Why Reading?Porterhouse Medical

Explaining why he and Jon chose to set up the agency in Reading, Brian said, “Reading is a great location for a med comms company like us. Our agency is full of bright and gifted young people, most of whom are educated to at least degree level, so we need to offer them a good reason to put down their roots here. Reading offers them a lot, with a great social scene, loads of restaurants, terrific shopping, theatre and football. It’s also really easy to escape to the river or the pretty surrounding countryside, or travel to the coast.”

Jon added, “Reading also has great road and rail connections, and with many of our clients being located abroad, the proximity to Heathrow is a bonus. At the same time, a number of our UK-based pharmaceutical clients are coming to Reading, with Green Park and the Thames Valley Science Park proving to be popular destinations. And the University of Reading is a great pool of talent from which we can recruit.”
