Honest Communications celebrates continued success with multiple client wins and team expansion

Honest Communications is celebrating continued success with a number of clients joining the company’s growing portfolio. The PR and social media agency already works with a number of leading industry and household names and these new clients further bolster the company’s trusted reputation.  

The Derby-based agency was founded less than three years ago by Holly Daulby and has achieved substantial growth during this short time. Honest specialises in providing PR, content creation and social media services for consumer lifestyle and gardening brands, helping them to elevate their profiles within the sector and widen their customer reach.

The first new name added to Honest’s portfolio is BASF. The global company will benefit from both PR and social media services to support and raise the profile of its range of biological range of slug and pest control products.

Honest has also recently been appointed by Haws, the world’s oldest watering can manufacturer with a reputation for producing high quality, sustainable watering cans for over 130 years. The first project that Honest undertook for Haws was to manage the brand’s return to the prestigious RHS Chelsea Flower Show after a 25-year hiatus, looking after both social media and PR campaigns.

The iconic Baby Bio® and Phostrogen® brands have also appointed Honest to provide a blend of PR and social media services. The two brands have a combined 130-year history of providing plant feed and houseplant care to consumers, and have made the appointment as part of a wider marketing strategy to catapult both brands into a new chapter.

Wilkinson Sword, WOLF-Garten and Town & Country, part of the EP Barrus portfolio, are also among the new clients for Honest. The team will be working with them to help maintain the presence of all three brands in the gardening sector, whilst expanding the range of tools, gloves and footwear into other sectors including home and lifestyle.

The succession of clients has also allowed for a team expansion and a number of promotions within Honest. The agency has welcomed two new account managers - Beth French, who has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the home and interiors sector, and Emma Swann, who recently worked at the Woodland Trust. Alongside these new appointments, both Leanne D’Arcy and Fay Clarkson has received promotions to make them account executive and account director respectively.

Managing director, Holly Daulby commented:

“We are over the moon to have so many high-profile brands contact us about working together and can’t wait to get our plans underway and see the results come flooding in. These appointments have accelerated the businesses’ growth beyond all projections for the year. In turn, this has allowed me to expand the team to create new positions while awarding promotions as well. We’re all incredibly excited for the future at Honest, particularly with our third birthday just around the corner!”

Finally, the agency has also moved location to the RTC Business Centre, located on the outskirts of Derby City Centre, offering a larger working space to accommodate the growing team.
