“They each represent a sector in which our agency has real depth of expertise and we’re delighted to be able to draw on that knowledge and understanding to assist them in achieving their aspirations for success.

“We currently have a strong client base in Manchester – particularly in the professional services sector – and we’re delighted to be expanding and developing that base and utilising our understanding of the Manchester market to develop our presence in the city.”

The agency says the wins followed a “renewed focus” on its Manchester operation.
