The good news continues this month as we welcome not one, but two, positive account developments with our client Barratt Homes.

The good news continues this month as we welcome not one, but two, positive account developments with our client Barratt Homes. That’s right, our PR property portfolio has expanded once again with the addition of the five star housebuilder’s North East division to our mix and our relationship with the company’s Yorkshire divisions being extended for an additional 12 months.

Over the past year we have rolled out a host of engaging communications, with our ability to create a smile and raise an eyebrow being such that the North East division wanted a slice of the Manifest action too.

Nev Ridley, Managing Director at Manifest, commented: “Pitching for and winning the North East PR retainer has been an excellent opportunity for us to further strengthen our comms for Barratt across the North of England. Having already extended our contract with the Yorkshire divisions for an additional 12 months, our strategic approach has already yielded excellent results to date. We are confident the achievements of the two Yorkshire divisions will also be mirrored in the North East as we embark on this new opportunity.”

Here’s what Fenton Hewitt, Sales Director at Barratt Developments North East, had to say: “Having worked with Manifest on an advisory basis over the past 12 months, we are delighted to have the opportunity to work with the team in a more in-depth capacity. The Build, Buy and Belong strategy enables us to showcase the hard work of our teams from across the company, be it community engagement or business developments such as apprenticeship investments, so we are confident that the approach will become valuable to our wider operation.”
