New client appointments include online learning platform developer Wranx, the Liverpool Commercial District BID and Science North, which has briefed the agency with promoting the inaugural Business of Science Conference in Manchester in May.

It’s also been appointed by the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) to formally launch the growth hub.

Anna Heyes, managing director of Active Profile, said: “It has been a really strong year for us so far with new clients in our key sectors of property and regeneration and science and technology, as well as extended contracts from existing clients.

“Towards the end of 2015, we moved to larger office premises in Manchester in order to support the growing demand we’re experiencing from clients that are based in and around the city.”

Promotions within the team have seen senior account manager Natalie Fox promoted to junior account director, Carrie Allen to senior account executive and Jo Spragg is now a senior account director. Nicky Hughes has been promoted to associate director and head of property and regeneration.
