Business growth specialists, 360 Growth Partners, have appointed a new marketing associate to support its growing list of clients.

Marketing and communications specialist, Samantha Legget, will use her 16 years’ experience to help businesses in the North East scale up by advising them on everything from developing a marketing strategy to delivering a successful PR campaign.

Andrew Silver, director of 360 Growth Partners, said: “Samantha is a well respected practitioner in the region and her skills in marketing, brand development and communications will help our clients to grow their businesses.

“She joins our expanding team of associates which includes experts in finance, business technology, leadership and HR. Our approach means we get under the skin of a business to really understand the individual needs of each client. We then partner them with the right associates to help deliver real, sustainable growth.”

360 Growth Partners’ client list includes Saddle Skedaddle, Horizonworks, and Physiohaus. Partnering with SMEs to provide expert advice, guidance and support throughout their growth journey, 360 Growth Partners has itself grown to a team of six since launching in 2017.

Samantha Legget, marketing associate at 360 Growth Partners, said: “Having worked both in-house and at full service agencies for clients across a range of different sectors, I know how important it is for businesses to have a communications plan in place that supports the organisation’s overall aims and objectives. Without one, businesses lack direction and that limits growth.

“Throughout my career I have loved working with companies big and small and I have many stand out experiences; from pitching to Richard Branson, successfully launching new products with Nuby and even managing a photoshoot for Craghoppers with Bear Grylls as part of a design collaboration.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to work alongside the team at 360 Growth Partners to help businesses scale up and achieve their full potential.”

Samantha joins 360 Growth Partners from business improvement company, Gradvert. She has also held senior marketing positions at Connect Physical Health and Chamilia Europe Ltd.

360 Growth Partners works across a range of sectors including professional services, leisure, healthcare, engineering and education. Its services include strategy planning and implementation; performance management; people and culture development; financial management, and business coaching and mentoring.

Using an innovative business model, it works as a trusted partner, providing long-term support from the planning stage, right through to delivery and beyond. Using the team’s wealth of experience, 360 Growth Partners gets to know the ins and outs of each business, its barriers to growth and then works collaboratively to unlock its full potential.
