A little bit about us

Mason was founded in 2003 by seasoned journalists, Nick and Lucy Mason. Both had served their time with the Daily Mail in London but wanted to return north and establish their own business.

While starting out as a PR company, our offer has developed to also include strategic marketing advice, brand development and a range of digital services.

Many of our services are delivered by our hard-working in-house team which includes experienced PR professionals, marketers, content curators and social media whizzes.

When required, we partner with some of the best creative minds in the business to ensure our clients receive the most exceptional work possible.

We aim to bring a refreshing approach to each and every project. This means getting the strategy right and then delivering the results which can have a tangible impact on your company, brand or organisation.

We’ll also do our best to ensure we forge a great working relationship that is enjoyable for both sides.

Nick’s knowledge and expertise in how to communicate a message to a variety of media is second to none. I attribute a great deal of our success in promoting our business and our message, and the subsequent growth of our business, to the work of Mason.

Nick is a true professional and has to be one of the top PR guys in the North West. I've used Nick on a number of projects where he has over delivered against my expectation which was high in the first place.
