Publicity Seekers was formed in 2006 and has worked with an impressive portfolio of clients including Dawson & Sanderson, Finance Tree, J & B Recycling and the Football Writers’ Association.
The company has clients on a national and regional basis in both the public and private sectors and has acquired a number of new clients this year including Chelsea Summerhouses, and Newcastle-based LED business Low Carbon Lighting.
Jonathan said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Sally on board. She is a highly respected figure in the PR industry and has an incredible amount of drive and determination. She is going to be a massive asset to this agency.”
While at Robson Brown, Sally managed several award-winning clients including Fresh – Smoke Free North East, DFDS Seaways and Deloitte. She has taken on a strategic role at Publicity Seekers to broaden the agency’s services and increase its specialisms.
She added: “It is encouraging to be winning significant new business in the current climate and that reflects our growing reputation of adding value to a client’s bottom line.
