Double shortlisting for Sintons’ marketing team
The specialist marketing team at law firm Sintons has been shortlisted for two prestigious awards in recognition of its sector-leading work.
The team has been named as a finalist in the in-house marketing team of the year at the North East Marketing Awards, and marketing manager David Pritchard has secured a further shortlisting as Marketer of the Year.
The team – comprised of David Pritchard, marketing executive Peter Jennings, media specialist Deborah Busby and apprentice Robert Dale – is widely recognised for its ability and innovation in marketing, and many of its initiatives have been firsts for the region’s law sector. Among its many recent achievements is building Sintons’ website into one of the most visited and fastest-growing legal websites in the UK.
David Pritchard – who earlier this year won the practice management accolade at the Northern Law Awards – has also been shortlisted in his own right, for leading the efforts of the department and creating and implementing the firm’s hugely effective digital strategy.
The North East Marketing Awards, which recognise excellence in marketing, digital and PR across the region, have received an unprecedented number of entries from firms from a host of different sectors. The awards are judged by an independent panel of leading marketing figures, and the winners unveiled at the awards dinner on October 18th.
Mark Quigley, managing partner of Sintons, said: “Our marketing team is among the highest calibre teams of its kind in the region. David, Peter and Deborah are each known in their own right for their expertise, and Robert is making huge strides in building his career with us. The team continue to devise and successfully implement new initiatives, which often have not been done before in the North East’s legal sector. Our website in particular has become an immense success, and to become one of the fastest-growing legal sites in the UK is an incredible achievement.
“My congratulations go to them, as well as to David for his individual shortlisting, which is worthy recognition of the transformational effect he has had on the department, particularly with regard to its digital offering.”
