This month, Jersey Road PR announces two exciting new appointments to our team as we continue to strengthen and expand our services.
Matt Anns joins as an account manager. A business and management graduate from the University of York, he has previously held media relations accounts for clients at the Tamarindo Group, a PR, marketing and communications agency. He also spent a year on Unilever’s industry-leading student placement scheme.
Jessica Martin, senior account director at Jersey Road PR, says: “We are delighted to welcome Matt to Jersey Road to work on some of our newest and biggest clients. He arrives with a wealth of corporate and PR experience, added to a deep understanding of the Christian sector.”
Matt will be working with clients including Operation Mobilisation (OM), Langham Partnership, Mercy Ships, Festival Manchester and Samaritan’s Purse.
With social media a key element of today’s PR strategy, we are also appointing Hollyanne Boyce as our first social media account executive. Previously a team leader in communications at the Methodist Church in Ireland, she also worked with freelance clients on social media and website development projects.
Jessica says: “We are excited to have Hollyanne as part of the Jersey Road team and building our base in Northern Ireland. She brings fantastic knowledge of social media engagement, in addition to a strong background working in the Christian sector.”
Hollyanne will be running Jersey Road PR’s own social media accounts as well as working with our clients to integrate social media into their PR plans.
