A COUNTY communications firm has expanded its team with the hiring of three new members of staff, calling them "Charlie's Angels".

DRPG, a creative communications company based in Hartlebury, has appointed Beth Regan, Leanne Freer and Grace Wood as digital project managers.

Beth and Leanne joined the firm's growing digital team having climbed the career ladder together at Spark 44, a creative agency serving brands such as Jaguar Land Rover and Tetley.

During their time there they moved from content authors to digital project managers, leading teams to deliver websites and apps for clients and starting careers in project management that brought them through the doors of DRPG.

Leanne said: “I wanted the chance to develop my skills and learn across diverse projects and clients.

"I also wanted to get more involved in the digital side and was keen to work on an AR project which I’ve been able to do since starting."

Beth added: "I love being busy and challenged and was looking for a big fast-paced agency with a variety of clients, so I came to see DRPG with Leanne and loved it."

Grace was a project manager at a video market research company called Voxpopme, forming part of the team responsible for the European offices.

She said: "Although my background is in recruitment and I actually trained as a teacher, I found my strengths lay in project management and I wanted to explore this as a career."

The three will now act as the 'middlemen' between clients and the development team and are responsible for delivering projects from start to finish including planning, timings and briefs.

Gemma Oldfield, head of digital project management, said: "It is great to have brought on our very own digital Charlie’s Angels, three talented, energetic project managers to boost our digital team.

"Between them they bring a great variety of skills and experience to the company and it is fantastic to see our team growing at such a rate.

"Beth, Grace and Leanne are great assets to the team and have already ingrained themselves seamlessly into the company work and culture."
