Harrogate integrated PR & communications agency, Acceleris, has further bolstered its ranks with the appointment of Mike Renton, 25, as a senior account executive.
Having studied Film and Television Production at Leeds Metropolitan University, Mike qualified as a journalist and worked as a reporter for the York Press.
He previously held the position of north of England campaign manager for one of the main political parties where his role involved running election campaigns for members of Parliament and local councillors, as well as organising ministerial visits to local constituencies.
Managing director at Acceleris, Peter Davenport, said:
“This latest addition to our team comes at a very busy time for Acceleris, following a spate of major new client wins.
“With the continued resurgence of confidence across many sectors of the economy we are seeing increasing numbers of new business opportunities and it is important we have the resource in place to capitalise on these.”
The agency has recently opened offices in the capital’s famous Regent Street.
Acceleris works for clients in the public, private and third sectors, including many which have their main offices in London.
The agency has also been shortlisted for a number of major industry awards due to be announced over coming weeks.
