Holmes Chapel, Cheshire, United Kingdom, 2010/09/23 - The Scott Partnership, global B2B PR and marketing communications consultancy based in Cheshire, UK, announces the opening of its first North American presence with satellite offices in Massachusetts and Connecticut.
The Scott Partnership, Inc. will have a strong focus in the Business-to-Business field, with specialisms in life sciences, chemicals and plastics, and food and beverages. The US operation will predominantly expand, service and develop new clients as well as support existing customers based in North America.
As part of this expansion, The Scott Partnership has appointed seasoned marketing executive Luke Giroux as Vice President for Business and Client Services. Luke Giroux brings more than 15 years’ experience working in B2B marketing, leading campaigns for global customers. Based in Connecticut, Luke has held senior positions in Martino & Binzer, Maier Advertising, and Mason and Madison.
The Scott Partnership continues its successful expansion, having outperformed the PR industry during the largest worldwide recession in 2009 and 2010 by achieving double digit growth each year, increased profitability and headcount expansion. Significant new client wins from North America during 2009 and 2010 have led to the investment into this new operation.
Kath Darlington, CEO at The Scott Partnership said, “The Scott Partnership has been active in North America for a number of years. The opening of our North American operation is a natural step to support our existing sizeable client base, as well as new customers as the business grows. Luke is a welcome addition to the team and brings exceptional client and commercial skills. We look forward to continuing to support our global clients with our strong team, while enhancing The Scott Partnership’s global footprint.”
With the opening of both North America and China offices in 2010, The Scott Partnership now employs more than twenty-five professionals worldwide who are able to deliver multi-lingual campaigns into Europe, North America and Asia. The business comfortably enjoys above industry-average staff and client retention.
The Scott Partnership (scottpr.com), located near Manchester, UK, was founded in 1996 as a specialist business-to-business PR consultancy for the scientific, technology and retail industries. The company has expanded year-on-year and is committed to building strong and lasting relationships. With clients in North America, UK, mainland Europe and Asia Pacific, this extension to The Scott Partnership’s portfolio strengthens the agency’s North American customer base and increases the presence in global technology markets.
