Specialist professional services PR firm, Suited Comms is going from strength to strength as it marks its third anniversary. Having established a solid roster of clients across the legal, financial and business services arena, the Birmingham-based boutique agency is gearing up for further growth, with seasoned PR professional, Sara Burgess, joining the team as a senior consultant.
In 2018, Suited Comms saw revenues increase by more than a third, ending the year on a high by securing the Midlands and South West PR brief for leading insolvency and business recovery practice, Begbies Traynor. The team has also expanded its training offer and is launching a suite of new courses tailored to the marketing and communications needs of the legal sector.
Sara Burgess brings almost two decades of expertise in the professional services sector to the team, having led PR programmes for Eversheds Sutherland, REED Recruitment, Bridgepoint Capital and Interlaw during her tenure at some of the Midlands’ largest communications agencies, as well as working on major blue chip accounts such as npower and Siemens. The move sees her reunite with former colleagues and joint directors of Suited Comms, James West and Joanna Barnsley.
On joining Suited Comms, Sara said: “Suited Comms offers a unique approach that is tailored for the professional services sector, which sees highly experienced PR practitioners both plan and deliver the work. This senior-level consultancy is especially valuable for professional services clients, where the subject matter is often complex and nuanced. I’ve amassed a significant amount of experience in this sector and have always enjoyed the work enormously, so Suited Comms is the perfect fit!”
Suited Comms director, James West added: “Sara is a hugely talented and experienced PR consultant and a real asset to our growing team. What’s more, having known and worked with Sara for many years, we’ve really hit the ground running as a senior team of three and are looking forward to putting our collective expertise together to expand our growing client base.”
