Bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge working with global brands in sectors including tourism, food and drink, housing and the third sector, the new team will complement Orbit’s existing media relations, community engagement and public affairs offering, allowing the company to offer comprehensive and creative communications packages under one roof.
The new team members are:

  • Kiera Winfield – Designer
The expanded team has already created an exciting new brand and website to better engage with potential clients.
Orbit Managing Director Alex Orr said: “Orbit is delighted to be able to announce this expansion of our services and team.  As a result, we are now uniquely placed in Scotland to help clients build their brand and enhance their reputation by offering an integrated package incorporating PR, public affairs, digital and design.”
Director Graeme Downie said: “John and his team have won numerous awards in previous roles and will bring an incredible range of skills and experience to Orbit, having worked with large organisations and government as well as major brands including Glenmorangie, Louis Vuitton and Chanel and third sector organisations ranging from charities to housing associations.”
Director Alex Bruce said: “We will continue to seek out opportunities for further expansion in the future, keeping us at the leading edge in our sector while providing the best outcomes for our clients.”
Potential clients will have the chance to learn more about how Orbit can help them to build their brand and enhance their reputation at a free breakfast seminar targeted at Scotland’s tourism, hospitality and food and drink sectors, taking place on the morning of Friday 24 November in central Edinburgh.
