Business support helping local economy

Investment by Warwick District Council is proving a success in helping to stimulate the local economy and create jobs as shown by public relations agency Red Marlin.

Boosted by the support and advice it received as a business start-up during its two years at the council run Althorpe Enterprise Hub in Leamington Spa, means the rapidly expanding agency is now moving to larger premises in the town centre.

Danny Rughoobeer, managing director, Red Marlin, said: “We’ve enjoyed two very successful years at Althorpe Enterprise Hub and I’ve no doubt that the assistance we received has been a great benefit.

“However, it’s now time to open the next chapter for Red Marlin which means moving to larger offices as we look to offer our communications and public relations expertise to even more businesses.”

Like other companies at Althorpe Enterprise Hub, which opened in 2009 to assist new firms in the high-technology and creative sectors, Red Marlin has benefited from business advice and ample networking opportunities, while on a practical level has enjoyed flexible leasing and serviced offices.

Gayle Spencer, Business Enterprise Manager, Althorpe Enterprise Hub, said: “Red Marlin is a great example of a start-up business which has benefitted from the expertise and guidance available at Althorpe Enterprise Hub and is now moving on to pastures new. We wish them every success for the future.”

Red Marlin, which specialises in automotive public relations and also represents a number of Warwickshire businesses outside of the motoring sector, has seen its client base expand over the last year which has meant the appointment of two new full-time team members.

Among the services that its clients benefit from are communications and strategy development, press releases, features articles, newsletters, website content and social media enhancement.
