A capital idea – Nottingham PR agency expands into London

Hannah Bullock, account manager, and Helen Ansell, marketing director

PR agency Cartwright Communications has expanded into London with the opening of its Farringdon office, following the launch of its Birmingham office in Spring.

Cartwright’s London base will be headed up by Helen Ansell, marketing director, alongside Hannah Bullock, PR account manager.

Ansell said: “Launching Cartwright in London is a momentous milestone for the agency and strategically positions us to better acquire and support leading clients across property and construction, building products, food and beverage, and healthcare sectors. We’re excited by the capability of a London presence to attract more PR, digital and marketing talent to our expanding team.”

Cartwright says it has already secured three clients with a “significant” presence in London; construction project management consultancy EDGE; construction social value provider Fortem; and international luxury desserts restaurant franchise Heavenly Desserts, which is targeting growth in the capital.

Ansell will be joined by Hannah Bullock, account manager, who recently returned to Cartwright following two years at a London communications agency.

Bullock said: “I was thrilled to hear that Cartwright was opening a London office and jumped at the chance to return to the brilliant team that provided me with my first career experience in PR out of university. Liz and the team have worked hard to develop a truly unique close-knit culture of care and support and I couldn’t be more excited to help establish the company’s presence in London alongside Helen.”

Ansell added: “As a thriving hub for the capital’s growing businesses, Farringdon is the ideal location from which Helen and I can develop both our client base and team.”

Liz Cartwright, ex-journalist and managing director who founded Cartwright Communications in 2006, said: “We have a fantastic ambitious and dynamic agency where strong relationships between the teams and offices are integral to our success, enabling us to consistently punch above our weight and work with internationally-renowned clients across the firm’s specialist sectors.”
