“We looked at moving into the US,” explained Beattie chairman Gordon Beattie. “However, we see bigger opportunities in Canada right now with Ottawa and Winnipeg top of our list.”
Beattie Tartan will bring its integrated communications services of PR, digital, social and creative to both cities and Deirdre Campbell, managing director in Canada, is looking forward to winning clients and creating jobs.
She said: “We see big opportunities for our joined up communications offering in both cities as I’m sure clients will love our integrated approach to communications and marketing.
“Our expansion will allow us to create four new jobs and we will continue to grow further across the country over the next couple of years as well as moving into the US further down the line.”
Gordon Beattie added: “We have the biggest office footprint in the UK of any marketing and communications agency and we aim to replicate that in Canada.
“It’s the second largest country in the world and we will secure a distinct commercial advantage over our rivals by being on the doorstep of more and more potential clients.  Our eventual aim is to be local to more than 90% of Canadian companies.”
Headquartered in London, Beattie has offices in Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester and Glasgow. The opening of Ottawa and Winnipeg will bring the total to 18 hubs worldwide.
Founded more than three decades ago, Beattie has specialist teams serving the health, retail, tech, travel and education sectors.
