...our year-on-year growth, from just two to thirty people, demonstrates the success of our unique approach.
London, UK (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
Integrated PR, social media and SEO agency Punch Communications takes its head count to 30 with five recent new hires. Following a recent office move to accommodate the company’s growth, Punch’s expansion includes an account manager, three account executives and a copywriter.
Bryn Foweather has been appointed as an account manager to work across Punch’s three disciplines, with an emphasis on social media services. Bryn’s previous social media clients have been in the retail and leisure sphere, including musicians and music venues. Additionally, he has used a number of channels to promote his own music management agency and venues. Bryn commented: “I have been immersed in social media every day for around seven years and I particularly love the challenge of getting as much out of platforms as possible when marketing budgets are tight.”
Mel Fenson joins Punch as a copywriter with over five years of freelance experience writing primarily for homeware and wedding clients. Supporting PR, SEO and social media activity, Mel will be responsible for creating text, proofreading and quality assurance as well as helping to translate brands’ language style, personality and tone of voice into content.
Emilie Legrand re-joins the team as an account executive, having spent the last eight months developing her traditional PR skills in the mother and baby sector. Emilie first joined Punch over three years ago and worked on a wide variety of accounts. She said: “Whilst I have recently sharpened my media relations skills, I missed working on integrated accounts that deliver so much more to the client.”
Maya Mistry arrives at Punch as an account executive with a BA in journalism from The University of Sheffield, a master's degree in PR from De Montfort University and two and half years’ experience working in PR and search engine optimisation. Not only does Maya have traditional PR skills, which can be applied to SEO, but she also has a high level of on-site technical knowledge. Maya also blogs about food, her boxing career and other personal interests in her spare time.
Punch has also appointed a junior account executive, Alexander Nicholls, bringing with him lots of passion for learning and a desire to succeed. He said: “It’s fantastic I have been given the chance to learn three exciting disciplines and grow my career with such a forward-thinking agency. In a matter of days I’ve already started to learn about integrated tactics that most standalone PR, search or social media agencies don’t deliver.”
Pete Goold, owner and managing director of Punch Communications, added: “This year is Punch’s tenth anniversary and our year-on-year growth, from just two to thirty people, demonstrates the success of our unique approach. That we still need further additions to the Punch family is testament to the integrated methodology as well as the hard work the whole team puts in – client wins and team expansion looks set to continue.”
