As it starts its 10th year in business, Intelligent Conversation has announced that Kate Jones and Fritzi Wemheuer will take on the day-to-day running of the agency as Managing Director and Deputy Managing Director. Agency founder Libby Howard will oversee the company as CEO.
The changes herald a new era for the multi award-winning PR & communications agency, which was established in 2009 and is now a £1.3m turnover business with a heavyweight UK and global client list.
Clients include Synectics plc, EMIS Group plc, Brother International Europe and Belgium-headquartered 3D printing pioneer Materialise. Recent client wins include Eddie Stobart Logistics, Denmark-based DISA – part of the Norican Group and Swiss-headquartered global IT solutions provider Ascom.
The new appointments were made from within the 14-strong Manchester-based team. Kate Jones has worked with the business since its inception and Fritzi Wemheuer joined from international b2b agency Gyro in 2012.
Kate Jones, Intelligent Conversation’s new managing director, said: “The experience and expertise of our team is IC’s core strength and continues to attract new clients from across the UK and internationally. It is fantastic to be part of the success to date and now to drive the future growth of the business.”
Libby Howard said: “Our ethos has always been to develop and reward our team, so it is particularly pleasing to promote two such talented people who have grown with the business.
“I look forward to working closely with Kate, Fritzi and the whole team as we take the agency to new levels of success. We have some interesting development plans that this new structure will help us to deliver.”
