Yorkshire agencies merge to form Royal Pilgrim Communications
Two Yorkshire communications agencies have merged to form Royal Pilgrim Communications, which will specialise in the property and development sectors.
The firm will be headquartered in Leeds, with satellite offices in York and Sheffield, and brings together PilgrimPR and Resolve Public Affairs.
The founding directors are Scott Royal, previously managing director of Resolve Public Affairs, and Ben Pilgrim, who ran PilgrimPR for more than 10 years.
Royal said: "Royal Pilgrim Communications will provide a unique service to clients by pooling our skills and experience. Both companies work for many of the leading names in the development and regeneration sectors and have gained good reputations for getting positive results for clients."
Pilgrim added: "I have known Scott for many years and have been very impressed with his work on major projects throughout the UK. By joining together we can scale new heights and achieve even more.
“This merger will build on the success both firms have had in the property industry and we intend that the outcome for clients will be a high quality service, much like when Mr Rolls met Mr Royce."
The company's clients include Henry Boot Developments, Caddick Group and Bruntwood.
