Head quartered in the heart of Derby, BB&J Commercial was established in 2010 as a new commercial venture from parent firm Boxall, Brown & Jones which was founded in 1989. In the last six years BB&J has grown to become a leading name in the commercial property market and was this month announced as the fourth most active office agents in the East Midlands throughout 2015 in the hotly contested EGi annual Deals Competition.
The decision to appoint an external PR agency follows a recent move into new, better configured office space at the firm’s home in Derby’s bustling Cathedral Quarter, which last week won National BID of the Year and is home to several properties within BB&J Commercial’s portfolio.
Mark Richardson, Partner at BB&J Commercial, said: “It’s been an incredibly busy 12 months and the time is now right to bring in a dedicated PR company to help us communicate this activity to the market and create opportunities for new instructions. Securing strategic coverage across a variety of different media platforms, and taking advantage of opportunities to promote our brand is in line with our wider business objectives for this year and the future and we are very much looking forward to working with Toast PR to help us achieve those goals.”
Julia Mitchell, Managing Director of Toast PR, said: “This is a pivotal time for BB&J Commercial following a period of successful business wins and growth and we’re thrilled to be joining the team to help generate greater exposure for the brand as they move into the next stage of their business development strategy.”
Toast PR has extensive experience working with both national and regional clients across B2B and consumer markets and has assembled a dedicated team of professionals with established property PR credentials to undertake this appointment which is effective immediately.
