HROC celebrates 40th anniversary with charity campaign

HROC, one of the largest independent marketing agencies in the Midlands, is celebrating 40 years in the communication industry by raising £40,000 for charity.

As part of its HROC 4T Grand Challenge, the integrated marketing agency will be raising much needed funds for a host of local charities, including Birmingham Children’s Hospital (BCH). The events will include half marathons, swimathons and abseils to name but a few.

Carl Hazard, Managing Director at HROC, commented: “This is an extremely exciting year for our business. To reach our 40th anniversary is testament to the hard work and commitment of our staff and their ongoing effort and support. When the business was founded in 1979 by Phil Hollingsworth and Steve Riley there was only a small team of people and to see the business come to life with new divisions and a huge increase in staff members is just fantastic and something that we hope will continue moving forward.

“The Midlands is full of fantastic charities who provide amazing support to people who need it most. The team here at HROC are thrilled to be taking part in the activities planned and raising money for so many valuable charitable causes.”

Renowned for its diverse offering, HROC has developed a core team of over 60 communication specialists across public relations, social media, design, advertising, digital, media buying and video. Located in the heart of Birmingham, the company has worked with a host of well-known global and national brands.
