A HEALTH communications firm which has firmly established itself in its managing director’s home town for 20 years is relocating to pursue opportunities in the digital market.
Pegasus, currently based in Liverpool Gardens, Worthing, has outgrown its office space and with a lack of suitable alternatives, it is moving to Brighton at the end of the month.
Relocating also opens new market opportunities, according to managing director Lisa Bradley.
She said: “Whilst Worthing has been a good home for us and helped us get to where we are today, Brighton offers new opportunities that we are keen to uncover, including a stronger digital and social offering.
“We look forward to supporting the business community and hope to integrate ourselves as well as we have in Worthing.”
The company was started by Lisa from an office in Wiston Avenue and has enjoyed consecutive year-on-year growth.
In the last six years, staffing has grown from 20 people to a team of 70.
Tripling its income, the consultancy has become a top four UK healthcare consultancy and was recently ranked 22nd in The Sunday Times 100 Best Places to Work list for 2014.
Lisa said: “It is a shame, as I have lived and worked in Worthing, my home town, for 20 years, but the time is just right to make a move.
“Brighton has a real buzzy vibe, so it will be so nice to be a part of that.
“I started the company after I worked for a regional PR firm and started by myself I had one client and over two or three years and then started to specialise in health.”
As well as its PR work, the firm has been involved in a number of charity events.
These have included a stiletto race along the sea- front and a sponsored winter dip in the sea, raising funds for charities including St Barnabas House, the Kate’s Trust and Chestnut Tree House.
The new office, in the North Laine area, is being prepared and will be ready for the move in April. The majority of staff at the firm already live in Brighton and Hove.
