A fast-growing PR agency has returned to its home town of Brighouse.
Faith PR has opened new premises at Thornhill Beck Lane as part of its ambition to become the area’s leading PR and communications agency.
The agency, founded in 2007 by PR consultant Stefanie Hopkins, has recently secured several account wins and has outgrown its Birstall office where it has been based for 17 months.
Now it has returned to Brighouse where Stefanie and her business partner and husband, Carl Hopkins, also live.
Stefanie said: “We felt the time was right to move back to Brighouse and invest in the town. Throughout the recession, Brighouse has bucked the national trend and continued to innovate and attract new business.
“There are some exciting developments planned for the area such as ROKT’s high wire plans for the town’s grain silos.
“Plus, with the improved links to London, the area is becoming more and more desirable for people to live and work in.”
Said Carl: “Having lived in Brighouse for 15 years I have seen it prosper and now want to be part of its future. By moving Faith PR back into our hometown we hope to bring both business and jobs to the area and be part of the thriving business community.”
Faith PR is now based at Thornhill Brigg Mills, which was recently renovated by local development company Henderson Property.
The new Brighouse base will house Faith PR’s team of eight, which has recently expanded with the appointment of account manager Ellie MacDonald, who joined from the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce.
Last year, the agency was nominated as Business of the Year in the 2014 Network She Foundation International Women’s Day Awards.
Faith PR was also shortlisted in this year’s CIPR Pride Awards for its work for Denby Dale-based artisan ice cream producer Yummy Yorkshire.
