Sheffield communications agency Counter Context has strengthened its team with the appointment of former PR agency director, Jane Whitham.
Jane, who set up and ran award-winning Leeds PR agency Cream Consultancy and lives in Penistone, joins the Counter Context team as account director and will head up the company’s fast-growing PR division.
Counter Context provides communications and public affairs services, primarily to clients in the built environment and energy sectors.
The PR team’s growth follows a number of recent client wins, which include major international architecture and design firm BDP and New Era Development, the Chinese-funded business behind the £66 million New Era Square scheme at St Mary’s Gate, Sheffield.
Alexis Krachai, managing director at Counter Context, said: “Over the past 25 years we have built a strong reputation engaging, promoting and consulting on behalf of clients.
“We are trusted by some of the most successful businesses in Europe and when it comes to PR, we are seeing more and more clients turn to us for expert support.
“Our work with clients helps them connect with communities, politicians and decision makers. Counter Context is proud to be involved in the transformation of many UK towns and city centres, as well as with the renewable energy sector which is working towards a world run on green energy. Our work today is helping to ensure future generations have access to clean air and public spaces they can be rightly proud of.”
The agency, which employs 20, has offices in Sheffield, Manchester and London.
