Integrated agency RMS PR has expanded its team with the recruitment of two new account executives.

Tom Moss, a former European Junior Freestyle swimming champion, joins the Altrincham agency as PR & Marketing executive and will manage internal and external comms, while also handling a select number of clients from the financial sector.

English graduate Ben Smith will boost the firm’s consumer PR team, working with clients including Warburtons, Swizzels, and William Clark.

MD Ruth Shearn said: “For 25 years, all of our work has come from referrals and recommendation.  While we’re proud of this, it’s time to take a new approach and proactively seek out new clients.

“As well as being good for the balance sheet, this will help ensure everyone in the team remains excited and engaged.

“I’ve been caught on the back-foot in the past when a sudden surge of new clients has meant recruiting under duress so I was determined to spend time getting the right people in place ahead of a new business push.”
