I joined Finn Partners when Johnson King was acquired in October 2014. Prior to that, I’d already been with Johnson King for seven years, having joined from Houston Associates – a firm specialising in business to business PR for electrical engineering firms.
In that time, I’ve built up experience in managing daily PR activities for a huge range of B2B tech firms in lots of different markets, including financial services, insurance, IT security, data centre, storage, networking, IT service management, and cloud. In my time I’ve worked with brands including Bosch, Schneider Electric, Enterprise Ireland, Sophos, Verne Global, Vormetric, Dimension Data, HEAT Software and SGI.
My experience ranges from helping clients to design integrated multi-region PR campaigns, right down to creating and distributing social media content on a daily basis. I’m at home helping client customers join the PR process with quotes, press releases, and case studies, generating industry award entries (that win), introducing CxO level executives to the UK’s most influential journalists and analysts, and being the first point of contact for my clients’ PR officers.
Away from the office, my major interest is cycling. When I’m not putting in the miles, I’m an avid follower of the sport, watching as much as I can throughout the season – preferably live – as well as reading about the sport, its history, and its luminaries. If I’m not riding or tinkering with my bikes, I can usually be found trying my hand at gardening and DIY.
