Harrison Cowley is to open a Northern Ireland office, its fourth agency

launch in 12 months.



The new consultancy, Harrison Cowley Belfast will open on 1 July and be

run from existing Belfast agency The Davidson Cockcroft Partnership.



Agency partners, Sheila Davidson and Gwynneth Cockcroft, will manage

both offices, initially using their staff of six.



Clients on Davidson Cockcroft’s books include the Dairy Council for

Northern Ireland while Harrison Cowley’s additions include Camelot.



The Belfast launch is part of Harrison Cowley’s five-year plan, Focus

2000, which is designed to triple its business. In this year’s Top 150

rankings the agency showed a 26 per cent fee increase and it is

currently in the ‘planning stages’ for the launch of a Leeds office.



IPR Northern Ireland president Brian McKibbin said there had been few

start-ups in the province since the 1994 cease-fire but existing

agencies were experiencing growth.



He added that although the province’s PR industry was optimistic about

business prospects, it is waiting to hear how the Manchester bombing

will affect the peace talks.
