EDINBURGH-based Stripe Communications, CIPR PRide Scotland 2012 Outstanding Consultancy of the Year, has announced its expansion into Glasgow, with the opening of a new office based in West Regent Street.
The office will support Stripe’s continued growth, providing a hub for new clients based in the West, or those looking for a Scottish regional PR network.
Juliet Simpson, Stripe managing director will take noard responsibility for the office, which will be headed up by new recruit, Alison Downs, who has joined the team as an associate director.
A Glasgow local, Alison brings with her over 13 years of agency experience working for some of the UK’s biggest brands.
Alison will be supported by a start-up team of three, with Stripe’s 26 strong award-winning Edinburgh office providing both strategic and operational support as required.
The Glasgow office is off to a flying start, with a major client win under its belt.
Following a three-way competitive pitch the Stripe Glasgow team has been appointed by Stewart Milne Homes to manage the six-figure consumer PR account across its entire Scotland and North England portfolio.
Juliet Simpson, said: “For the last seven years, we’ve worked incredibly hard to establish ourselves as Scotland’s leading consumer PR agency, delivering integrated communications campaigns that really make a difference.
“As an agency focussed on continued growth, we’d always planned to grow the brand out of Edinburgh and with Glasgow about to take centre stage in 2014, there was no better time than now.
“We’re as ambitious for our Glasgow office as we were when we started up in Edinburgh and to that end, we’ve invested in an extremely talented and passionate team from day one.
“That investment has already paid off, with the win of leading independent house builder, Stewart Milne, getting us off to a cracking start.
“Despite operating in a highly competitive market, we believe Stripe has a truly differentiated proposition for both clients and staff, which over time will allow us to mirror the success we have had in Edinburgh, elsewhere.”
