The initial three-month programme will see Brando attempt to combat consumer cynicism and ignorance of offset mortgages, and creating a thought leadership platform for First Direct.
 
The team will be headed by Brando’s deputy managing director Shelley Morrell, who reports to First Direct PR manager Amanda Brown.
 
Brando was handed a major chunk of Mars’ consumer business this month. Following a pitch that included Ketchum, Brando now sits alongside Jackie Cooper PR on Mars’ ‘chocolate roster’.
