A local PR agency is celebrating its own success story with a run of prestigious contract wins, an expansion of its team, and the marking of a major milestone.
Shrewsbury-based Zen Communications has seen its retained client portfolio grow by 30% in the last quarter alone, has appointed a new PR Administrator and a new PR Executive, and is celebrating five years in business.
“Celebrating our fifth birthday is in itself a major milestone” explained Zen’s Founder and Director Felicity Wingrove. “Most of our agency’s life has been spent in the midst of the recession and yet we’ve grown the agency from an owner-operator business with just me, to a fantastic team of six highly-trained PR people and ex-journalists, operating from dedicated premises on Battlefield Enterprise Park.”
“The economic conditions have absolutely meant that we’ve been more conservative and cautious in our growth and expansion than we may otherwise have been, but I’m hugely proud of what we’ve achieved in the last few years. We work with some of the best, most interesting, and dynamic businesses in the UK– in fact for some clients we operate globally so jokes about plans for world-domination are closer to the truth than you might think!”
The agency has developed an enviable client base which covers Shropshire-based owner-operator start-ups right through to national and multi-national FTSE100 companies. “We’ve attracted some amazing clients who have already made it and want to shout louder – and more strategically – about what they’re doing” explained Felicity. “And we’ve also taken on some really exciting businesses who either didn’t realise just how newsworthy they were, or who hadn’t utilised PR to best effect before.”
Expansion of the team has come about as a result of organic business growth, and the agency is now one of the largest dedicated PR firms in the region. “Of course we understand that size isn’t everything, but we have real expertise and skill within our team, as well as a passion for PR and genuine enthusiasm for our clients and their businesses and this has been rewarded. Our growth and success so far is evidence that we’re doing something right, and we’re confident that with the appointment of our two new recruits, Jennie Windle and Hannah Noakes, we’re in a great place to continue to thrive and prosper” Felicity concluded.
