Worcestershire-based Whitefoot-Forward PR has added a new member to its team.

The public relations agency in Hartlebury has appointed Porcha Treanor as its newest PR account manager, taking the team to six.

Ms Treanor has a journalism background as well as working as a media and communications officer for West Mercia Police.

The appointment comes as Whitefoot Forward PR adds two new clients to its portfolio. Leading Worcester-based accountancy practice Richards Sandy Partnership has chosen the agency to represent it for 2012, growing Whitefoot’s client base in the professional services sector. Kingswinford-based Garland Products, a British manufacturer of practical garden products, has also appointed Whitefoot Forward PR to run a consumer campaign for a product launch to the UK market.

Managing director Michelle Whitefoot said: “Porcha’s appointment, added to these two new clients, is a wonderful way to have started the year. We feel extremely lucky that the past two years have seen significant growth for our business, and we plan to continue to build on the skills and services we offer our clients in 2012.”
