Finance Yorkshire has appointed Cicada Communications to help manage its communications.

Providing seed corn, loan and equity linked investments, the agency primarily helps small and medium sized businesses with finance from £15k to £2m.

Cicada’s role will be to promote this service to businesses which required gap-funding.

“We are pleased to have appointed Cicada to manage our PR contract – the agency has a solid track record in PR and communications and we look forward to working with the Cicada team over the coming months,” said Alex McWhirter, chief executive of Finance Yorkshire.

Harrogate-based Cicada was founded in 1987 by managing director, Di Burton.
