W North Named Outstanding NE Agency By CIPR

W North has been named the North East’s outstanding agency at the region’s annual CIPR awards ceremony.

The new consultancy, established in April last year by London based W Communications, made it a hat-trick of awards on the night, also picking up Best Consumer Relations Campaign and Best Event for its campaign to take art brand Reeves to the people of London, Dublin and Manchester.

W North, which now has ten full time staff, is W Communications’ second UK office and was opened to offer extended insight and knowledge into W’s clients who required deeper and more meaningful communications activity in communities across the UK and works in partnership with its London office on clients including PG Tips, McGuigan Wines, Nest and Red Dog Saloon. W North has also developed a growing number of its own clients, delivering campaigns for the likes of Traidcraft, Lane7, Revolution and Steampunk Gin.

Head of W North, Christian Cerisola said: “We’ve come a long way in a really short space of time. Being recognised by our peers in the CIPR as the best in the region is testament to the growing team here. It’s been an incredible start that we’re intent on building on rapidly in 2019.”

The CIPR judges commented: “W North are clearly successful, fast-growing and have a strong business strategy. The judges were especially pleased to see a demonstrable commitment to development and to the PR profession in such a new company.”

W Communications MD, Richard Tompkins added: “We’re incredibly proud of the team in Newcastle, who have exceeded our expectations at every turn and we’re pleased that the judges identified our commitment to their development as professionals. We’ve worked hard to nurture outstanding new team members who are every inch in the mould of how the wider W team deliver remarkable and impactful results for its clients. Long may the success continue.”

Multi award-winning W has grown to more than 100 staff, with successful operations in Amsterdam and Singapore, as well as Newcastle and its London HQ.
