Reputation Communications’ MD Patrick Barrow elected to Media Society council

The Media Society, a charitable organisation that organises events to discuss topics in the media, has elected Reputation Communications’ MD and co-founder, Patrick Barrow, to its council. 

The Media Society‘s council ensures the society’s activities and events have a broad appeal and attract attendees interested in media.

Barrow, who co-founded Reputation Communications, joins the council, which includes president Richard Peel, who has worked at BBC News, social commentator Peter York, former Today programme editor Phil Harding and Barney Jones,The Andrew Marr Show‘s editor, among others.

He said: “The Media Society is an organisation whose relevance is becoming more acute as the whole nature of how people consume, perceive and demand media changes so dramatically. More than ever, there’s a personal stake for all in what media looks like and what it has to say. It’s an exciting time and I’m very pleased to have been asked to contribute and bring, what I hope, is a different perspective from ’the dark side’ of PR.”

Peel added: “Patrick will be a tremendous addition to the Society’s Council. His experience in regional journalism and as part of a national newspaper team, along with his spell as Director General of the Public Relations Consultants Association (PRCA), will enable him to add knowledge and experience and fresh thought to the Council’s deliberations. We are delighted that he has agreed to join us.”
