Eulogy promotes two to its board

Independent PR and comms agency Eulogy today announced the promotions of Susie Dullard and James Steward to director. Both join the Eulogy Operating Board from 1 March 2019.

Susie joined Eulogy as a senior account director in 2016 while James first joined Eulogy as a senior account executive in 2011. In addition to board responsibilities Susie will take up a specific focus on supporting the corporate comms needs of clients whilst James will focus on further building the agency’s technology offer.

Elisabeth Field, Chief Executive, said “As we finish our 23rd year, and fourth year of significant growth, we can see the substantial contribution Susie and James have made to helping shape the Eulogy business into the strategic, media savvy, creative agency it is today.

“Their promotions reflect the exceptional talent they have, their impact on our business today and their vision for our agency of tomorrow. We would not be recording such significant growth without them leading the way and I am chuffed to bits that they are joining our Ops Board.  It’s just a shame it makes the coffee round bigger.”

This year, the agency has recorded its best year ever, and will finish the financial year with a year-on-year fee income growth of 15 per cent. Eulogy’s core offer has changed over the last two years. It has expanded from being a predominantly earned media PR agency, to a business that delivers strategic, creative campaign planning and execution across all channels. Growth areas have included audio (first PR agency to market with a weekly podcast, and now with several branded client podcasts in production); brand definition, strategy and development; global crisis communications management; and reputation management. In addition, the agency’s once-called ‘digital’ capability has grown to be the backbone of the agency and developed into a full-service media, insights & planning capability. With its 62 staff, the agency’s stronghold sectors have expanded with specialist teams now in technology; F&B; financial services; automotive; telecoms and health & wellbeing.

In the last 12 months, Eulogy has won an array of UK and international clients, including, Halo Top Creamery, Headspace, Orbitsound, Unidays, Discovery Kids, Oxbotica and Senseon alongside project growth with retained clients including American Express, Renault, Kantar, Getty Images, Jack Daniel’s, Mizkan and the Civil Aviation Authority.
