Communications and planning consultancy Remarkable Group has acquired the Salford-based infrastructure and energy PR firm Pendragon, to create Remarkable Pendragon.
Remarkable opened its first Manchester office in April, with six members of staff based in the city led by associate director Carlene Leonard.
The deal will integrate the Pendragon team, led by managing director Alex Doyle, with the Manchester office and the wider Remarkable Group national offering.
The acquisition of Pendragon supports Remarkable's position as a provider of stakeholder consultation services for the property, waste management, utility, infrastructure and energy sectors.
Alongside Manchester, Remarkable opened offices in Bristol and Cardiff this year, to complement existing offices in London and Winchester.
Stephen Pomeroy, chief executive of Remarkable Group, said: "Remarkable Pendragon is a first for the UK stakeholder consultation market: an agency dedicated to helping companies achieve positive planning outcomes and wider stakeholder and government relations for infrastructure and energy projects. I have admired the work of Alex and his team for many years and it's great to be able to welcome them into the Remarkable Group."
