Social Communications has moved into larger offices in Leeds and appointed Julian Pearce as its senior consultant.

Pearce was corporate communications director at Propaganda until July this year and will be helping to develop new partnerships and opportunities for the agency.

“I’ve followed the great work Social Communications have done since they opened their Leeds office, and having prior experience in both PR and stakeholder communications, the decision to join was one that I jumped at,” he explained.

“Their client mix, aligned with the growth of the business and their refreshing attitude, means that I’m delighted to be joining the team at an exciting point in the life of the business.”

The news comes following a series of new client wins and a “doubling of turnover.” It means that its 7-strong Yorkshire team will now move to new offices in Platform in Leeds city centre.

“The past two years have been quite a journey for Social Communications – both in the Yorkshire region and more widely across the group. Our ongoing growth in Leeds, along with a string of new business wins have made the decision to upsize a necessity rather than a ‘nice to have’ and Platform provides a fantastic creative base for our expanding offer,” added Pete Wrathmell group director and head of Leeds office.

“Welcoming Julian onto the team, with his extensive knowledge from across corporate PR and public consultation will help aid our future growth and adds to an already strong team.”
