LONDON—UK corporate comms firm Hanover has reported fee income growth of 49% in 2013, taking its earnings to almost £7.5m.

The agency's London office grew by 61% to £6,69m while its Brussels presence increased by 35% to £700k.

Hanover MD Charles Lewington attributed the expansion to strong organic growth across  digital, reputation management, healthcare, TMT, and sport.

"A majority of the organic growth comes from our healthcare business, particularly large global pharmaceuticals," said Lewington. "If you do a good job for big pharma, they move you around the business."

The firm, which was founded in 1998, now counts 46 staffers in London and a further 8 in Brussels. Clients include Sky, Lloyds, Siemens, Shire, Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, Airbus, The British Beer & Pub Association and the European Commission (DG Enterprise). 

Lewington noted that the firm may expand deeper into Europe, but ruled out a Washington DC office.
