He has worked for a number of PR and full-service marketing agencies, and ran his own successful automotive PR consultancy for seven years.
John Close joins as an account executive, having previously worked as an editorial assistant at Haymarket Media. He brings four years’ experience of digital media and online communications for blue chip automotive clients.
Ben White also joins PFPR as an account executive. Ben has contributed to an automotive blog for several years and formerly worked as a Transport Planner for a highway engineering consultancy. He previously gained experience within the consumer motoring media.
Events co-ordinator, Rosie Anderson, was recruited to join PFPR’s specialist automotive events team, having graduated with a BA (Hons) in Events Management.
Client Services Director, Peter Cox, commented, “We have been strengthening our team to ensure we remain the number one specialist automotive PR and events agency in Europe. These new recruits bring invaluable additional skills and experience across all levels of the agency just as PFPR is experiencing significant growth and is engaged in a number of new business pitches. I’m looking forward to seeing them contribute to PFPR’s ongoing development and success.”
