Yorkshire PR firm celebrates four years in business

A Yorkshire-based PR agency is celebrating four years of trading with two new client wins and a unique event.

Leeds-based MacComms has won contracts to manage the PR for iconic Leeds building, Leeds Corn Exchange and behavioural research company, SimpleUsability.

MacComms is responsible for managing the public and media relations for both businesses, supporting Leeds Corn Exchange with a variety of events, business and tenant news throughout the year. SimpleUsability, run by early pioneer of online technology Guy Redwood, has also joined as a client, with MacComms supporting the promotions of the firm as it continues to grow in its 18th year.

The news comes at an exciting time for MacComms as it celebrates four years in business by holding a unique event at Leeds Corn Exchange. MacComms’ clients, their products and services will be showcased at the unique networking event on Thursday 16th May 5-8pm. It will also raise vital funds for local charity, Simon on the Streets.

MacComms, formed in April 2015 by multi-award-winning businesswoman Ellie MacDonald, has helped hundreds of firms to raise their profile with clients across tech, manufacturing, food and drink including The Car Buying Group, Cooper King Distillery and Vet-AI.

Ellie commented: “The last four years have absolutely flown by. It certainly hasn’t been easy but I’m incredibly proud to have built a business from nothing to one which now represents some of the most impressive Yorkshire-based businesses. The new client wins are a great way to mark four years in business and it is fitting that we hold a celebratory event in the stunning Leeds Corn Exchange, showcasing these incredible firms whilst supporting a charity close to my heart.”

May also marks six months since MacComms adapted its business model to an outsourced director-led approach. Ellie is now supported by a team of several professionals across niche aspects of PR, journalism, copywriting, marketing, event and social media management.

The firm plans to build on current success and grow with additional freelancers added to the MacComms community to continue to support entrepreneurial firms with their own growth plans.
