Enterprise M3 briefs Citigate Dewe Rogerson
The Local Enterprise Partnership has selected the agency to handle its corporate PR brief.
Enterprise M3 promotes a business-focussed Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) that has brought Citigate Dewe Rogerson in to highlight its work in the Surrey and Hampshire region. The appointment follows the agency completing a successful project earlier in the year which included the announcement that the LEP secured £118 million in funding from the Government’s Local Growth Fund.
The new brief will see Citigate encouraging businesses in the Enterprise M3 Sci:Tech corridor in Surrey and Hampshire to bid for a share of £3 million in funding from its Growing Enterprise Fund. In addition, the agency will hope to highlight the importance that the LEP is playing as an economic stimulus in the Enterprise M3 area, showcasing its commitment to developing the area’s infrastructure for businesses and residents.
Citigate Executive Director Ewan Robertson will lead the account, overseeing a team of four.
Kathy Slack, Executive Director, Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership, said: "We are delighted to be working with Citigate on a second project this year as we highlight the funding we have secured for the region. The agency will play an integral part in developing our relationship with businesses and residents across Surrey and Hampshire."
"This appointment further underlines the agency’s credentials for the provision of communications support for public sector organisations, as we fully understand the nuances of engaging with multiple stakeholders across both the public and private sector”, said Ewan. “We look forward to supporting Enterprise M3 in its efforts to secure significant funding for the region and ultimately drive economic development across Hampshire and Surrey."
