Camargue announces investment in new office for Wales.

Camargue is opening a new office in Cardiff in response to exciting business opportunities across Wales.

Camargue is one of the UK’s largest independent public relations agencies, established in 1987 and now employing 100 people. The firm specialises in business-to-business communications, public affairs, and community engagement with a track record of working with clients and brands across energy, construction, architecture, utilities, housing, property and many other sectors.

Camargue delivers strategic campaigns to support clients with briefs ranging from marketplace profile and positioning to communicating the case for new infrastructure and helping to secure planning permissions. The firm has a comprehensive design, digital and web capability in house.

The company chose Brunel House in the heart of the city for the new office with a team now moved in and servicing clients and projects across Wales.

The new Cardiff presence adds to Camargue’s four existing offices in London, Cheltenham, Birmingham and York giving it enhanced reach across the UK. Initially four people will be based at Brunel House, led by director Greg Phillimore, with plans to grow.

Camargue managing director, Ben Copithorne said:

“We’ve been working in Wales for many years and have a number of established relationships with clients we’re helping on briefs from energy to the law. To take that to the next level, we saw the benefit of committing to Cardiff with a new office and putting our talented colleagues even closer to clients, communities, and the people they’re advising.

“Our ambition is to play a part in helping clients to contribute to the exciting opportunities in Wales, especially across the green economy, from net zero and renewables to regeneration and decarbonisation.”

Camargue has worked in all regions of Wales across a wide range of energy, regeneration, nuclear and renewables projects with clients including Welsh Government, National Grid, RWE, Green GEN Cymru, SP Energy Networks, and many others.

In 2022, Camargue became employee-owned, meaning all employees are partners with a voice and stake in the agency.

Greg Phillimore, director, added:

“Being in Cardiff is exciting and means we can help clients with even better, more connected advice. Whether that’s plugging into the Senedd, engaging with business, linking into local communities, or shaping conversations to better help clients succeed.

“We’re looking forward to talking with existing and new clients about what they’re looking to achieve in Wales and how we can help them to tell their stories.”
