Remarkable rebrands as Built Environment Communications Group
Stephen Pomeroy is chief executive of the property-focused PR and public affairs agency.
PR and public affairs firm Remarkable Group has rebranded as Built Environment Communications Group (becg) in a bid to underline its status as the largest specialist communications agency for the sector.
The new-look outfit will have a 90-strong national team across eight UK offices and “a clear mission to deliver expert counsel and multi-disciplinary communications services for the built environment sectors,” a spokesman said.
The move follows last year's acquisition of property agency HardHat. Remarkable bought up HardHat, set up in 2006 by former Labour councillor Andrew Howard, and merged the property lobbying shop with its public consultation and stakeholder division to create a 30-strong office in the capital. In a statement announcing the acquisition in November 2016, Remarkable Group claimed that it would “create the UK’s largest public consultation and stakeholder communications agency”.
In a statement about the rebrand, chief executive Stephen Pomeroy said this week: "In becg, we have created a UK market leader to advise those who are deliverers of our evolving built environment. As a multidisciplinary agency we will continue to provide expert advice with unrivalled national, regional and local networks to provide our clients with solutions that deliver commercial value, maximise opportunities and reduce risk.
He added: "Too often, crucial built environment projects can be delayed due to a lack of understanding of the benefits they can bring to individuals, communities and the wider economy. At becg we are dedicated to communicating the vision of our clients as they shape a better built environment, and to genuinely engage with government, media and stakeholder communities."
