Emily Johnson has joined drp as PR and social media executive, while Samuel Kelly has come on board as lead user experience designer. Meanwhile, Suzie Blundell has been promoted from project manager to account manager.

Johnson will focus on increasing exposure and publicity for drp; and Kelly, who specialises in digital design, will support the agency’s clients by improving user experience. Blundell has been with drp for five years and will be working on the EE account.

The news follows drp's recent hire of Andrew Grierson, who joined the team as project manager earlier this month.

Dale Parmenter, Group CEO, said: "Drp has seen a rapid growth across all areas of the business in the last two years and we plan to sustain this growth during 2016. We are hiring the brightest, most determined individuals, who have the ‘anything is possible’ mindset innate in their work ethic, which drp maintains." 

The agency has a total of 178 staff, with further plans to expand the team throughout 2016.
