Lancashire marketing communications consultancy Freshfield has promoted two members of its PR team as it prepares for further growth.

Laura Cullen has been promoted to the role of PR consultant, while Samantha Booth becomes senior PR executive.

The latest promotions come two months after the firm also made a number of promotions in its digital team. The agency has also recruited three new members of staff in the past 12 months with further recruitment planned.

Simon Turner, managing director at Freshfield, said: “Laura and Samantha have both proven their skill, knowledge and dedication towards delivering brilliant work, and so their promotions are thoroughly deserved.

“As Freshfield continues to grow, it’s essential we ensure we are well equipped to support and respond to our clients’ needs, which means building and developing a strong, talented team of people.”

Laura joined Freshfield in 2013 as a PR executive and has worked on a range of clients in the built environment, professional services and education sectors. Samantha joined the agency in 2014 and has worked with clients in retail and leisure, professional services, public sector and property.
