PR consultancy Liquid strengthens team with ten new appointments

Integrated communications consultancy, Liquid, has strengthened the team based at its Birmingham office with ten new appointments following its continued success and growth over the last five months.

The hires include account director Dan Hill, senior designer Warren Clarke, senior account manager Martha Edwards, digital marketing manager James Read and account manager Mali Lewis.

Claire Gillespie also joins the consultancy as office administrator along with senior social media executive Stephanie Marshall and three junior account executives, Izzy Jenkins, Owen Maginnis and Leah Benthin.

The rapid expansion bolsters the existing team and adds a wealth of experience across digital, communications and design to support the growing number of new and renewed client contracts and the organisation’s ambitious growth trajectory.

Liquid’s success has not gone unrecognised with the consultancy earning several industry awards including Top Medium Consultancy for the South West and Midlands at the 2020 PRCA DARE Awards. Liquid was also ranked 4th in the PR Week’s top public sector consultancies.

To support the new appointments and growing client base, Liquid has also made a series of promotions, with Clare Evans taking the helm as head of social media and Helen Powell as the consultancy’s head of digital.

Elsewhere in the business, Hollie Jones and Chloe Baker have been promoted to junior account directors, Ross Copping to senior account manager, and Emma Johansson to account manager.

On the appointments, Liquid CEO, Lis Lewis-Jones said: “Since lockdown Liquid has implemented a four-point strategy putting people and business at the heart of our approach.

“Working, recruiting and inducting people remotely isn’t without its challenges but our close-knit team has adapted and our growth over the last few months is testament to their hard work and focus.

“Having a diverse business proposition and client base has helped us remain resilient and grow, despite the challenging business climate brought on by the pandemic.”
