Comms agency celebrates £1.5m of new business

Creative communications agency RBH has started the year in a strong position having secured more than £1.5m of new business during 2020 despite the challenges of the pandemic.

The Meriden-based agency, which celebrated its 25th birthday last year, has won new business from both existing and new clients with a line-up now including Wacoal, NHS, Peugeot, Cameron Homes, Jaguar Land Rover, Kingfisher Shopping Centre, Marley, certification body, CompEx, and with more wins yet to be announced across its range of services, including creative, design, PR, social and digital.

To support this growth, the agency has promoted from within and also appointed Ash Kinsella as art director, Jack Hughes as video producer, Natasha Whitbourn as social media community manager, Jo James as senior account manager, Joshua Price as digital media manager and Ciara Houlihan and Elle Hackett as account executives. Further appointments are underway to strengthen its expanding team.

Founding partner Debra Hepburn said: “Needless to say, 2020 was an extremely challenging year. Many of our clients, including those in the automotive, retail and fashion sectors were massively impacted, and we needed to bring all of our can-do attitude and creativity to the fore, not only to help clients get through the challenges but to also get through in a way that allowed them to be in the strongest possible position as we emerge from the pandemic.

“We’re delighted to not only welcome new clients to RBH but to retain and in some instances grow accounts, which is down to our committed and hardworking team.”
