South Manchester-based PR consultancy PR Agency One is on track for a record 10th birthday year, following a continued period of growth.

The PR, digital and reputation consultancy is celebrating 10 years in business, whilst reporting strong increases in turnover and profit.

In the last financial year (2020/21), turnover has increased by 26% taking it to £1.8 million.

Profitability (EBITDA) has also increased by 20% due to the continued expansion of the business.

Founded in 2011 by James Crawford, the B2B and consumer agency currently employs 25 members of staff and works with clients such as Decathlon, Allied London, Gazprom Energy, One4all Gift Cards, Mthree and Total Fitness.

Over the past decade, PR Agency One has won over 50 industry awards, including agency of the year more than eight times. It has also been recognised for its proprietary measurement technology, which sets new standards in reporting reputation, brand and commercial performance, tracking and attribution.

The development of the team and the business will continue to be a major part of future plans, ensuring it is based on PR Agency One’s sustainable culture and core set of values.

The firm will continue to scale by adding additional business units and continuing to grow its One Network international offering. With offices in 21 countries, One Network delivers global campaigns for clients to maximise their reach and results.

The business aims to reach £3m turnover within the next seven years.

James Crawford, managing director at PR Agency One, said: “The entire team at PR Agency One has worked incredibly hard to get us to the position we are now in, and we look forward to celebrating these successes at our tenth birthday party. We have grown organically over the past decade, and, despite the pandemic, we’ve demonstrated that our expertise and offering is second to none.

“We are proud to have grown sustainably without compromising our values in any way and will continue to put our people and clients at the heart of everything we do. I’d like to thank our talented team and brilliant clients for helping us to reach this milestone.”
