Judge & Howard becomes Intelligent Conversation

After six successful years, Judge & Howard today begins a new life as Intelligent Conversation.

The rebrand comes a year after managing director Libby Howard bought out co-founder Suzanne Judge and follows the continuing growth of both our client list and our team.

We have grown year on year since the business started in 2009 – breaking the £1million income barrier last year – and in 2015 were recognised by PR Week as a top 150 agency in the UK and top 25 outside London.

New client wins

Recent new client wins include: Home Instead, the UK’s leading provider of high quality home care; architectural façade manufacturer Aliva UK; caring technology provider Assistage and Lancashire-based accountancy firm Pierce.

We have also won exciting new briefs to work with a leading provider to the global oil & gas industry and a major new manufacturing initiative in the North West.

Team changes

Now with a 10-strong team, we are delighted to officially welcome our newest recruits Kam Arkinstall – who joins as Senior Consultant this week – and content executive Sarah Chambers, who celebrates her first anniversary with us.

We are also pleased to announce a series of internal moves that will strengthen our management team. Senior consultants Kate Jones and Simon Donohue become head of health and social care and head of content respectively. Senior consultant Fritzi Wemheuer becomes the agency’s third director, alongside Claire Evans and Diana MacCarthy.

Senior consultant Ruth Devlin takes on the new role of healthcare specialist – recognising 35 years’ experience in journalism and communications in the sector.

These new appointments will ensure the business is well positioned to meet its future ambitions and the ever-changing needs of clients.

We would like to thank integrated creative agency Loaf for our shiny new website and for the wider re-branding work.
