Specialist marketing recruitment agency Denholm Associates has strengthened its board as the company prepares for its next phase of growth into the north of England. The firm, which employs 25 people in Edinburgh and Glasgow, has brought in Richard Ash from Nigel Wright Group to oversee the push into the “northern powerhouse” cities of Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool. The move follows a number of recent contract wins in the region by the agency set up in 2002 by chief executive Nicki Denholm, pictured with Douglas Cross and Ash.
“If we have a unique selling point it is around the ability to attract scarce, high-value global marketing talent for our clients in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee and Perth,” she said. “It can be a difficult process and client feedback indicates that regional hubs in the north of England face exactly the same kind of challenges – that presents a big market opportunity for us.”
