Andrew Montlake joins Newspage as non-executive director

Coreco’s managing director, Andrew Montlake, has joined Newspage as a non-executive director.

The PR platform — which launched in May — gives intermediaries, from mortgage and insurance advisers to stockbrokers and IFAs, the chance to be featured in the local, trade, national and even international media for free.

It enables brokers to create their own publicly visible and fully branded media centre in a matter of minutes.

The platform allows users to add experts, create tags for their areas of expertise and add any content that could be of use to the media, such as headshots and corporate brochures, as well as receive news alerts in the app to breaking or upcoming news stories that they could contribute to.

“Newspage is doing something that’s never been done before, which is to give every company the chance to be in the mainstream media, for free,” said Andrew.

“I have said for years that it would be great to get more voices out there showing the great things we do in our industry and now there is a tool to do exactly that, and not just for people in financial services and property, but in all industries. 

“I’ve known Dominic [Hiatt], the founder of Newspage, for many years and genuinely believe what they're doing could grow into something really quite big."

Dominic added: “To have someone of Monty’s calibre and connections onboard is a real boost for everyone at Newspage and a vindication of our model. 

“He knows financial services and property inside out, knows his way around the media and, best of all, is in a rock band. 

“His advice and expertise will be invaluable as we continue to grow.”

Some of the clients that have been using Newspage include Shaw Financial Services and Missing Element Mortgage Services.

Lewis Shaw, founder of Shaw Financial Services, commented: “Since creating my Newspage, I’ve been featured in countless national newspapers, trades and also my local newspaper, which is great for leads.”

Paul Neal, founder of Missing Element Mortgage Services, added: “I created my own Newspage after seeing the success a number of other brokers were having. 

“Since then, we’ve been featured in several newspapers and various other trade magazines. 

“I cannot recommend Newspage enough, as it’s giving people like me who would never hire a conventional PR agency a fast-track into the media.”
