"We wanted a PR agency to share our values as well as be very hands-on with us, and Scriba ticked all our boxes"
Huddersfield-based technical PR specialist Scriba PR has reported its biggest client win month to date in October, taking its total current number to 36.
The firm welcomed six new client projects on board and has more recently secured a seventh, predicting 2019 to be the biggest year yet.
Commercial cleaning innovator Regenex, motor finance and insurance platform DealTrak, occupational health expert Prohms, solicitors firm Invalesco Family Law and glazing specialist Dortech Maintenance, are amongst the new brands to have joined Scriba’s client roster.
Smarter Business Processes – Smartsheet and AppSheet consultants – also joined the B2B PR agency last month, to promote the company’s New York expansion. And finally, existing client Cascade HR has invested in an additional retainer, in order to further boost the firm’s digital footprint.
Managing director at Scriba PR, Katie Mallinson, commented on the growth: “Our newest clients are from the sectors we are passionate about, so we’re very excited to be working with these brands! They are all different, but are each looking for content-driven support to help develop their businesses in 2019 and beyond.”
Scriba’s growth to date has been entirely organic, and it’s the continuity of word-of-mouth recommendations that has seen the firm successfully acquire the seven new clients. DealTrak and Regenex were subsequently won via competitive pitch.
Simon Banoub, marketing director at DealTrak, explained why they chose Scriba: “All the companies that pitched were of a high standard, so the competition was tough. Scriba was the last to see us and their clear knowledge of the tech sector, and their passion to grow brands was exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a PR agency to share our values as well as be very hands-on with us, and Scriba ticked all our boxes.
“With the help of Scriba, we hope to further evolve our business over the coming year, as well as be recognised as an authoritative figure in our sector.”
Katie added: “We see it as our role to give organisations – who often feel they are their industry’s ‘best-kept secret’ – a voice, and that’s exactly what we intend to do for DealTrak, and the other businesses.”
The news coincides with the appointment of account manager Ruth Harrison-Davies from Ginetta, as well as the promotion of two team members – Paige Catton to junior account manager and Luci Ownsworth as PR assistant.
