With a 20 year career in PR including director roles at IF Communication and global PR manager at Tarsus Group, Cordelia Meacher decided to go it alone and create her own dedicated PR agency for small and medium businesses and investors – Fieldhouse Associates. Having initially launched the business as a one-man band, the female entrepreneur now has a team of five, and a client list that spans the who’s who in the tech and venture space including Octopus Investments, MMC Ventures, Angel CoFund and Sunday Times Tech Track 100-listed Somo.
Headquarted in London with an office in Silicon Valley, Fieldhouse Associates is well on its way to achieving its aim of “helping the new generation of start-ups and venture capital firms reach their potential” with a profit sheet to match. Offering a multi-channel approach which includes PR campaigns, thought leadership, messaging, crisis management and networking introductions, the start-up agency looks to break away from PR stereotypes:
“It’s all about top-level strategic advice. No hype, no crazy creative, no way out promises. FieldHouse Associates sets out to achieve the best results by really understanding sectors and companies, by really getting under their skin”.
Keen to offer support to the wider business community, founder Meacher is also a BBC Worldwibe Labs mentor, is on the advisory board of Silicon Valley Comes to the UK, and serves as a judge for the Public Relations Consultant Association (PRCA) Awards.
