A GROWING IT services provider has appointed Paver Smith to manage its PR requirements.
adept4, which is based at Sci-Tech Daresbury, near Liverpool, brought the agency on board to provide PR support as it undergoes rapid growth.
The company expects to see staff numbers grow from 19 at the start of this year to more than 50 by January 2013, turning over some £4m annually.
adept4, which was founded in 2007, is a full-service IT solutions company working for clients in all sectors on a global basis. In addition to its headquarters at Daresbury, it has offices in London, Leeds and Bracknell.
The appointment of Paver Smith follows the recruitment of the business’s first full-time marketing lead, Alex Ashton, who previously worked for iNTERTAIN Ltd.
Peter Birkett, CEO of adept4, said: “Our recent growth means we now require a professional and strategic approach to marketing, including PR. The appointment of Paver Smith is a natural next step following the recruitment of Alex and we’re delighted to have them on board.”
