Beattie has appointed its veteran London bureau chief Jacquie Boyd-Coleman as managing director of its offices in London, Essex and Cornwall.
Headquartered in London, Beattie has nine offices in the UK including Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds and Glasgow.
Boyd-Coleman, who joined Beattie’s Glasgow office 15 years ago, has a team of 40 PR, digital and creative specialists in London and the south.
Laurna Woods, Beattie CEO – who has been with the business for 22 years – said: “Jacquie Boyd-Coleman has built one of London’s most dynamic PR, social, digital and creative teams with a strong retail, technology and healthcare focus.
“Going forward, her remit is to develop our operations in the south east and south west so that we become the best-regarded agency in London and the south.”
Boyd-Coleman said: “I’m delighted to become MD of our three business hubs and my focus is to become the creative agency that clients love and rivals respect.
“The London hub is booming, with us adding £1m in new fees over the last eight months. The objective will be to replicate that financial performance across the south east and south west.”
