About Barcadia

Barcadia Media is a modern media and publishing company based in the sunny seaside town of Blackpool, Lancashire. We provide marketing and email broadcast solutions for finance and property professionals, as well as three popular online trade publications; Financial Reporter, Property Reporter and the newly-introduced Commercial Reporter.

Founded in 2009 by owners Andy Shields and James Lucas, Barcadia aims to offer intelligent, effective marketing solutions and we do all this by working together, sharing responsibilities, hearing each other out, working to each of our strengths, having a beer or two at the end of the day... anything that will keep the wheel turning.

We love a challenge and we love the chance to meet new people and show what we can do.

We're Barcadia Media and we'd love to hear from you.

Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious... and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
