PR and communications specialist Cream has relocated from Barnsley to Leeds to drive growth.
Cream, a multi award winning PR and communications agency, is one of the first companies to take a suite at the £3.5m refurbishment of Grade I-listed Leeming House, situated above Leeds Market on Vicar Lane.
The agency had been based in Barnsley since it was founded five years ago by Elizabeth Hudson and Jane Whitham.
The move comes as Leeds is named as one of the UK’s top creative cities in a new report by global real estate advisor CBRE.
“The relocation to Leeds is in line with Cream’s expansion plans,” said director Elizabeth Hudson.
“Leeds is a vibrant city with a strong digital and creative sector and we are confident the move will assist the agency’s growth, particularly in the B2C sector. It has excellent transport links and a young, ambitious talent pool thanks to the city’s universities and colleges.”
Elizabeth added: “The newly refurbished Leeming House was the natural place for Cream to be based. The building is one of the city’s historical treasures. It’s beautiful inside and out and we’re looking forward to welcoming clients and guests.”
Cream’s services include public relations, social media, crisis management, strategic communication planning and communications consultancy.
The business, which employs five, is currently working on projects for clients across a range of sectors including luxury retail, manufacturing, education and IT.
