PLMR acquires boutique comms agency Mango Marketing
PLMR is strengthening its digital, PR and marketing offering by acquiring boutique PR and marketing agency Mango Marketing.
Mango Marketing and its team have moved to PLMR’s headquarters in Westminster this week.
Sue Murray and Rachel Womack, Mango’s joint managing directors, will join PLMR’s board and continue to run the Mango business day to day.
Mango was founded by Murray, a former head of corporate and public sector marketing at Toshiba, in 2001 and the agency has become highly regarded for its work in technology and education. Longstanding clients include the Bett Show – the world’s biggest education technology event, LEGO Education and the Education World Forum – the largest annual gathering of education and skills ministers.
Education and technology are both key practices areas for PLMR and bringing Mango into the stable not only adds greater sector depth but also introduces more specialist marketing and digital expertise across the whole business.
PLMR Founder and CEO Kevin Craig said: “As PLMR continues to grow, we are really excited about this coming together of two strong teams with a shared culture and ethos. Sue and Rachel have built a fantastic business and talented team at Mango. We see huge potential in this collaboration and we are all looking forward to enhancing what we can offer to our clients.”
Murray added: “PLMR’s ethos, reputation and its wide range of services make this a fantastic move for Mango and our clients. The excellent fit extends across the businesses, clients and staff and enables us to continue to offer the same specialist service to our clients while also offering additional value and exciting new opportunities.”
