Leeds-based integrated marketing agency, Pure Creative Marketing, has launched a public relations (PR) division following increased demand from its clients. The new department, which will be headed up by PR Director Leanne Bayston, will complete the agency’s full service marketing offering.
Leanne brings a wealth of experience developed over seven years working for a range of agencies across the UK on regional, national and international PR campaigns. She will be responsible for developing and delivering PR and social media strategies for clients. Leanne has worked at a number of award-winning agencies including Working Word in Cardiff, Bray Leino in Bristol, Turn Key and iseepr in Leeds.
Established in 1998, Pure Creative Marketing offers design, marketing, digital and photography in its 5,000 sq ft studio at its premises in Pudsey; clients include Johnsons Dry Cleaners, Joseph Turner, Silver Cross and Mintex.
Gary Dooley, Director of Pure Creative Marketing, said: “More and more of our clients are requesting a one stop solution for all of their marketing needs and PR was the final piece of the puzzle for Pure. Leanne has worked for some of the UK’s best marketing and PR agencies and we’re pleased to have her on board.”
Pure has organically grown over the last 15 years with a 20% increase in turnover year on year for the last three years.
Leanne adds: “Pure Creative Marketing delivers some exceptional work for great brands but it has never shouted about itself. My aim is to not only build the reputation of our clients, but also to raise awareness of Pure which has, until now, remained one of Leeds’ hidden gems.
“It is an exciting time to join Pure as it continues to grow and I’m looking forward to the new challenge.”
