Hodge, the independent UK financial services group, has appointed Front Door Communications as its retained PR agency.
Cardiff-based Hodge provides a range of products and services, specialising in niche mortgage lending, commercial lending and retail savings.
PR and digital marketing agency, Front Door Communications, has been appointed to support the business in promoting products including its Retirement Interest Only (RIO) mortgage and other niche lending products.
Laura Reid, chief marketing officer for Hodge said: “We were impressed by the Front Door team’s creativity and ‘can-do’ mindset during the pitch process, as well as their impressive credentials in financial services. Hodge is on an ambitious growth strategy to deliver significant uplift in volumes and we needed a partner who could help us deliver on this.
“After a comprehensive pitch process, it was clear that Front Door Communications were the best people for the job and we’re looking forward to working with the team as we enter 2020.”
Launched in 1965, Hodge has decades of experience in innovating in response to changing customer needs across its entire portfolio. It was first to market with Equity Release, and more recently, first to market with Retirement Interest Only (RIO) Mortgages.
Co-founder and Director at Front Door Communications, Kath Chadwick, said: “We are absolutely over the moon to be working with the team at Hodge. The company is on a really exciting journey and has ambitious plans for growth.
“Despite its longevity as a business, its mindset is that of an innovative start-up. We are really looking forward to getting started and excited about the campaigns planned.”
