Suttie’s “Say No to Plastic” campaign gained worldwide recognition, changed the behaviour of major retailers and was instrumental in the introduction of the plastic bag charge north of the Border.
This year, she spearheaded a global campaign highlighting the damaging effects of pollution caused by single use plastic contact lenses.
Suttie is one of seven new appointments unveiled at the Glasgow-based communications and PR consultancy as it invests in expansion.
Founder and chief executive Mark Hollinshead said: “The last seven months have been challenging and scary to say the least. At the start of the pandemic it felt like we were trying to sprint in quicksand.
“Like all businesses, during the last few months, we’ve had to adapt our offering and support clients as they strived to do the same.
“The way ahead for us is to invest in talent. With our recent appointments we’re doing just that. We’re also launching an in-house photographic, videography and design unit as content creation is at the heart of what we do.”
He said the agency had secured a number of new client wins.
Among the other appointments, Katie Palmer has joined Hollicom as senior account manager from STV, where she worked as a features writer and social media producer.
Other recent signings include Jordan Agnew, a former communications advisor at the Westminster parliament, who supports business clients on PR strategy, public affairs and stakeholder engagement.
