Full service public affairs agency, Social Communications, has appointed Chris Walker to head up its growing PR division.
Walker is set to help agency directors John Quinton-Barber and Caty Cartwright grow Social’s public relations offering.
The Manchester-based agency, which was founded in 2013, has three core services: as well as PR it offers planning consultation and the services of its in-house creative agency.
Walker said: “I’ve joined Social Communications after buying into John’s vision for the growth of the business in the next five years. The agency is not the biggest yet, but our aim is to become the best-regarded integrated PR, creative and planning consultation agency.”
Quinton-Barber said: “Bringing Chris to Social Communications is a clear indication of our intention for further growth in 2016.”
Walker joins Social Communications from The BIG Partnership where he led the agency’s English PR team, based in Liverpool.
Social Communications currently has a team of 11 consultants. Its list of clients include Tesco, RBS and Places for People.
