Award-winning strategic communications consultancy Admiral PR has added four new recruits to its Newcastle head office, after winning new contracts totalling more than £250,000.
Steve Maybury joins the agency as account director. He specialises in B2B campaigns and brings with him a wealth of experience in sectors such as professional and financial services, education, logistics and safety.
Heidi Boden has made the move from Manchester to join the Newcastle team as account manager. She has five years’ PR experience working across both B2B and consumer accounts, including legal, finance, retail and construction.
Commenting on the new additions to the team, company director and head of Admiral’s Newcastle office, Peter Bould, said: “Admiral has had a remarkable few months which have seen us win new clients in professional and financial services, oil and gas, energy, architecture and FMCG. That has meant we have been able to make additions to our team and recruit people who are skilled in those sectors.”
Having completed a Master of Arts degree in Public Relations, Anne-Marie Bailey has also made the move from Manchester back to her native North East, and joins the team as senior account executive.
Ann Marie Slattery completes the line-up of new faces at Admiral and joins the team as account executive, having completed a six-month internship at Northumberland County Council.
Mr Bould continued: “To have won new contracts and brought in four additions is particularly pleasing since we are still operating in tough market conditions. But it is clear that businesses are willing to invest in PR and communications where it adds value. We’re delighted to welcome Steve, Heidi, Anne-Marie and Ann Marie into the team and we look forward to further success with them on board.”
