Team O keeps growing

As we acquire branding and design company Brand Sixty Eight as well as creating and appointing two new client-facing roles.

To continue to deal with an increasing portfolio of clients, we are excited to announce that we have recently acquired branding and design company Brand Sixty Eight as well as creating and appointing two new client-facing roles. 

The Brand Sixty Eight team join our creative and design team, with Cheryl Hughes of Hughes Advertising joining us as Account Director and Natalie Wilson joining as Client Services Director. 

We are renowned for delivering integrated campaigns not just in Wales, but across the UK and more recently globally, pulling in our in-house event, exhibition, advertising, PR, design, AV, Immersive Technology and TV production expertise. 

Recently in the news for winning a major contract with UEFA for the recent Champions League final in Madrid, we will continue to develop our integrated campaign offering with Cheryl and Natalie bringing a wealth of creative, marketing and account management experience to the team. 

Cheryl, an experienced marketer and Account Director, founded Hughes Advertising back in 1990. Natalie joins us following two years at Cardiff-based branding agency Stills, acting as client services director, and more recently as MD, for clients such as Welsh Water, Welsh Government, Life Sciences Hub Wales and global running brand Saucony. 

James Horsham, Managing Director of Brand Sixty Eight said: 

“We are very excited about this new chapter for the team. We can continue to do the great work we have always delivered, just now under the Orchard Group, which adds a broader offer of products and services to our existing clients.” 

Al Wilson, Director at Orchard said: 

“Despite operating in an uncertain climate, we’re proud to be able to grow our team and our offering so that we can continue to grow and deal with increasing service demands. 

We’re a strong team of 80 now, but it’s important to us that we keep the essence of what Orchard is all about and ultimately why people love working with us. We’re a team of highly skilled people who deliver brilliant results. We love to work as an extension to a team so that we can grow with our clients.

We’re delighted to welcome Brand Sixty Eight, Cheryl and Natalie to the Orchard team and we’re excited at what the future holds, for us and for our clients.”
