Rich Leigh & Company to open Manchester office

Rich Leigh & Company, the eponymous agency set up last year by the founder of stunt and campaign website PRexamples, is to open a second office in Manchester.

The new office is to be headed by Emily Urban-Smith, former account manager at Red Consultancy and director of Urban Mole Consultancy, who has worked on major clients including Boots, Coca-Cola and GlaxoSmithKline. She has worked for Leigh as a consultant previously.

The new office follows account wins involving firms based in northern England, including Macclesfield-based sports nutrition brand Monkey Nutrition and Newcastle-based online fundraising platform Givey.

Urban-Smith said: "Having worked with Rich before and knowing he wanted to expand, Manchester seemed the perfect place to help grow the agency and take advantage of new opportunities."

Leigh said: "With clients already in the North, I can’t think of anybody better placed to help us take advantage of the opportunity I see to grow the agency."

The agency's other clients include estate agent Hanover West End.
