About Accelerate PR

Founded in 2008 by Joel Newman, Accelerate PR has gone from strength to strength, expanding its service offering to cater for both automotive and non-automotive industries.

The small, but knowledgable team regularly secure placements in publications such as The Telegraph, The Sun, Auto Express, Classic and Sports Car and Evo Magazine. Accelerate PR’s clients to date have included companies as varied as GSF Car Parts, Motorbase Performance, Wolf and Badger, Taunton School, ValetPRO, Apec Braking and Quantum Cryogenics.

With over 130,000 “likes” on the Accelerate PR Facebook page and a weekly reach of over two and a half million UK residents, we’re responsible for a range of campaigns that have driven engagement and sales; we are proud of our prowess in digital marketing.

Social media is an ideal place to tell a story, build an audience and leverage the power of technology to spread that message faster than ever before… all at the fraction of the cost of a traditional advertising campaign (thankfully those days are over!).

Why not give the team a call to discuss your next campaign?

Meet Joel Newman, MD

“I began my career working in the press office of famed film director Ridley Scott over in Los Angeles. After two successful years and having worked on feature films and commercials I decided to follow my passion and returned to the UK in 2001 with a mission.”

Ever since his return to the UK, until the end of 2008, Joel worked as the full-time Feature Writer then Editor of a celebrated car magazine, in addition to his freelance writing (see jdnewman.co.uk).
With past experience in promotion, media representation and journalism Joel decided the time was right and put his two passions together to create Accelerate PR: a PR and social media agency staffed by the very best journalists, writers, photographers, designers, social and digital marketers.

Accelerate PR serves one purpose: getting you, your product or your service noticed by the people who count.
