Beattie, the integrated communications agency, has won a competitive pitch to handle the consumer and corporate PR for a luxury food and beverage brand.
Cartwright & Butler, which is stocked in department stores like Harrods and Selfridges, joins the agency’s growing client roster on a retained basis. Beattie will manage media relations, social media and content development in partnership with its in-house marketing team.
Rachel Gladwin, managing director for Beattie’s North & Midlands division, said: “2019 has been a year of outstanding growth for Beattie, with a number of exciting client wins, and this latest signing gives our booming food & beverage portfolio an additional boost.
“We are delighted to be working with Cartwright & Butler as they enter a crucial new phase of their business development journey.”
Nigel Arnett, director at Cartwright & Butler, said: “It’s an exciting time for Cartwright & Butler as we launch new products, including deluxe flavoured gin and shortbread as well as new hampers, to the market ahead of the festive season. Our corporate gifting service is also performing very well thanks to the exceptional quality of our products.
“We wanted to appoint an agency that was a true extension of our marketing team, and having already worked with Beattie on our 2019 corporate gifting project, we were seriously impressed by their innovative, results-driven approach. We are delighted to have Beattie on board!”
