Manchester-based corporate and consumer PR firm Staniforth PR has

launched a London operation headed by former Text 100 associate director

Ian Haworth.



Haworth has joined Staniforth as managing director of its London office

having spent two years running Text’s consumer business unit. Prior to

that he worked at Biss Lancaster and was head of PR at Granada

Television.



The six-strong office has been established to service existing

Staniforth clients such as Marks and Spencer and also to pitch for new

business.



The agency has just won its first piece of consumer business, having

been appointed by mineral water brand Volvic to handle its UK consumer

PR.



Haworth said: ’Initially the agency will have a consumer focus but with

my background at Text and Granada we will hopefully become fairly

diverse.’



Staniforth’s Manchester office employs 55 people and bills around pounds

2 million in fees. It is owned by managing director Phil Staniforth.
