Leeds and London-based integrated creative agency Turn Key has made two senior hires across its PR and Social Media and Digital departments as it continues its growth trajectory.
Emma Streets joins Turn Key as PR and social media director from global PR and public affairs consultancy BLUE Communications and digital account director Tom McCambridge comes to Turn Key from Manchester-based digital agency, Fabric.
Both appointments follow the launch of Turn Key’s London office, which opened earlier this year and is headed up by ex-Communisis PLC managing director of creative services, Phil Dean.
Turn Key has made an additional 14 appointments across every department in both its Leeds and London offices over the last quarter, taking its total staff to 48.
Turn Key’s growth can be attributed to the renewed demand for integrated agencies.
Turn Key London managing director Phil Dean said:
“The landscape for agency offering is rapidly changing to meet clients’ needs for a consolidated experience – integrated is the new specialism.
“For any brand, ensuring consistency across key messages and tone of voice is essential and an integrated agency has the means to deliver exactly that.
“Creatives now need to understand how a brand will work across all channels and we’re committed to ensuring that design, digital PR and marketing services work together.”
Current Turn Key clients include Great Lengths, Soap & Glory, and DePuy Synthes – part of the Johnson & Johnson group. Turn Key has increased gross profit by 30 per cent and its gross profit margin to 86 per cent year-on-year.
A gross profit increase of 45 per cent is predicted for the agency over the next year.
Nik Entwistle, founder of Turn Key, said:
“Emma and Tom’s appointments, combined with the additional 14 talented staff that we’ve welcomed to the Turn Key family over the past few months, will enable us to continue to fulfill our ambitious growth plans and deliver a truly integrated offering with world-class creative at its heart.”
The agencyplans to invest more than half a million pounds into developing the existing team further over the next 12 months in Leeds and London.
