You may have read in Prolific North this week about the launch of the Top 50 PR agency rankings for 2016. Equally, you may not have done, so if you are hearing this news for the first time and want to know more then read on…

This will be the 4th year that Mustard has partnered with Prolific North to deliver the definitive ranking of the top 50 PR companies in the North of England.

The previous rankings have seen the likes of Weber Shandwick, Tangerine and Citypress at the top-end of the table. But the list is by no means dominated by the larger Manchester agencies. Last year alone we had businesses from Leeds, Liverpool, Preston, York, Sheffield, and many more places besides represented in the list.

As ever, participation in this initiative is not optional. Mustard works with various data providers to capture key published financials (including balance sheet value and turnover). Jo Iaconianni from Mustard will be in touch with our contacts at several agencies across the region to take a record of your latest figures. Of course this information is treated with strictest confidence. Being a quality-accredited market research business we know a thing or two about data protection and privacy!

Get in touch now to guarantee your place in the rankings.

So you don’t miss out, please do not wait for Jo to make contact. We encourage you to send your data – including balance sheet value, turnover, profit and headcount – to Jo at the earliest opportunity to guarantee your position in the published table. The deadline this year for data to be submitted is Friday 3rd June, with the ranking scheduled for publication in early July.

Jo can be reached by telephone on 0161 235 5270, or on email –

Please note, agencies that have appared in the Top 50 Integrated agency rankings are exempt from appearing in the PR rankings.
