Leeds-based Brand8 PR has been selected to work with online retailer SportShoes.com following a competitive pitch process.

Brand8 PR will work with the online retailer to provide public relations, content, social media and search consultancy for its corporate, B2B and trade audiences.

The agency, founded in 2010, has a range of clients including online bathroom retailer Victoria Plum, law firm Gordons and Norway-headquartered global sustainable technology company TOMRA.

Brett Bannister, SportsShoes.com Managing Director, said: “We appointed Brand8 PR due to the agency’s strong corporate communications credentials and successful experience of working with online retailers.

“We have ambitious national and international growth plans for our business, so it was essential for us to find a partner able to support us in achieving both our commercial and ESG objectives. The Brand8 PR team have already shown their capability and we look forward to further developing our relationship with them.”

Rob Smith, Brand8 PR managing director, added: “SportsShoes.com is a highly successful, purpose-led business. From its commitment to sustainability to the nationwide running and community initiatives it supports and delivers, it is a retailer with a distinct difference.

“Brett and his senior management team have a clear vision of where they want to take the business and we are excited to have the opportunity to play our part in helping them deliver it.”
