A West Midlands communications agency has celebrated its 5th birthday in style by securing five new contracts.

Cucumber PR, which is run by husband and wife team Russ and Joan Cockburn, has been appointed to handle the public relations for lifting specialist TotalKare, advertising agency M3 and industrial measuring expert Blum-Novotest.

Russ Cockburn, director of Cucumber PR, said: “It’s a pretty good way to celebrate our fifth year in business and puts us on course for our best ever year.

“We are increasingly finding that clients have had enough of the larger agency approach and prefer to deal with a firm that offers a more personal service and direct access to experts that deliver what they say they are going to deliver.

“One of our key selling points is our media contacts that span most of the UK, significant trade press and international broadcast outlets. You no longer have to go to London to get that level of coverage.

“The five new clients have come to us to raise their profile aligned with supporting their business objectives and like our no-nonsense approach to achieving that. We’ve already secured a number of major wins for them that has led to new opportunities.”

Cucumber PR works with a network of trusted associates to deliver integrated marketing campaigns and video production, an increasing requirement for media sources looking to boost engagement from readers and advertisers.
