Icon Solutions is a specialist provider of world-class payment solutions and consultancy services, whose clients include leading international financial institutions such as BNP Paribas, HSBC and Lloyds Banking Group.
Following strategic investment from global banking giant J.P. Morgan in 2020, Icon challenged iseepr to leverage the investment announcement to:

  1. Position Icon as an industry leader enabling technology transformation across payments.
  2. Generate global visibility for Icon across international business, national and trade titles.
  3. Drive traffic to Icon owned channels, with a focus on new audiences.


iseepr created a communications programme to support the announcement, with proposed activity including B2B media and analyst engagement, thought-leadership content development and content marketing.

Activity included:
• Working with Icon’s C-Suite team to create tailored messaging for key target audiences, including media, internal stakeholders and customers.

• Coordinating across Icon and J.P. Morgan to agree the scope of the investment announcement and define and successfully execute a media strategy.
