Marine and outdoor communications agency, ADPR, announces its owner and Managing Director, Kate O'Sullivan, has been named in South West Business Insider's prestigious 42 Under 42 feature. The annual list showcases the region's top business leaders and entrepreneurs under 42 years of age.

It's been a fantastic journey so far, we've grown the agency, launched new branding and won both a Gold and Silver award from the Chartered Institute of Public Relations for a client's campaign. My focus is on growing the agency sustainably, offering new services while remaining true to our core skills."
