BEATTIE BRINGS IN FOUR HIGH PROFILE WINS IN FIRST QUARTER
Wednesday, 15 March 2017
Beattie, the creative communications group, has had one of its most successful first quarters to date in Scotland after signing up four big name clients.
The Scottish operation – which has offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Falkirk - is now working with award-winning travel giant, Barrhead Travel, Scotland’s premier shopping centre, Buchanan Galleries, Ayrshire-based hospitality group Buzzworks Holdings, and leading intellectual property specialist, Marks & Clerk.
Beattie’s Director for Scotland, Joanne Spence, said: “It’s been a fantastic start to the year for our team as we continue to build on our already impressive portfolio. We have big ambitions for the business in Scotland and adding such an impressive list of new clients to our books allows us to keep up the momentum.
“Our sector experience combined with our creative capabilities has proved a winning combination and we can’t wait to get to work. This is where it all began for Beattie and we have such a strong team on the ground that is complemented by our UK network - we feel there is so much more to come.”
The new client wins follow the appointment of advertising supremo Kevin Roberts as company Chairman and marketing guru Alison Clarke as Chair of Only Marketing.
Since its inception as a Scottish news agency in 1986, Beattie has developed into one of the UK’s leading integrated PR, marketing and communications consultancies. Its client roster includes Specsavers, Vue, La Redoute and Tesco.
In the UK, Beattie has a 130-strong team operating from eight offices including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, Falkirk and Edinburgh, and is currently developing its reach globally with a presence in America and Canada.
