Key additions for Remarkable Group communications and marketing agency

Daily Echo: Olivia Hill. Olivia Hill.

A COMMUNICATIONS and marketing agency that has offices in Hampshire has made three key appointments as part of its bid to be a major player in the UK social media and public relations industry.

Remarkable Group, based in Winchester, has appointed a new executive director, a social media specialist and an associate director.

Julius Duncan has been appointed as executive director, and he will head up the Remarkable public relations team. He brings with him 18 years of experience in journalism, PR and digital marketing and has worked with clients like Virgin Mobile, Aviva, Thames Water, BT, News Corporation and the BBC.

Complementing Julius’ arrival is the appointment of social media specialist Simon Vincent, who will focus on content strategies and community management.

Previously Simon worked as a head of digital at his former agency and head of media and communications at Hampshire Cricket.

And joining them will be associate director Olivia Hill, who brings with her ten years’ experience in PR and social media.

Remarkable Group chief executive Stephen Pomeroy said: “This is an exciting opportunity for Remarkable. Julius, Simon and Olivia bring heavyweight PR experience and social media expertise to the agency, and will help to deliver our strategy to be an agency at the forefront of PR and social media in the UK.

The appointments bring the agency to a 64-strong workforce at its Hampshire and London offices.

... I mean, just because a PR firm sends you a press release, you don't HAVE to publish it. You might reflect on whether local residents would be the least bit interested in some people getting new jobs.

Echo, you might think "We don't usually publish a story every time someone gets a new job in the Southampton region. That would be absurd. Why on earth would we need to suck up to a PR firm and publish their staff movements? It's just silly. We'll tell them to get stuffed."

I accidentally attended a Southampton gathering once that turned out to be full of 'Social Media Marketing Experts'.

It was a truly dreadful experience, surrounded by people that fool the gullible into paying them thousands for knowing what a hashtag is. Utterly horrifying.

Given that this is about a *PR* firm, one can't help but wonder if there's been any 'incentivisation' to run this story.

On the face of it, I'd admit that might be overly cynical and suspicious - but, well......
