Churchill appoints Magenta for UK comms programme

Churchill Services Group, the soft multi-service solutions provider, has appointed Magenta Associates to support its next phase of growth.

Churchill provides a complete suite of services, including cleaning, catering, security, compliance, maintenance and specialist services. The UK-based company was recently included in The Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250, which ranks Britain’s private mid-market growth companies. Its sales increased by 11% to £131m in 2017, while turnover has quadrupled in five years.

Magenta’s appointment comes during an exciting period for Churchill, following a spate of high profile contracts, senior hires, the opening of a new London office, award-wins and business acquisitions. The most recent of which is of technical and manned security provider, AOS Security Ltd.

The Magenta team will work closely with Churchill to build brand awareness and raise its media profile in line with its business growth.

Andy Warren, bid director at Churchill, who is managing the day-to-day relationship with Magenta Associates, comments: “We are delighted to begin a new partnership with Magenta Associates to develop an all-encompassing strategic communication process at such an exciting time for our business. Through Magenta’s expertise, we will build excellent relationships with relevant stakeholders to publicise and broadcast the difference we continue to make throughout our industry.”

Xenia Kingsley, senior account manager at Magenta Associates, comments: “We’re very much looking forward to working with such an ambitious business. Churchill is going from strength to strength and we’re excited to tell their story.”

The account will be managed by Xenia Kingsley, with additional support from Cathy Hayward, Thomas Went, Gemma Norris and Mark Parry.
