Following an extensive review and multi-agency pitch, Spin Master UK is delighted to announce an exciting new agreement with Stripe Communications London beginning 1 July 2020.
Phil Hooper, Spin Master’s commercial director of marketing, said: “We are excited to welcome Stripe to work on Spin Master’s portfolio of toys in the UK market. With their expertise, experience and creativity, we are looking forward to developing industry-leading PR campaigns to support the innovative brands for which Spin Master is renowned.”
Stripe is an award-winning PR agency with a wealth of clients including: Merlin Entertainments, Rank Interactive, Legoland Windsor Resort, Hammerson, TGI Fridays, Edrington, The Royal Bank of Scotland, Battersea Power Station, Yotel and ScottishPower. Having won over 60 awards recognising their work, Stripe has been awarded a coveted Cannes Lion for creativity and twice won the CIPR Excellence UK Outstanding Consultancy.
Chris Stevenson, Stripe London MD, adds: “We're delighted to have been appointed as retained PR agency by Spin Master. We work with a brilliant client roster that has enabled us to develop strong expertise in engaging parents and families and we will put this to excellent use working with Spin Master.
“Right from the outset it was clear that we shared a culture of creativity, partnership, and passion with Spin Master. Their product innovation and appetite to disrupt the traditional toy market, coupled with our own ambition to wow consumers with award-winning creativity will allow us to form a strong partnership and achieve great things together.”
Stripe Communications London takes over from Fosbury PR, who has been supporting Spin Master’s PR activities since 2015. Phil Hooper said: “We’ve had six fantastic years working with Fosbury PR and have achieved some amazing results together, and I would like to thank Caroline Fosbury on behalf of Spin Master for all the hard work and support she has provided over the years.”
Stripe will work alongside Jo Thompson, Spin Master’s PR manager, and the marketing team.
