Creative communications agency Pace has recruited four new starters as it celebrates its third birthday and continues to grow and attract new clients.
Two new account managers, a designer and junior digital executive have joined the company, which has grown to a team of 17 since launching in September 2015.
It follows recent additions to its growing portfolio of clients, including Nottingham-based software firm Peppermint Technology and Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire, a £9.2m scheme to help businesses save energy.
Account manager Mike West has joined Pace from Smith Creative, an agency in Newcastle where he worked with a number of high-profile clients including the University of Leeds, Cheshire East Council and Historic England.
Fellow account manager Amy Jackson spent almost ten years working in advertising at the Hull Daily Mail before joining Fred Marketing in Hull where she was an account manager for five years.
Designer Guy Raimes has worked in the industry for eight years, mainly in Leeds, having also completed a stint in London. Guy was previously head of studio at the Individual Agency and has worked with national and international clients including Heineken, London 2012, Southbank Centre and Arco.
Junior digital executive Alana Claxton is a Manchester Met advertising and brand management graduate who has recently spent time travelling in America and Asia.
Pace MD Anita Pace said: “The new members of the Pace team each bring different skills and experiences and ensure that we continue to offer an excellent service to our existing and new clients.
“Our ability to recruit strong candidates reflects the positive working environment we have created at Pace which I am really proud of and which also enables us to deliver work of the highest standard.
“I’m also delighted to welcome our latest clients, which include businesses and organisations from a variety of sectors, demonstrating our ability to successfully manage marketing communications across a breadth of subjects.”
