Beattie, the communications agency, is to merge with SERIOUS, the Belfast-based PR company.
Laurna Woods, the CEO of Beattie and David McCavery, the founder of SERIOUS have predicted the new company, which will be called Beattie Ireland, will create up to 20 jobs.
The agency will provide integrated communications services to the whole of Ireland with the opening of an office in Dublin to complement the existing SERIOUS office in Belfast which was established in 2007.
Ms Woods said: “This is our second joint venture. Our first was setting up Beattie Tartan in Canada where, in only two years, we have gone from one office in Victoria to six including Calgary and Toronto. We have similarly ambitious plans for Beattie Ireland.”
