The new office will be managed by Glaswegian Claire Morrison, former head of PR for Ultimo.

Its launch client is property developer Hammerson and its retail outlets, Silverburn Shopping Centre in Glasgow and Union Square in Aberdeen.

Graham Goodkind, group CEO and founder of Frank PR, said: "Glasgow is an exciting place to be from a media, client and talent perspective and hopefully McFrank can be right at the centre where that all fuses together. The UK PR industry is way too London-focused and misses out on a lot of the natural diversity the UK affords. We hope that opening in Scotland proves to be a canny move and sets us apart from the other more traditional agencies out there."

Morrison added: "I’m passionate about Scotland and have always been impressed with the work that has come out of Frank PR over the years. I am looking forward to working with the Frank PR management team to encapsulate what makes Frank so special and transport it up to Glasgow. McFrank is just like Frank PR but with a distinctly Scottish accent. A down-to-earth approach, heaps of creativity, strategic nous, with a wee dram of that all-important Glaswegian swagger."

The new opening follows the launch of Manc Frank in 2012. McFrank is being positioned as a first port of call for Scottish brands and business looking for national and local exposure, with access to the wider Frank network.
