KATE GETS HER MARKETING WISH

The Completely Group has appointed Kate Richardson as its new Head of Marketing.

Kate has been working in marketing for almost eight years, mostly on the client side in sectors including aerospace, IT, defence and component distribution.

She reports: “I’ve always wanted to work for a creative agency, and every day come into an environment that is buzzing with ideas.

“I’m rapidly learning the intricacies of the property business and really enjoying the fact that we work with all sectors of the industry.”

 

CHANGING THE MENU AT BANKSIDE

M&G has appointed The Completely Group to re-brand Bankside Mix – a retail and leisure destination on the Southbank behind Tate Modern. 

Matt O’Halloran of The Completely Group commented: “The extension at Tate Modern will bring increased visitor numbers to the area and M&G want to create a brand that capitalises on the opportunity to attract more people to Bankside Mix”.

The Completely Group will be creating a retail brochure and a consumer-facing website following the re-brand. Bankside Mix is located next to the Blue Fin building on Southwark Street.

 

RETAIL FEATURES IN £600M DEVELOPMENT

Developer Bouygues and agent GVA have appointed The Completely Group to create retail marketing collateral to promote Hallsville Quarter, the mixed-use development that will form the heart of the £600m regeneration of Canning Town. 

Yunus Shaikh of The Completely Group commented: “This exciting development, located opposite Canning Town DLR station, will offer retailers the opportunity to get involved in one of the fastest growing markets in the UK with huge potential to benefit from an under-supplied local economy”. 

The retail units are scheduled to be launched into the market in September of this year.

 

A FIRST FOR OUR RESIDENTIAL TEAM

Berkeley First, part of the Berkeley Group has appointed The Completely Group’s residential team to refresh the marketing collateral for their Oakgrove development in Caterham on the Hill in Surrey. 

We’ve been tasked with creating brochures for each house type, development photography, a guide to the local area, a door drop and a national advertising campaign. 

Our residential team is really excited at the prospect of getting their teeth into this project with this new and exciting client. 

 

DOM DOES SOME RECON

The Completely Group’s Dom Millar was among the 34,000+ delegates who descended on Las Vegas for RECon – the International Council of Shopping Centres’ global real estate convention last month. 

Having avoided any incidents reminiscent of The Hangover, he reports: “It is a truly amazing event and a fantastic way to get a perspective on what’s happening in international retailing. 

“The UK was well represented among the 1,000 exhibitors and it gave us a very interesting perspective on our future Completely Retail & Leisure Marketplace events.”

The Completely Group continue to work on the ad campaign (below) for long standing residential client Notting Hill Housing. Originally briefed to provide an overview of the company’s offering across London, the ads are updated weekly and run in both the Evening Standard and Metro.

PIER PRESSURE ON GLEN

On July 17th, The Completely Group’s Glen Smallwood will be attempting the 1.4 mile swimming challenge from Bournemouth Pier to Boscombe Pier.

The half man-half fish explains: “I’ve always enjoyed swimming and swam competitively as a kid. I went to college in Bournemouth and remember people doing the pier swim then. I lost my Dad in January and his passing kick-started my fitness campaign and made me want to attempt some of the events and challenges that have eluded me up to now. I’ll be swimming to raise money for the British Heart Foundation and would be chuffed if people could sponsor me”

If you’d like to sponsor Glen please go to his Just Giving page at: www.justgiving.com
