Sutton Coldfield-based WAA has further expanded its PR team following significant growth to its client portfolio.

Olivia Clifford-Beeston joins as a senior account executive, account executive Natalie Merrix and recent graduate Kerri Smith.

Dan Clifford, head of PR at WAA, said: “The last 12 months has shown that PR is an increasingly sought after weapon in the marketing arsenal, especially when budgets are under so much pressure.

“The beauty of being a part of an integrated agency is that we can link our PR expertise in with the other skill sets within WAA to provide clients with a really rounded solution that complements their other activity.

“Along with some great new business wins we have also seen a lot of our clients turning to us to fulfil their social media and digital communication requirements and that certainly is an area in which we see further growth going forward.”
