Podmore to head the hatch-group's Birmingham arm

The hatch-group has recruited Angela Podmore to lead its newly

formed operation in the Midlands.



Podmore joins from Birmingham's Incepta subsidiary Citigate Key

Communications - where she was a senior account director - and is being

asked to build a business with £1m fee income in three years.



hatch-group MD Michael Murphy said: 'Birmingham has some high quality PR

firms but not that many compared to the size of the market. The city is

a sea of construction cranes at the moment with 50,000 new service

sector jobs expected in the next two to three years. We think there is

opportunity there.'



Murphy added: 'With Podmore we have someone who knows the market well.

We will be focusing on the service sector, manufacturing, property,

issues management and government work,' he said.
