A business merger between two North East-based agencies, C-PR Communications and DigiPro Media, has created a new fully integrated company specialising in web design, branding, online marketing, social media management, photography and public relations.
Founder of C-PR Communications Catherine Harland, an experienced public relations professional, joins DigiPro Media as its new director of media and communications.
Catherine will work closely with DigiPro Media’s managing director, Ryan Harland, who established the agency in 2012, Steph Harland, the agency’s social media manager and web designer and photographer Nick Skinner.
The new digital agency, which recently relocated to Hoults Yard in Newcastle Ouseburn, also plans to extend into other disciplines beyond PR and launch additional services to its current client portfolio, which includes Specsavers, Slaley Hall Hotel, Durham CCC, George Bond Design, The Castledene Group and a number of businesses in the UAE. The team is also looking to double its workforce by 2018.
Catherine says: “This merger gives us the opportunity to deliver exactly what clients demand from both traditional PR and digital PR. Our mission is to bring together enthusiastic minds to produce the best work in their respective fields.”
