A GROWING communications firm in Leamington is celebrating after being shortlisted for three prestigious industry awards.

R&Co Communications has been named as a finalist in three categories at the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Midlands PRide awards. Two of the categories recognise its work on PR campaigns for clients, while the third sees R&Co shortlisted for ‘small PR consultancy of the year’.

R&Co was formerly known as Newsline PR and recently rebranded after more than 40 years in business. In addition to its office in Warwick Place, the agency has just taken office space in The Mailbox, Birmingham, after growing demand for its services.

Peter Robinson, managing director of R&Co Communications, said: “We have such depth of knowledge and experience in our team, it is a credit to all of them that we have been recognised as one of the best small agencies in the Midlands.

“Our team do brilliant work for our clients day in, day out, and we are all delighted to see their efforts being recognised by the CIPR. We’re looking forward to the award ceremony in October and will be keeping our fingers crossed.”

It has been a busy few months for R&Co, with the firm rebranding to showcase its wide range of marketing and communications services. As well as PR and social media, the agency supports clients with marketing, digital and design projects.

R&Co has also been growing its team, with the recent addition of social media account director Komal Khedkar and the arrival of account director Bernie Pegg earlier this year.

Komal has a wealth of experience in organic and paid social media marketing, while Bernie is a former newspaper journalist with agency and in-house PR experience.

Peter said: “Our new team members have worked with national and international brands at top agencies, adding to the already considerable expertise in our team. This has meant we can offer our clients a more comprehensive service than ever before, and we’re already working on some exciting new projects.

“With our new brand, new Birmingham office space and Komal and Bernie joining us, there is a great momentum at R&Co right now. Being shortlisted in the CIPR awards is the icing on the cake.”
