Boutique lifestyle agency SLAM PR has launched nine offices around the world.
Sparked from the demand of some of their largest global clients such as Zippo and Russian Standard Vodka, SLAM have opened offices across Europe, Asia Pacific and the US, including France, Germany, Italy, Spain, China, Japan, Australia, Korea and the US. The new global network will have more than doubled SLAM PR’s headcount by the end of the year, from a 20 strong office in London to a rapidly growing 50 employees worldwide.
Molly Hooper-Aldridge, global MD of SLAM PR says, ‘It is a very exciting time for SLAM PR and I’m lucky to have a strong team in London and a secure and diverse skill set of individuals around the world. The biggest challenge for me is to make sure that synergy, best practice and quality control remains at the same level as it is in London to ensure that SLAM PR the first ever truly global lifestyle boutique. We all have that entrepreneurial passion that you have in a boutique agency, but we now have it in ten markets worldwide.’
SLAM’s achievements in the UK have not gone unrecognised as they recently won a Cannes Lion Award at the 2010 International Advertising Festival and are finalists for two awards at next week’s PR Week Awards including Specialist Agency of the Year 2010.
