BIG Partnership has made further in-roads in the North West with the launch of a new Manchester office and the appointment of a head of operations.
The move follows a string of client wins worth in excess of £250k in the last year, some of which include Transport for London, dairy technology firm, Fabdec and Merseytravel.
Sarah Lawless has been appointed as head of North West operations. Sarah will be based at the agency’s new office and joins from her previous role as head of PR and social media at Manchester-based agency, One.
Joining BIG Partnership at such a crucial point in its expansion is a unique and exciting opportunity. BIG is a well-known agency, with a great reputation in Scotland – one of my main focusses will be to build on this in England.
Sarah added: “I will work with the Board to implement a region-wide strategy and place a strong focus on business development. The company has already made a positive impact in the region, and I am thrilled to continue this success and shape our position in the Manchester market.”
Bryan Garvie, director at BIG Partnership, said: “The recent office opening and the appointment of Sarah highlight an important time for the business. We are realising our vision to expand further into the North West, and with a permanent Manchester headquarters now set in place, we can widen our service offering to one of the UK’s largest economies.
“Manchester is bursting with opportunity and both have a prominent presence in the professional, legal and financial service sectors – all areas in which BIG is particularly strong.
“Sarah will be a key player in our growth in England, and has an excellent track record of implementing and delivering powerful marketing strategies in a range of sectors.”
