About Us

Who We Are

Echo-U was set up in 2001 by Diana Bourke and David Blakey in the heart of Newcastle’s Quayside; where our head office still is today.

Back then, recognising that clients needed intelligent customer contact to build customer relationships their ambition for the business was simple – combine cutting-edge technology and great communicators to deliver the best customer experience through the art of conversation.

Echo-U’s philosophy is still the same today.  We just apply all the expertise we’ve built up over the years dealing with successful organisations to deliver great conversations with today’s customers.
