A Midlands PR agency is building for future success after achieving a successful year of growth in 2017.

Star Public Relations has begun its second year of trading by recruiting a new member of staff and landing another account. Katie Love, from Cannock, joins the agency, which operates out of Telford and Wolverhampton, with 12 years of PR experience working for a mix of local, regional and national clients.
As part of her varied role as PR consultant, Katie will manage client work, research and write press releases, features and other content, liaise with key media, as well as oversee social media accounts and help organise and manage events.
Katie’s appointment follows a successful first year during which the agency grew from having no clients or staff, to a team of three that supports half a dozen businesses and organisations in a variety of sectors, including housing, education and training, and retail.
The agency’s newest client is Glowstone Ltd, which uses the latest in smart and connected technology to optimise everyday products. Its flagship product is the Glowstone wirelessly heated smart mug. Star PR will support the company with new product launches.
Agency director Sundeep Sehijpal says, “It was 12 months ago that I walked into the empty Star PR office with no clients, no staff and no business plan. While there have been ups and downs, successes and disappointments, pressure and stress, it's been fun and I’ve enjoyed it. Today, we have staff, clients, business plan, objectives and targets and I am looking forward to the next 12 months, which has begun with Katie join the team.
“Katie’s experience and background will make her a great addition to the business. She’s the type of person who is ready to get stuck in and help us deliver for our growing portfolio of clients, as well as support the agency as we target new business opportunities.”
Love adds, “I’m really excited to be joining Star PR. Even though it’s only been going for a year it’s already made a big impact with its clients. I think 2018 is going to be an exciting year and I’m really look forward to being part of the agency’s ongoing success.”
Star PR offers a wide range of services, including media relations, social media, event organisation and management, launches and openings, as well as content marketing, copywriting, public consultation, internal communications and stakeholder engagement. The agency is part of the Midland News Association, one of the UK’s largest independent regional media organisations and publisher of the Express & Star and Shropshire Star newspapers.
