BECG hires new Director to head up Birmingham office

We have appointed Verity Barr as a Director to lead our Birmingham office in a move to strengthen our presence across the Midlands.

Verity joins BECG from Camargue and brings with her over 20 years of experience in built environment communications. She has worked across the energy and housebuilding sectors, having delivered award-winning media relations campaigns, planning communications, placemaking and brand development for a range of clients.

BECG’s Head of North and Midlands, Kevin Whitmore commented:

Verity’s wealth of experience across planning and corporate communications will be a real asset to BECG as we look to grow our presence and client base across the Midlands. Her understanding of the planning process coupled with her broader corporate communications knowledge will stand current and future clients in good stead to achieve their objectives.

Verity will lead our work in the Midlands for international supermarket chain, Aldi and one of the UK’s largest property developers, St Modwen. She will lead the team alongside another recent new hire, Adam Farrell, who joined us as an Account Director in March, bolstering the team’s political connections across the region.

Commenting on her appointment, Verity said:

As a market leader in communications across the built environment with an unparalleled digital offer in Built to Engage, it is an extremely exciting time to join BECG. I am looking forward to driving growth across the Midlands and getting to work with an exceptional team and some of the UK’s largest companies in doing so.

As well as hiring Verity to spearhead our work in the Midlands, BECG has promoted Matthew Crisp to Director in its Manchester team. Matthew has been with BECG for three years, having previously worked at Transport for the North and will continue to work closely with Kevin Whitmore to continue to grow our Northern client base.
