Today we’re announcing the launch of a brand new initiative that will seek to identify the leading in-house communications talent in the region.

The Prolific North Top 50 In-house Communicators 2015, sponsored by Havas Media Group, is the latest in our series of hugely well-read features on the people and companies that make up our sector in the North.

These have included our continuing series of Top 50 features on the region’s leading digital, PR and integrated agencies, as well as our attempt to bring together the Top 100 Prolific Northerners and our focus on the Top 100 Brands.

Havas Media powered by hmg logoOur latest feature will cover both the public and private sector as we look to present the definitive guide to the leading in-house communicators currently based in the North.

Although the majority of Government departments and FTSE100 companies are listed in London and the South East, there are still a host of major corporates and public bodies which run their marketing and comms teams and operations from the region.

From large corporates through to public bodies and councils, there are hundreds of outstanding communicators operating in the North and this feature will look to bring them together for the first time.

Criteria for inclusion in the list will include factors such as the size and market presence of the company or organisation, budget, experience and achievements.

We will be publishing the full list over two days in early July. Anyone wishing to put forward a name for inclusion should email
