Comms agency Beattie Group kickstarts 2019 with new business worth £1m
Integrated communications agency Beattie Group is creating jobs on the back of its best month for new business in over a year.
In January, the company added contracts worth almost £1m across its Only Marketing, 11ten, Beattie Communications and Beattie Tartan brands.
Having welcomed five new staff, the company plans to expand its team further with another seven jobs.
Beattie Group is headquartered in London and has 16 offices worldwide, including UK teams in Leeds and Manchester.
Its new clients include an international consumer brand, online retailer, animal health brand, European university and North American data business.
Laurna Woods, CEO at Beattie, said: “Despite talk of a global recession and the uncertainty of Brexit in the UK, January was our best new business month in more than a year.
“We have been spending big on our marketing and it is paying dividends in terms of new business with seven new clients coming on board in January.”
She continued: “We’ve also had a boost from existing clients who are investing more in their marketing thanks to the results we’re producing across PR, social, digital and content.
“While no one can predict the future, 2019 is looking bright for all of the Beattie brands.”
