Liberty PR expands two months after launch


Start-up agency Liberty PR has expanded its team and taken on larger premises just two months after opening its doors in Market Harborough.

Founded in July by David Watts and Lisa Jolly, Liberty PR is an independent communications agency with its roots in high-value retail and consumer PR.

The agency launched from a small office at Harborough Innovation Centre and has now moved to a larger office within the centre to accommodate the growing team.

With an expanding portfolio of accounts to service across the Midlands and South, the agency has welcomed Laura White as Account Director and Tom Silk as Account Manager.

Lisa said: “Liberty PR has enjoyed a fantastic start and we are thrilled to be in a position to expand already. We’re in our infancy but we feel we’ve taken a huge step forward in our growth.

“Laura and Tom are former colleagues of ours. They have settled in seamlessly and enabled us to bring structure to the team. Our bigger, brighter office feels like a fitting environment for a vibrant new agency.”

Lisa, a former regional media editor and news editor, made the move into PR in 2013.

She said: “My experience in journalism has played a key role in shaping the Liberty PR ethos. We are proud of our newsroom culture and our healthy obsession with editorial standards.”

David has spent more than 25 years running full-service marketing agencies.

He said: “I have always been an advocate of PR taking the lead in marketing strategy. Liberty PR works across all aspects of PR, social media and search. Our straight-talking, no-nonsense approach puts clients at ease and is already delivering tangible results.

“Lisa and I previously worked together for four years and we found that our combined experience enabled us to cover all angles. In an ever-changing consumer landscape, it’s vital that we can adapt and respond, bringing the client on the journey with us.”
