Speed 09 May 2017

The PR Week Top 150 UK PR Consultancies Ranking and Top 150 Consumer PR Ranking for 2017 came out this week and we’re delighted that Speed is part of both leagues once again.

In the UK Consultancies league, Speed featured in the Top 65 and made the Top 35 in the Consumer Agency Ranking.

Speed is the only agency with headquarters in the South West to be included in either league.

The ranking is based on a hugely successful year for Speed in 2016, which saw:

♦ Acquisition of food & hospitality agency Splash to form a new specialist division with clients including Nestlé Professional and Bidfood

♦ Growth in both our Business and Consumer client-base with some big client wins, including Merlin, Bissell, Airkix, Affinion International and Creditsafe

♦ Our best awards haul to date – 11 shortlists or wins and winning CV Magazine’s Best Commercial PR Agency in 2016

♦ Our Business & Corporate team ranking in the Top Five in B2B Marketing’s annual B2B PR league table – four places higher than on the previous year

“The UK PR industry is now estimated to be worth £12.9bn and employing approximately 83,000 people. Despite the uncertain political and economic situation, growth has continued as we help clients amid uncertainty to stand out in their respective markets and take advantage of the fast-changing media and digital landscape,” commented Kelly Pepworth, managing director at Speed.

“We deliver campaigns that are inextricably linked to our clients’ commercial imperatives and it is this approach that sets us apart and ensures long term relationships which defy the industry average.

“Our success is, as always, down to a brilliant team that guide and challenge clients with a seamless blend of business brains and creative muscle.”
