A public relations and marketing agency in Tunbridge Wells is marking its 25th anniversary.
Director Philip Jones, who founded the agency with business partner Andrew Metcalf, said: “For obvious reasons, we didn’t get to mark our 25th year as we’d intended, but we are incredibly proud to have got to this milestone.
“When Andrew and I founded Maxim, we knew our understanding of marketing, local government and the media, combined with our in-depth knowledge of Kent and the broader South East, was a valuable proposition. However, if you’d told us then that one day we’d be celebrating our quarter century I’m not sure I’d have believed you.”
Andrew added: "We are very lucky that some exceptionally talented people have come to work for us, and that our clients have been so loyal – in one case still with us after more than 24 years.
“It is during difficult times such as now that people show their true nature, and the fact that we have been able to pull together and continue to support our clients through some important projects in the middle of a pandemic is a tribute to the Maxim team."
Account director Rachel Knight, who organises the KPBAs, said: “In normal times, KPBA would culminate in a celebratory lunch and awards ceremony. This year that event will be a virtual one but it’s still a reason to have a party, and while the focus is on the media we’ll individually be raising a glass to mark Maxim’s 25 years in business.”
