“We’ve spent the past 18 months planning our growth strategy while protecting our current position during these tough times. Having managed to avoid any drop in profit or turnover,” said Georgie Cameron, Admiral founder in a statement, and continued “we’re now ready to move forwards and export Admiral’s expertise, creativity and dynamism to Manchester and, from there, elsewhere around the country. It’s a really exciting move for the company and as a team we’re looking forward to taking on fresh challenges.”
Recent steps to implement the strategy include the appointment of PR entrepreneur Stephen Waddington as non-executive chairman, and Chris Kelsey who joins from London agency Finsbury. Chris heads up the new public affairs division.
Admiral has clients all over UK. The company’s long-term plan is to become a well-respected pan-regional communications agency. To demonstrate this commitment to growth, the company already worked with international and Manchester City goal keeper Shay Given and his wife on their celebrity-studded charity event, Fashion Kicks 2010. Admiral also landed Manchester-based O3Talk, a new conference call provider set to revolutionize the current market.
