Beattie Names New Head of Manchester Office

Monday, 03 February 2014

Siobhan McGrogan is the new head of the Beattie Communications PR team in Manchester.

The independently-owned, integrated public relations, social media and digital marketing agency, has a network of eight offices across the UK and employs around 100 people.

Established ten years ago, the Manchester office is growing fast and supports clients such as Specsavers, easyJet and the Federation of Small Businesses.

In her new role, Siobhan will head teams across Beattie’s B2B and B2C divisions, provide senior client consultancy and expand the existing client portfolio. She will also be leading a recruitment drive to support recent new business wins.

Siobhan first joined Beattie in 2005, and has worked across retail, property, food, construction, education and corporate communications. Having quickly climbed the ranks, she took two years out of agency life to oversee communications at Venture Photography before returning to Beattie in early 2012.

Siobhan said: “I’m looking forward to what is set to be an exciting year for Beattie in Manchester. We are looking to grow the team and its revenues, as well as building our reputation as a creative and innovative agency.”

Laurna Woods, Group Managing Director, said: “We are delighted that Siobhan will be leading our team in Manchester. 

“She has some superb credentials in brand communications across a diverse mix of sectors, and her talent, passion and enthusiasm makes her the perfect choice to support our ambitions for growth in the North West.”

Beattie Communications has eight offices in the UK including London, Manchester and Glasgow, and has been established for more than 25 years. The agency also has an international network spanning 40 countries. Its specialist teams cover 14 industry sectors including retail, property and health.
