Huddersfield’s newest PR, communications and marketing firm has won a trio of work since launching less than two months ago.
Based in the Colne Valley, MacComms was set up by leading businesswoman Ellie MacDonald, who left her eight year career since graduating from The University of Huddersfield.
MacComms’ first account saw the successful VIP store launch event of designer childrenswear retailer, IndiaCoco, assisting with the growing business’ move into Trinity Walk, Wakefield.
Ellie at MacComms organised a champagne reception and boasted a variety of guests including media, bloggers, local business people, and representatives of the council in attendance, alongside Wakefield entrepreneur Claire Young, runner up from The Apprentice (2008) who officially opened the store.
Since working with IndiaCoco, Ellie has picked up business closer to home with the successful appointment of local indie-folk band The Man in the Street who she soon booked to play a number of Yorkshire’s leading food festivals and charity gigs; and Huddersfield Chiropractor, Colne Valley Chiropractic where she manages a programme of PR and e-communications.
MacComms specialises in delivering PR and communications for local businesses following Ellie’s previous roles as PR account manager and marketing manager. She is also now managing a number of social media accounts in a bid to connect companies online, as well as offline.
Alex Quinn, lead vocalist and acoustic guitarist from The Man in the Street commented:
“Ellie immediately got on with the job and started producing results. MacComms is a PR agency with the personal touch. Outstanding.”
“I have worked with some great people who have taught me a lot over the years and many who have given me the confidence, drive and ambition to set up my own firm.
“I am keen to support local businesses to help them raise their profile, get noticed and ultimately grow. I think West Yorkshire, particularly Huddersfield, boasts a fantastic business community and I couldn’t have got off to such a strong start had it not been for the good will of key people in our region.”
