Cathy Hayward, Magenta’s MD, said: “We work with companies in the FM workplace and business support services sector who are located across the UK, so it seemed a good strategic move for us to add a northern office base to increase the scope of our client support. Jackie has already represented us at the BIFM North Region Ball and made potential new contacts in Manchester.”

Jackie’s B2B FM communications expertise has been gained over seven years, working with international total facilities management provider OCS as their PR and communications manager. Jackie has also held senior B2C PR roles, including public relations manager Girlguiding UK, and has led major national campaigns working with the national, regional, and local media. She also claims to drink “proper northern tea” (none of that wishy-washy Earl Grey stuff they drink down south).

With its history based on its port and canal, Lancaster is an ancient settlement dominated by Lancaster Castle. It is also home to the campus-based Lancaster University.

The new Magenta office address is:
The Gatehouse, White Cross, Lancaster LA1 4XQ
