Case Studies and Testimonials

The Challenge

The North’s leading motor dealership group, RRG currently owns 25 dealerships including franchises in Toyota, Kia, Lexus, Toyota, Mazda, Peugeot, Suzuki, and most recently Nissan. Charged by its Japanese owners, the Marubeni Corporation, RRG is currently putting plans in place to double the size of the business by 2015. In tandem with the rolling out of these business plans, Forevergreen PR was tasked with growing the group’s profile and increasing stakeholder engagement.

Our Work

Raising awareness of RRG Group’s reputation as a quality provider of new and used cars across the North, we profiled the group through traditional and social media strategies as a reputable business with a commitment to investing in local values, the local economy, and customer satisfaction. Centred on a campaign around RRG’s 45th anniversary, media coverage was garnered through the arrangement of test drives with new flagship releases including the Toyota GT86, and through the creation of transparent business stories surrounding the group’s expansion announcement.

Outside of the expansion, further work involved CSR and sporting activities including sponsorship of Olympic long jump hopeful Abigail Irozuru, fundraising for The Christie and Pudsey, as well as supporting a local breast cancer group – Paddlers for Life – and sponsorship of kit for local sports clubs. Internal communications have also been enhanced with a new-look internal newsletter, and ongoing social media engagement helps to raise the profile of RRG and its customers.


Over a nine month period Forevergreen PR monitored over 130 clippings with an estimated equivalent advertising value of almost £300,000 across local and regional business, lifestyle and trade publications.

I thoroughly enjoy working with Tania whenever I have a PR brief for her. Whether it’s as simple as writing press releases, or securing coverage, or coming up with ideas to ensure we gain maximum publicity, Tania always delivers. Not only that, she lacks the usual “fluff” is straight talking, works quickly and gets on with the task. She is also a very calming and reassuring influence. I’d love to work with her again.

Thank you for everything you have done to help make my first book the best it can be. I just wanted you to know that I was very happy with the editing, and your skills, dedication, and professionalism have certainly helped to make Connecting to Your Inner Light a bestseller. You have managed to keep “my voice” and “my energy” during your editing. You are easy to work with and you truly understand the concepts the author wants to get across.
