memnon joined the ES Media Group. Now, with LMH’s name change, the Memnon brand is represented in Europe (Brussels, Belgium), North America (Bloomington, USA), APAC (Wellington, New Zealand) and the UK.
The coming together of the two entities over the past two years has been viewed as a natural progression, with the transition facilitated by the appointment of LMH founder and former managing director Gary Edwards as Chief Operating Officer for Memnon last year. In this role Edwards has been responsible for aligning working practices not only in the UK but across all of Memnon’s global facilities.
Continuity in day-to-day operations has been overseen by UK director of production and operations Clive Kingston, who is responsible for the running of the Leighton Buzzard media processing facility.
Edwards said of the name change: “This is the beginning of the next stage for LMH. When the company was founded in 2016, our goal was to grow to be trusted by some of the world’s largest names not only in media and entertainment, but also in the cultural and archival world. Uniting under the Memnon brand brings with it the status of a global brand operating on three continents and able to service clients anywhere in the world.”
Memnon CEO Heidi Shakespeare added: “Gary has been instrumental in integrating Memnon and LMH, nurturing a close working relationship from day one and driving project collaboration, knowledge-sharing and best practice across all our global locations. With LMH’s name change, I’m delighted to formalise the cooperation between the UK and all our facilities that has been characteristic of the last two years.”
Coinciding with the change, Memnon has revealed a refresh of its branding, cementing a sense of unity, identity and ownership across its entire team. The new logo nods to Memnon’s traditional rounded font while incorporating a modern graphic element to increase brand recognition especially on digital platforms.
