Redleaf Communications wins consumer and trade brief for London Southend Airport

Redleaf Communications has been chosen by London Southend Airport to lead its consumer and trade PR after a pitch process involving eight agencies.

A senior team will include Directors Guy Smith and Robin Tozer, Account Director Jose Mendez and Account Manager Geet Chawla – all working in collaboration with consultancy Brera PR and 360 PR in Dublin. Charlie Geller, Director for Redleaf’s Capital Markets and Investor Relations division, will continue to lead financial PR for the airport’s owners, Stobart Group, which is one of Redleaf’s existing and longstanding clients.

Targeting both leisure and business travellers, Redleaf will promote the airport as a ‘quick, convenient, affordable and overall better travel’ alternative to other London airports.

Guy Smith, Head of Corporate for Redleaf Communications, said:

“We’re delighted to be working with such a talented marketing team at London Southend Airport, alongside the other retained agencies. It’s a very exciting time for the airport, which has the capacity to ensure maximum comfort and convenience for its guests. There are significant developments taking place over coming months as new routes to Manchester, Glasgow, Dublin, Malta and Sion are launched in the Autumn.”

Redleaf will also work on building relationships with destinations to create future opportunities for the airport and its guests.

Over £150 million has been invested in London Southend Airport by owners Stobart Group since it was acquired in 2008.
