New hires at BIG Partnership

Creative communications specialists BIG Partnership has appointed two new senior staff to its Manchester team, having recently recorded its best-ever year.

Chris Olley (above, left) - formerly of Citypress - joins as account director on the corporate PR team. Emma Pearson (above, right), who moved from Red Havas, takes up a role as senior account manager on the consumer team.

BIG Partnership, which has offices in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Manchester, employs more than 120 people - and its Manchester location is now 12-strong after these two appointments. The regional office managed last year to double profit and secure income of around £750,000 - the best year yet.

Sarah Lawless (above, centre), director and head of BIG’s Manchester office said: “Chris and Emma join us at a great time, as we celebrate our most successful year to date here in Manchester. They will both be instrumental in the continued growth of the agency. 

“Winning more integrated accounts, which combine digital, marketing, design and PR, will be a key growth area for the business over the next 12 months. Chris and Emma have hit the ground running with our existing clients, who are already seeing the benefits of their combined expertise.” 

BIG Partnership Manchester has clients including RBS, Peel Ports, Turley, Graham Construction, Stewart Milne Homes, and North West Cancer Research.
