Chapman Poole expands into Europe and the US

We have recently expanded our all-senior network of PR consultants into Spain, France, Germany and the US, in response to existing and new client demands.

Having taken on several new UK and internationally-based clients, including premium beer subscription service DiscoverBrew; US-based consumer products company Luxco; Amazonian energy tea drink Yusa and pioneering restaurant and bar group New World Trading Company, Chapman Poole has recruited additional consultants in the UK as well as in Madrid, Berlin, Paris and Boston, US.

The agency has recently supported the UK and Germany launch for small batch whiskey distiller, Limestone Branch Distillery; a consumer campaign in Paris for luxury consumer products brand, Dictador and is now supporting the planned international growth for Cumbrian craft brewer, Hawkshead Brewery.

Agatha Chapman-Poole, MD, Chapman Poole says: “We took a risk embarking on a freelance model at a time when there was a stigma surrounding freelancers working in agencies. Agency heads would keep freelance staff hidden from clients for fear of seeming ‘unstable’ or non-committal.

“Our model has now proved more popular than we could have imagined with active consultants in seven countries.”

All Chapman Poole consultants have a minimum of 10 years’ experience, which makes the agency cost-effective and delivers greater value and a higher quality service for clients. This is proving increasingly popular with businesses looking for strategic senior level PR support and impactful results.

Based in Spinningfields, Manchester, Chapman Poole has championed the freelance model since the agency’s conception in 2010.
