Huntsworth expands its PR empire

Huntsworth’s voracious appetite for agencies has continued with the acquisition of Haslimann Taylor – the largest independent PR business in the Midlands.

Huntsworth will retain the agency’s brand identity, and the company will continue under its existing management team, led by managing director Bronwen Eames.

Founder Patzi Haslimann will remain as deputy chairman on a year’s contract, while Alison Clarke of Huntsworth has been named chairman.

The acquisition follows Huntsworth’s purchase of hatch-group, Harrison Cowley and EHPR, among others, over the past three years.

Haslimann Taylor clients include Bryant Homes, Harvester, Vintage Inns and Goodyear Dunlop.

Haslimann was paid an initial £1.3m in cash and shares for the agency, set up in 1987.
