REFRESH PR GETS NEW OFFICE AND APPOINTS THREE TO EXPANDING TEAM



Champagne corks have been popping at Refresh PR this week as we celebrate moving into our new office and welcome three new recruits to our growing team.

 

We have relocated to the city’s stylish Northern Quarter, following a successful first half of the year which saw us scoop a number of significant new client wins, including the national PR campaign for the plastic plumbing and underfloor heating arm of national plastic piping manufacturer, Polypipe.

 

Joining our team at the new office will be account director, Sophie Smith. Previously at Tangerine PR where she was for over four years, Sophie will be working across B2B and consumer clients including Planitherm and Rare Creative Group. Sophie will also be heading up the Polypipe Plumbing & Heating campaign as well as Polypipe Home Solutions, the manufacturer’s consumer offering.

Recent graduate in Politics, Philosophy and Economics, Katherine Mountain, joins the team as junior account executive after working part time with us for the past 18 month alongside her university studies. Corey Kitchener is also new to the team and starts as junior account executive, having recently graduated in journalism from Sheffield Hallam University. Katherine and Corey will be working with both trade and consumer clients as well as supporting the team with new business opportunities.

 

Refresh PR’s founder and managing director, Laura Mashiter, said: “Refresh PR has had a fantastic few months, where we have seen real growth in the business with our national award success, client wins and with new team members.

 

“The site on Tariff Street fits perfectly with our future expansion plans and allows us to welcome clients, suppliers and visitors to a self-contained space that’s unique to us. It’s exciting to see what the future holds for Refresh PR!”

Gary Neville is a red no more - he's a greenie



As reported in the MEN today, Gary Neville has scrapped his plans to power his £8 million ‘Teletubby’ home in the Lancashire countryside with a giant wind turbine. Despite getting approval from the council for the turbine; at 127 foot, neighbours protested that it would become an eyesore. Neville had initially wanted to create the ‘greenest’ house in Britain, and by installing the wind turbine, it would have allowed the property to be completely carbon neutral.

 

Not wanting to upset his neighbours, Neville has now revoked his plans for the turbine and is now opting for a different ‘eco-system’ to power his green bunker. This ‘eco-system’ will now include a ground source heat pump, sustainable rainwater harvesting and photovoltaic cells, which convert light directly into electricity.

 

As Refresh PR has clients such as Polypipe Home Solutions and Planitherm Glass which specialise in green products and technology, we appreciate the importance of the former Manchester United captain taking the initiative to make a difference to the environment. Living sustainably and becoming more environmentally aware is becoming a more important aspect of life, and with new government actions such as The Green Deal around the corner, ‘green’ issues are more topical than ever before.

 

It’s fantastic that Gary Neville is going green, and although the rest of us don’t have millions of pounds to spend on building our dream ‘eco home’; there are still hundreds of options available to those who want to make a difference. Be it installing underfloor heating or rainwater harvesting, which are part of the range by Polypipe Home Solutions to reduce energy and water bills or opting for the UK’s most energy efficient glass, Planitherm – all eco measures will make a difference.
