Brass wins trio of accounts


Leeds-based creative marketing agency Brass, is celebrating £200k of business following a trio of new account wins all hailing from Yorkshire.

In the past few months, the agency has added First Bus York, Dowsing & Reynolds, a high-end homeware brand and Tunstall Healthcare, a leading provider of connected care and health technology solutions to enable independent living, to its growing client base.

Lucy Baird, Head of PR, said: “We’re delighted with the latest spate of account wins at Brass and best of all, they’re all based in Yorkshire, highlighting our unrivalled reputation in the region for creative, integrated PR campaigns.”

First Bus and Brass have had a working relationship that has spanned over 10 years. The most recent brief to land is for York Park & Ride, engaging Brass to launch its highly anticipated fleet of 21 new electric buses in the city following a competitive pitching process. The project will see Brass deliver a highly targeted regional communications plan that aims to drive awareness and excite new and current users of York Park & Ride.

Online design-led interiors brand Dowsing & Reynolds, is opening its first store in Leeds Victoria Quarter this month. Brass will be managing the launch strategy which includes PR, event management and paid media.

Whitely Bridge based Tunstall Healthcare has pioneered the use of technology for over 60 years to support those requiring care and health intervention, to live independently in their chosen home setting. As the newly appointed retained PR agency, Brass will help raise awareness of Tunstall across a diverse audience and help educate on the organisation’s products and services.

Kevin Anderson, Marketing Director at Tunstall Healthcare, said: “The pitch presented by Brass really excited us, they delivered exceptionally against the brief and the team’s expertise really shone through. We’ve been impressed from the word go as the PR team tirelessly deliver results that are transforming our overall marketing approach.”
