Public affairs consultancy Remarkable Group has recruited Kevin Whitmore from Lexington Communications as North region director.
Whitmore will oversee the company’s work across the North of England and sit on the operational board of directors. He brings with him nearly a decade’s experience in public affairs, having also previously worked for PPS. He has advised clients on reputation management across the housebuilding, retail, commercial property and energy sectors.
Whitmore said: “This will be an exciting year for Remarkable Group following the agreement to acquire HardHat and the expansion of our northern team. Our fresh approach and ability to use new technologies to unlock local support for our clients enables us to de-risk the planning process and add real value to development projects, large and small.”
Remarkable acquired property communications firm HardHat in November 2016 for an undisclosed fee. The group’s Northern team services clients including Peel, Aldi, McCarthy & Stone and Transport for the North.
