CONSUMER public relations consultancy RNN Comms has moved to new premises on High Street in Ballynahinch to accommodate its growing team and client roster.

Joining Quinn Property Services and Ritchie & McLean Mortgage Solutions, the two-floor office offers further room for growth as the company nears its 10th anniversary in business next year.

In addition to a new location, the agency ( has added two new consultants in Joanna Malone and Aya Fawzy.

Recently named as a finalist at the PRCA DARE Awards for Best Small Agency, RNN is also short-listed for the Purpose Award and Integrated campaign of the year for its client work.

Over the years, the agency has been named frequently as the Best Small Agency in Northern Ireland and has picked up UK-wide awards for its client work. In early 2021, one of its campaigns was named as one of the top integrated campaigns in the UK.

Founded by chartered PR consultant Riki Neill, RNN Comms now employs seven people, working with an extended family of suppliers and associates. The company works in Northern Ireland, Ireland, Belgium and Germany, delivering communications programmes for clients both online and offline.

“We're going for growth and are so thrilled with our new home,” Ms Neill said.

“It's a really collaborative building and we're delighted to share the three floors with our neighbours at Quinn Property Services and Ritchie & McLean.

“Johnny Quinn has completely refitted the building, leaving us with a state-of-the-art white canvas office space to make our own. Our offices are vibrant, creative and positive - all of the company values that we bring to every client campaign.”

Riki adds: “Talent acquisition is essential to our success, and we believe it's important to create a collaborative environment in which our staff feel comfortable and inspired. This is how we'll reach our full potential.”

In 2021, RNN Communications launched fetch Ireland, a micro influencer platform delivering gifting campaigns for brands across the island.

Jolene Kelly, head of services for fetch Ireland adds: “Our new office space has given us the room to expand our services, delivering more fetch drops for brands across Ireland to our micro influencer community.

“Since we launched fetch back in September 2021, we've delivered 15 campaigns, which have collectively created over 500 pieces of content for our clients, which has been viewed by over 450,000 users on social platforms. We're excited to grow this element of RNN and reach further with fetch Ireland.”
