Entrepreneurial duo launch niche consultancy
July 19, 2017
Rebecca Taylor, who has worked as a freelance PR Consultant in the property industry for over 10 years has teamed up with her husband, Simon Taylor, former head of office agency at Naylors to create Four Walls PR Ltd.
Rebecca Taylor, director at Four Walls said: “Carving out a niche has worked really well for me over the past 10 years, I have grown my client base organically through word of mouth and have retained many clients on a long-term basis. Working as an extension of their teams has helped me to understand my clients’ businesses inside out and this has been a key to success.
“After winning a number of new clients recently I am delighted to be joining forces with Simon in order to offer our clients a unique blend of public relations, marketing and property agency expertise so that they can benefit from our sector specific knowledge, experience and contacts.”
Rebecca, who started her career at UK Land Estates in 1999, has worked on a number of high profile projects in recent years including the rebrand of commercial property consultancy, Naylors, the promotion of Portobello Trade Park in Gateshead, the launch of new Northumberland construction training centre, Trainbase and multiple projects for Silverstone Building Consultancy, who have retained her services for 8 years.
Four Walls PR hopes to capitalise on opportunities brought about by new property developments in the region, at a time when there is a significant level of activity in the market, including student accommodation schemes, new housing projects and large-scale commercial development.
Simon Taylor, co-director who also previously worked at Jones Lang LaSalle added: “After nearly 20 years of working in commercial property agency I have been involved in the marketing and disposal of some of the region’s most high profile projects and bring this unique insight to the business. We believe that we are the only North East-based PR Consultancy to specialise solely in the property sector and offer this combination of skills.
“We aim to be the first port of call for investors and developers looking to promote their work in the North East as well as the professional teams involved from the design stage through to completion”.
The Newcastle-based firm has built up a network of specialist suppliers who it will work with to offer a fully integrated service including branding and design, digital marketing, photography & print.
The firm will continue to work with established clients including Ravensworth Property Developments, HTA Real Estate, Roberts Environmental, Godfrey Syrett and Anvil Homes.
