A COMMUNICATIONS agency has moved to new premises in Newcastle after the arrival of six new members of staff.
Cool Blue Brand Communications, which is based in Middlesbrough, has relocated its second office to the Toffee Factory in the Ouseburn area.
The move follows a string of contract wins worth more than £300,000 from international flooring specialist Tarkett, consumer goods giant Unilever, social housing provider Gentoo, as well as industry names Huntsman and Kromek.
The six appointments bring the group’s total staff numbers to 22.
Managing director Tanya Garland said: “I set some ambitious business targets at the beginning of the year and we are making excellent progress towards achieving them.
“Our recent growth and success – and our CIPR award nominations – are a testament to the talent and creativity of our team.
“It’s an exciting and changing time in PR. The advent of social media and huge advancements in technology bring many new opportunities for clients – and at Cool Blue we know how to make the two converge to best advantage.”
Cool Blue has been nominated across a range of categories in this year’s CIPR awards.
