Record year for Story Comms leads to new hires
-Agency reports 40 per cent year-on-year revenue growth
-Key wins include GHD Group, WSP, Goodman and Avison Young
-Team bolstered with two new recruits
Story Comms has added new talent to its team as part of ambitious plans to build on record growth achieved in 2019.
The specialist B2B agency is celebrating its strongest year since its inception in 2015, with 40 per cent revenue growth secured in 2019 due to a range of regional, UK and global property and placemaking client wins.
The latest additions to Story’s client roster includes real estate advisors Avison Young, tech firm Movement Strategies and logistics and industrial space specialist Goodman.
Story Comms has also secured briefs with global engineering and professional services consultancies GHD Group and WSP, alongside serviced office space business Clockwise Offices, and Emerge Surf Birmingham – set to be the UK’s most landlocked wave park.
Amanda Lowe, Managing Director at Story Comms, said:
“Story is growing fast, thanks to some incredible clients that trust us completely, and the relentless ambition of our talented team.
“Clients come to us because we are honest, transparent and work hard to get them the results that matter. They value our approach and data driven creativity. Every one of our strategies uses insight to shape creative ideas – meaning they actually work, whether that’s through video, social or media and stakeholders.”
Story’s strong growth has led to the expansion of its team, with two new account executives joining. Jordan Lowe arrives after three years in a content role at the Institute of Directors, while Dani Wiggins joins from the University of Sheffield where she studied History and Politics.
“Half of our briefs are now national and international – many of those helping ambitious businesses grow into new markets. This is testament to the progress we have made, with Story now seen as the go-to agency for clients within the property, placemaking and professional services sectors.”
This news follows a year where Story saw a 100 per cent staff retention record, while making a string of promotions for its team. The agency also netted Midlands Media Awards’ PR Campaign of the Year and PRCA Dare Awards’ Small Consultancy of the Year.
