Following a period of sustained growth, Cardiff-based Grasshopper Communications has recently appointed Deb Campbell as project director to lead on the delivery of a number of major projects.
Founded in 2015, Grasshopper is a specialist communications consultancy working in the property, regeneration, infrastructure and environment sectors. The company has seen year-on-year growth and is now working with clients across Wales and the south of England including HLM, Crosslane Student Developments, Standard Life Investments, Taylor Wimpey and Drax Group.
The team is working on a range of projects including Abergelli Power Station, a new gas-fired power station in Swansea (classed as a nationally significant infrastructure project), and the Rhydycar West mixed-use regeneration scheme in Merthyr Tydfil.
Deb has made the move to Grasshopper after 15 years in the communications industry, having previously managed stakeholder and community engagement for a range of high profile major infrastructure and regeneration schemes across the region.
This follows the appointment last year of Anne Marie Mc Can as consultation coordinator, who also has a background in the property and construction sector.
Founding director Clare Jones said: “We are an ambitious, niche communications agency committed to delivering a high-quality service to our clients, and we therefore need to be recruiting the best possible team. Deb has worked on some of the largest, most high-profile infrastructure project in the UK, so brings a combination of knowledge, experience and creativity to our team.”
Deb Campbell, project director at Grasshopper said: “It’s great to be part of a dynamic and progressive agency, which in a short time is already gaining a positive reputation for the service it offers. Having worked in communications for the past 15 years, it’s a great opportunity for me to get involved in new and exciting projects and to help Grasshopper grow further.”
Based in NatWest’s Entrepreneur Accelerator Hub, the Grasshopper team has been supported over the last 12 months by the entrepreneurial programme, which is a free people accelerator for early stage and growing ventures.
