Full-service Midlands marketing agency, Gough Bailey Wright (GBW), has welcomed two new faces to its team.
The PR department has expanded, following a series of new business wins and the growth of existing accounts.
Both Simmie Korotane, who joins GBW as Senior Account Manager, and Sarah Taylor as Account Manager, are already making their mark at the award-winning consultancy.
With a Master’s Degree in Marketing, Simmie discovered a passion for PR when she embarked on her career in the industry more than 13 years ago. It was the reputation of the Bromsgrove-based agency, that delivers the full suite of marketing disciplines, that attracted Simmie to the role, as well as the accounts she will be working on which include Bobby’s Foods and Thomas Horton LLP Solicitors.
“As the longest running marketing agency in the West Midlands, GBW has a reputation that is testament to its work,” said Simmie.
“It is the perfect place to further develop my career and I’m really excited about the challenges ahead.”
Journalism graduate Sarah, aged 33, also brings a wealth of PR and Internal Communications experience to the consultancy. Having started her career as a regional news reporter, she is looking forward to working on a variety of GBW’s exciting accounts including Drayton Manor, Bromsgrove District Housing Trust and Bovis Homes.
“Having the opportunity to work with such high-profile, national clients is really exciting and the creativity of the team here is inspiring too,” said Sarah.
Gough Bailey Wright employs 27 people at its offices in Worcester Road, Bromsgrove. First established in 1936, it provides both traditional and online communications across its public relations, community affairs, digital and creative departments.
Managing Director Sue Bailey said: “Growing our PR team is a reflection of the agency’s success and we are delighted to introduce more new talent following a period of growth.
“The recruitment of high calibre employees is very important and I’m sure Simmie and Sarah will be an asset to the business.”
