Following a competitive pitch process, ideas-led agency, Frank PR, has been appointed on a retained basis by tax specialists, H&R Block.
The appointment of an award-winning PR partner comes as H&R Block aims to cement its established position by becoming the principal voice of authority on all tax related matters in Australia.
H&R Block has been part of the taxation landscape since 1971 and the appointment of Frank PR signals its determination to take a fresh approach, as it seeks to harness creativity and the power of social media to engage young and entrepreneurial audiences with its evolving brand and services.
