19/07/2016 - Lucketts accelerates expansion plans with appointment of PR agency
Leading UK coach hire company, Lucketts Travel, has appointed Lee Peck Media as its PR agency
It comes as the transport firm, based in Fareham, celebrates its 90th anniversary and sets the wheels in motion for further expansion.
Lucketts was founded in 1926 by Harry Luckett and has remained an independent, family-run company ever since. It offers a broad range of leisure, business and educational transport solutions, as well as bespoke private coach hire packages for clients across the UK. It also sells holiday packages and day excursions through its website and booking line. Paul Barringer, group sales and marketing director at Lucketts, said: “We’re immensely proud of our heritage, having served the South for nine decades. It’s a very important year for us as we celebrate the past and prepare for future expansion and PR forms an important part of that. Lee Peck Media’s expertise will be vital in helping us make the most of the opportunities ahead of us and take the Lucketts brand to the next level.” Lee Peck Media will be responsible for devising and implementing Lucketts’ PR strategy and Paul said it was the agency’s creative ideas and proactivity that put it top of the list. “We really wanted an agency that was able to come up with new ideas and innovative ways of promoting ourselves and it was clear from the outset that Lee Peck Media was without doubt the agency to do that,” he added.
