FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Astro engages Rise Communications to deliver future PR and Marketing
Award winning telecommunications provider Astro is delighted to appoint Rise Communications to guide and deliver on its future PR and Marketing strategy.
Astro, established in 1984, provides business communications solutions and services to companies and organisations, both large and small across the UK. As experts in solving business challenges through the use of technical solutions, Astro is delighted to find a PR and Marketing agency it knows it can trust to look after the PR and Marketing activity that supports their growth ambitions.
Steve Hodges, Managing Director of Astro said: “We are very excited about our new engagement with Rise. To date our PR and Marketing has all been generated in-house, but as we continue to grow we would like to focus on core competency of delivering technical solutions and high-quality managed services to our expanding customer base. The time has now come to have an outside company working alongside us to help maintain our great reputation and promote our services to a wider audience”.
“I am a strong believer in recommendations and in building lasting business relationships with like-minded organisations. Rise came highly recommended from another trusted partner and in Rise we have found a business who understand our values, they ‘get’ our culture and I am confident that they will represent us perfectly. The team at Rise are hardworking, super-professional and great fun and I know we are going to really enjoy working with them long into the future”.
Rise Communications has over 20 year’s experience working within the PR and Marketing industry. Sarah MacDonald and Jo Hage both partners at Rise said: “We are delighted to be working with Astro. This award winning company is both vibrant and at the forefront of the telecommunications industry. It’s a great opportunity for us to work as an extension to their team and look forward to helping them achieve their desired outcomes”.
