Last year, the agency group reported its largest annual profit before tax with a 6% rise to £624k for the year ending 31 July 2016. Turnover in the same period went up by 7% (£9.3m).
Laurna Woods, CEO at Beattie, said: “It was a year of achievement and progress for Beattie Group. We won the large PR Agency of The Year title and a national newspaper crowned us Britain’s third best medium-sized employer.
“We announced our expansion into Canada and opened our state-of-the-art training academy, The Beattie Bootcamp, in Scotland. We redesigned our websites, published our culture handbook and added numerous big names to our client list.”
New clients won by Beattie during 2016 included retail chain Smiggle, Dairy Crest, Discovery Channel, High Street TV and the Vue cinema chain.
Woods added: “While we cannot predict the impact of Brexit on us or the economy, 2017 promises to be another flourishing year for Beattie.”
Beattie has eight offices in the UK including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds and Glasgow.
