PR agency, Faith PR, is returning to its hometown of Brighouse as it moves into new premises in a new office development in the town.

The communications agency has opened its doors at Thornhill Beck Lane, Brighouse, as part of its expansion and is aiming to become the area’s leading PR and communications agency.

Founded by practiced PR consultant Stefanie Hopkins in 2007, Faith PR has recently secured several account wins and has outgrown its current Birstall office where it has been based for 17 months.

Now, as it enters its eighth year, it is returning to Brighouse where Stefanie and her business partner and husband, Carl Hopkins also live.

Stefanie said: “We felt the time was right to move back to Brighouse and invest in the town. Throughout the recession Brighouse has bucked the national trend and continued to innovate and attract new business. There are some exciting developments planned for the area such as ROKT’s high wire plans for the town’s grain silos. Plus, with the improved links to London, the area is becoming more and more desirable for people to live and work in.”

Faith PR will be based at Thornhill Brigg Mills which have been recently renovated by local development company Henderson Property, who were also behind The Boathouse restoration in the town.

The new Brighouse base will house Faith PR’s team of eight which has recently expanded with the appointment of account manager Ellie MacDonald who joined from the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce.

Faith PR offers a range of PR, communications and marketing services and boasts more than 20 active clients.

Earlier this year, it was nominated as ‘Business of the Year’ in the 2014 Network She Foundation International Women’s Day Awards. Faith was also shortlisted in this year’s CIPR Pride Awards for its work for artisan ice cream producer Yummy Yorkshire.

Founder and director, Stefanie, has also been named as one of Yorkshire Business Insider’s 42 under 42 this year with members of the elite club being described as rising stars of the future.
