There’s been a flurry of activity in recent months as we hurtle towards our second birthday at Hollicom PR. Firstly, I’m pleased to announce the appointment of two new senior colleagues to the Hollicom team. Susie Fraser has joined us as Development Director. Susie brings with her a wealth of communication sector experience and an enviable track record in public relations and media promotions having run her own marketing agency for 10 years. Also joining Susie is Allan Rennie who joins us as an Associate Director. Allan is a former Editor in Chief of the Daily Record and Sunday Mail, MD Media Scotland and erstwhile Honorary Professor of Media Studies and Journalism at University of Stirling. Allan is also a media consultant and leading commentator on the sector. Both Susie and Allan will be helping us get to our third birthday!
I’m also delighted to welcome a number of new clients to our portfolio of brands and businesses. Welcome on board to the team at The Health Lottery who recently announced that they had raised over £100m for good causes. It is our aim to work with the Health Lottery to raise the next £100m. Hello to the brands of Eden Mill. Eden Mill produces the award-winning Eden Mill Gin and a series of innovative whisky and beer brands. Cheers! We look forward to working with Paul, Tony, Conor and the team to grow their business. The Scottish Building Society might be the world’s oldest society but they are one of our newest clients. They are involved in a groundbreaking sponsorship of Scottish Women’s football which is a partnership we will help them grow in 2019. After their recent acquisition by IHG we are honoured to be working with both The Blythswood Square Hotel and The Grand Central Hotel. They are two of Scotland’s most famous and successful hotels and this year embark on a programme of re-branding, a programme which Hollicom will be making sure the world knows about. Cheeky Panda is one of the UK’s fastest growing FMCG brands operating in the tissue and wipe sector. It’s a unique product operating in an eco-friendly sector which everyone at Hollicom is passionate about. They are going global and so are we! Another new client is Clinetix, the UK’s biggest and most successful Facial Aesthetics practitioner. Dr Simon Ravichandran and his wife Dr Emma Ravichandran are the “Doctors who train the Doctors”. Watch this space!
Finally, I would like to thank all the clients and of course the Hollicom team who have helped us get to where we are now. It’s hard work, tough at times but great fun too. We’ve built our business on good strategic insight and super creative thinking (In my humble opinion).
