Further expansion for Cornish marketing company

The mpad teamA Penryn marketing firm is celebrating expansion after a new public relations assistant joined the company.

Katie Enright, who graduated from University College Falmouth in journalism in 2006, has become part of team at mpad. She joins the Waterside House based firm under the Unlocking Cornish Potential (UCP) scheme.

"We're really pleased to welcome Katie to the team," said mpad's managing director, Mark Picken. "There were some fantastic applicants for the position through UCP, but Katie shone out. Over the last 18 months the marketing and public relations side of our business has grown dramatically. We now have 15 clients on monthly retainers. Katie's journalistic skills mean that we will be able to increase our levels of service, as well as attract new business."

Katie, who lives in Camelford, said: "I'm really looking forward to working at mpad. It will be quite a challenge but I'm excited about developing my career working on with some fantastic clients and on some excellent projects."

Neil Roach, project officer for UCP said: "We're pleased to have mpad on board. Mark already mentors one of our clients and Katie will enjoy her time there and hopefully develop into an excellent marketing and public relations consultant."

Talking about the UCP scheme, Mark said: "I think it's a fantastic scheme. For us it has meant that we have been able to grow but will benefit from support from the UCP, as well as the financial side. Our project manager, Neil Roach, has been really helpful. Going through the application process with us and now offering ongoing help for the duration of the project."
