North East PR agency strengthens team following key client wins
April 4, 2023
PR and content agency, McBryde & Co, has welcomed a new member of staff into its team, while also celebrating the promotion of another, following a string of new business successes.
Emily Bloor, a recent graduate of Newcastle University, has been hired as a PR and content executive, and Eve Daly has advanced to senior PR and content executive after a year with the agency. CIPR’s ‘Small Consultancy of the Year’ is also on the hunt for an additional account director.
On her new role, Emily said: “As a company that promotes a genuine investment in the development of its colleagues and clients, the atmosphere at McBryde & Co is one in which I am encouraged to thrive.
“My English Literature and History degree emphasised the power of words, specifically the way that they can be used to bring people and ideas to life. Over the past few weeks, I have embedded this into my new role, utilising my research and writing skills to drive the ambitions of my team.”
Speaking on her promotion, Eve said: “I am thrilled to embark on the next stage of my PR career. As I move forward, I do so with a team of inspirational women, who continue to offer endless support and encouragement. As an example of this, I have just completed a CIPR foundation award in public relations that has helped cement my knowledge of the discipline and fast track my career.
“It is wonderful to see our team expand, and Emily has already made her mark with her endless enthusiasm.”
Established in 2019, McBryde & Co has grown year on year both in turnover, clients and staff. Founder, Rachel McBryde, has a keen interest in supporting North East talent and with a background in journalism, she has a wealth of experience to pass on to a new generation of PR professionals.
Speaking on the company’s growth, Mrs McBryde said: “It’s been a whirlwind. When I first started the business, I didn’t expect to have a team of eight within three years – and be in a position to recruit more people. I am so proud of what we have accomplished and the clients we work with are genuinely incredible.
“Our company is founded on the delivery of results-driven content within a business-to-business environment, we put our clients firmly at the heart of everything we do and I believe that our continued growth is a testament to the dedication of our team, the quality of our work and the results we consistently deliver.
“I am so pleased to welcome Emily onboard, she is settling in well and enjoying getting to know her colleagues and deepening her knowledge of PR.
“Eve has been with us for over a year now, and it has been a pleasure to watch her grow and develop, approaching each day with great passion.”
McBryde & Co is a business-to-business PR and content agency specialising in the public sector, sustainability and professional services. It recently moved to a larger space within the i6 building at Charlotte Square in Newcastle upon Tyne. It is currently on the lookout for an experienced account director to help shape the team and the business.
