Strong growth and new issues-focus mark fast start to 2015 for Whitehouse

Westminster based communications specialist the Whitehouse Consultancy has unveiled a new website and focus on ‘issues-led communications’ following a brisk start to 2015 and the winning of a number of new accounts.

The agency, which was founded by Chairman Chris Whitehouse as a specialist public affairs consultancy in 1998, has repositioned itself to reflect an expansion of its offering in recent years. The Whitehouse team has also launched a new mobile-friendly website as it continues its growth as one of the UK’s leading independently-owned communications consultancies.

Whitehouse has also announced the retention of a series of new clients, including IdeasTap, SITA, and public relations for the Urology Trade Association.

Helen Munro, Managing Director of the Whitehouse Consultancy, said:

““It’s been a positive start to 2015. We’ve seen a high number of enquiries from organisations of various sectors, and have retained valued clients in additions to extending our service offering to a number of our existing accounts. This reflects a degree of uncertainty as to what the future holds amidst the closest election in living memory, and a need for organisations to plan how they will engage with policy and the media.

“Our decision to position ourselves as an ‘issues-led’ consultancy is reflective of how we’ve grown since our establishment in 1998. We’ve historically been known as a specialist public affairs agency. This remains a core part of our business, but we want to underline the extent of our service offering that includes public relations and crisis communications.”

The Whitehouse team has also added to its team of more than 20 consultants with the appointments of Declan Mullaney as an Associate Consultant, along with the promotion of Joanna Camadoo, Elias Papadopoulos and Robert Ede to Associate Consultant.

The Whitehouse Consultancy has also recently come in at number 13 in PR Week’s Public Affairs Table 2015.
