A Leeds based PR agency has appointed an account executive to support the company’s fast expansion since its inception in April 2015.
MacComms has appointed Emily Docherty to support the business’s growing client base. The appointment comes after the firm secured two new contract wins, including vehicle-hire company, Arrow Self-Drive and men’s fashion brand, Vanacci.
Emily joins the team after graduating with a first in advertising and marketing communications at The University of Huddersfield. She also received the white rose award for outstanding performance from the course leader, alongside being named on the ‘Dean’s list’ for excellence.
Emily will be responsible for supporting the management team in handling a number of key accounts, whilst also providing overall support to business growth and development.
Formed in April 2015, MacComms is founded and run by leading West Yorkshire businesswoman Ellie MacDonald who has almost a decades’ PR and marketing experience.
Just two years since forming, MacComms has helped more than 60 firms to raise their profile and supported a number fellow start-up and scale-up businesses, based both locally and nationally.
Founder and managing director, Ellie MacDonald, said: “From the moment I interviewed Emily I knew she would be the perfect addition to my growing team.
“She represents the values I am proud to have built MacComms upon and Emily has made a great start. I’m sure she has a long and bright future ahead of her with us.”
Emily Docherty, account executive, said: “I’m incredibly excited to join such a passionate and hardworking team. I’m looking forward to being part of the business’s growth plans and being able to support their expanding client base.”
