Edit & Join the Dots Earn B Corp Certification

The Salocin Group are pleased to announce that Edit & Join the Dots have achieved B Corp certification, joining the ranks of a select few businesses to achieve the certification in the UK. Certified B Corporations are business that have completed a rigorous screening process to ensure that businesses meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

Well-known B Corporations include Patagonia, Seventh Generation, Eileen Fisher, Allbirds, Ben & Jerry’s, Danone, and Burt’s Bees, with only a select few marketing agencies and consultancies achieving the certification. Across the UK, only just over 600 businesses, have achieved the certification to date.

Stacey Day, People Director is thrilled with the news, “We’re pausing to celebrate, but the process has taught us so much, we’re going to keep learning and discovering new ways we can make changes for good and fulfil our commitment to a triple bottom line approach, which focuses on 3 P’s: people, profit, and planet.”

Nick Dixon, Executive Chairman of The Salocin Group, congratulates the team on their accomplishment, “This was a vast undertaking, and the team should really be proud that their work and dedication have resulted in such a coveted certification. That the company culture and ethical stance aligns so well with B Corp ideals is truly a testament to years of purposeful effort to make a difference for people and planet.”

The Salocin Group and Edit are pleased to announce J Cromack’s appointment to his new role as Executive Director, Innovation, Partnerships and Privacy, at Edit. J will also take up a board position at parent company, The Salocin Group.

J has accumulated over 30-years’ experience in the Marketing sector. This includes over five years as CEO and Executive Director at Wood for Trees, and five years as CEO of the GIG at DST (formerly the Lateral Group), where he reported to The Salocin Group’s founder and Executive Chairman, Nick Dixon.

More recently in 2014, J co-founded MyLife Digital, a data-privacy business built on the principle that individuals should be able to control the use of their personal data, a ground-breaking concept given this was several years prior to the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In recognition of his work in this area, in 2020 J was awarded Privacy and Trust Champion, by the leading industry association, Data IQ. In April 2021 MyLife Digital was acquired by Data Privacy & Information Security specialists, DataGuard.

J’s role at The Salocin Group and Edit will principally be expanding the partner ecosystem, driving innovation through new service lines, and using his experience in privacy first technologies to help Edit’s clients navigate a world without cookies and a greater reliance on 1st-party data.

On his appointment Nick Dixon comments,

“J is a visionary when it comes to customer data. He was way ahead of the tech and data sector, recognising the need to adopt a privacy first approach and empowering consumers to have meaningful control of their data. His experience in the data and marketing services sector, together with his knowledge of partner ecosystems and privacy enabling technologies will accelerate The Salocin Group’s strategy to create a unified, data-powered marketing group.”

“I’m looking forward to joining a really experienced, dynamic team,” J adds, “I’ve been aware of Edit for a number of years. They’ve really grown their reputation as 1st-party data specialists, being the first business to complete a Microsoft Customer Insights implementation in the UK and cleaning up at this year’s DMA Awards. My aim is to enhance the existing service lines with new partnership opportunities which complement the existing MarTech, Data Marketing and Strategic expertise across The Salocin Group.”
