Six New Additions as Birmingham PR Agency Expands

Edgbaston PR and social media firm, WPR, has continued its recent growth with the arrival of six new team members.

Joining the team with experience from past roles are: Tom Went as content manager, Amy Nichol as social media manager and Georgie Butler as account executive.

Further demonstrating its commitment to finding and developing new talent, WPR has also welcomed three new graduate account executives: Gideon Casey, Carla Plowden-Roberts and Emma Horner.

The new team members are welcome additions to both the B2B and the B2C team within the organisation, each bringing with them a combination of desirable skills. This expansion of the team comes as a result of continued growth of the business and an increasing client portfolio, which includes recent new business successes Lloyd’s Register, National Trust and Aggreko.

Tom joins WPR as content manager, a brand-new role for the agency, following a rise in demand for the production of campaign material alongside monthly activity. With previous experience as a content writer at Magenta Associates, he will provide support across all accounts requiring content strategy and content creation.

Speaking about his new position at WPR, Tom Went said: “It was clear to me right from the start that WPR had a strong working culture and everyone had a passion for delivering impactful campaigns within the agency. As one of Birmingham’s leading PR, social and search agencies, I was delighted to be offered the position. I am especially looking forward to working on a variety of accounts to put my expertise into practice for a range of clients.”

Commenting on the recent appointments, Jane Ainsworth, managing director of WPR, said: “With the rising demand for our services, it is with great pleasure that we introduce our newest team members. Each individual joining us has a real drive to produce hard-hitting content for client projects that will gain recognition within the industry.”
