Sheffield’s leading campaigning communications agency and social enterprise, the Adam Bradford Agency, has announced the addition to its board of a new associate director ahead of a key milestone in its history.

Joining founder and MD Adam Bradford on the board is brother Ryan, who steps into the role after previously serving as the Agency’s key project manager. In doing so, he becomes one of the youngest directors of a global marketing agency, aged 25.

In his new position, Ryan will be tasked with supporting in the day-to-day running of the business and shaping its strategic direction as the Agency prepares to celebrate its tenth birthday.

With a full-time head count of five, The Adam Bradford Agency is a campaigning communications agency which supports enterprising people in their ambitions to achieve economic and social success. Its vision is to see business and enterprise recognised as a force for good around the world.

Headquartered in Sheffield, the business also has a permanent base in United Arab Emirates and has delivered projects for Nando’s, The National Trust and Google, across disciplines including talent support, project management and marketing services.

The Agency also created AdamStart, an initiative that works to ensure young entrepreneurs fulfil their potential within an enabling ecosystem.

Adam Bradford managing director Adam Bradford said: “I’m so pleased to be able to appoint Ryan to the role of associate director following 18 months of tireless work for the agency.

“As brothers, we’ve naturally been close our whole lives, but it’s been wonderful to build that relationship in a different way since he came on board with the Agency, and even better to bear witness to the brilliant contributions he’s made during this period.

“As we prepare to celebrate ten years, I can think of no better way to start our next chapter than with the appointment of a new associate director, who will provide invaluable support in terms of plotting the route forward as we seek to realise our ambitions for growth.”

New Adam Bradford Agency associate director Ryan Bradford said: “I am thrilled to accept the role of associate director. Having joined the organisation 18 months ago as project manager, I am proud to have taken some significant strides in implementing managerial efficiency and ensuring all workstreams run effectively and impactfully.

“It has been a whirlwind year and a half, with a great variety of projects and even greater diversity of people, and I am grateful that I now have the opportunity to assist Adam in managing the future of this brand as it celebrates its 10thanniversary.

“There are lots of exciting opportunities ahead and the potential for us to create impact and achieve reach in regions we have not yet entered. The Agency has delivered impressive work throughout its history, benefiting people and brands both socially and professionally.”
