Drpgroup grows team to 150 employees

Midlands-based drpgroup has employed a host of new team members in 2014 taking the total to 150 employees.
The agency hit the milestone with the arrival of Sarah Lyddy and Mark Roddy, which was announced last week.
MD Dale Parmenter envisages more people joining the team before the end of the year. “At our summer conference where we announced our five-year plan, we set the ambitious target of growing our team to 250,” he said. “Hitting 150 is an important milestone on the way to this target.
“We’re not hiring people just to hit a target of course. Our growth across our business divisions needs to be supported by the best talent and this means bringing in the right experienced, passionate individuals to join the team,” Parmenter adds.
The group’s apprenticeship scheme has helped bring on board new talent with four apprentices making the transition to full-time employment in the past year.
The acquisition of Grosvenor Film also saw five new faces join the London office, while the drpdigitalmedia team has doubled in size in the past 18 months.
