Macclesfield-based B2B agency Skout has appointed Rebecca Brown as account executive and Becky McArdle as senior account executive.
McArdle has joined after working as a marketing officer for Shropshire Council’s supported employment service, while Brown joins after several years in the retail sector.
Managing director Rob Skinner said: “Becky and Rebecca are both great additions to the growing team at Skout and have already started to make their mark.
“I am confident they’ll contribute significantly to our plans to be a leading B2B communications agency. We also seem to have a knack of hiring people with the same names – adding two Rebecca’s to our existing two Claire’s and two Alex’s! It makes for interesting nicknames in the office.”
Brown added: “After finishing my education, I needed to find a career that would enrich both my personal and professional development, and I knew straight away that Skout was the perfect fit for me.
“My future at Skout looks promising and I’m looking forward to building on my PR knowledge and progress my career with the company.”
McArdle said: “I’m really happy to be back in agency life. I love working with the variety of clients and getting creative with new campaign ideas. My history in B2B has definitely helped and I’m looking forward to building on this experience and learning about new industries.”
