Lichfields appoints Newcastle PR communications company
A national planning and development consultancy has appointed Newcastle-based PR firm MHW as its PR and communications partner.
Lichfields, a consultancy firm founded in 1962, appointed MHW after a five-way competitive tender which included agencies from London.
MHW will support Lichfields’ in-house marketing team across an expanded brief that includes driving awareness, and interest in Lichfields brand, services and products.
Grant Swan, marketing director of Lichfields, explained: “MHW demonstrated a clear understanding of our business, our clients and how to bring the two together. The huge ambition that we share across Lichfields provides us with a really exciting opportunity to share parts of our brand story that we haven’t told before and we’re looking forward to delivering some great initiatives with Wayne and his team.”
Wayne Halton (pictured), director and owner at MHW PR, said: “We are delighted to be securing national business and especially a UK planning consultancy that has such a strong brand and reputation across the built environment.
MHW is also currently working with North East housebuilder Homes by Carlton, homes builder CorHaus, and property developer Modo Bloc.
