A fast-growing North East marketing agency has added to its number with the appointment of a former journalist and PR man.

Sunderland Software Centre-based Creo Communications has appointed Bryn Littleton as an account director, after winning a string of contracts over the past few months.

The business, which was set up by PR and marketing professional Louise Robinson in February this year, appointed its first team member, account executive Jess Ramsey, in June and has continued to grow its client base since. Latest addition Bryn joins the company from the North East Chamber of Commerce, where he was PR manager for more than three years.

Bryn said: “The opportunity to join such a dynamic, rapidly-growing new agency is one that could not be missed. I am genuinely excited by the projects we currently have on our books and the many fantastic challenges that lie ahead.

“Louise and Jess have grown the business faster than anyone could have anticipated and hopefully I’ll be able to help ensure we start 2015 on the front foot ready to drive forward further growth across the business.”

Creo specialises in marketing, PR, social media and design, and works with clients including Durham County Cricket Club, Newcastle-Gateshead Initiative, Nifco and Sunderland City Council. The company has recently added a string of new clients to its portfolio.

Louise Robinson, director at Creo Communications, added: “The rate at which Creo has grown has been fantastic. When the company first got started, I was optimistic about how the business would develop, but it really has been an incredible 10 months and I am thrilled to be adding to the team.

“Jess joined the team in June on an internship scheme from the University of Sunderland, and has been a real asset to the business.

“Bryn’s appointment brings a new dimension to the team. He is vastly experienced, has great links with the media and business community in the North East and has a personality and creativity that I am sure will really shine through with clients.”
