Leeds-headquartered agency Finn Communications has recruited Matt Bourn (pictured) from MWW to head its new London office, which opens next month.
The move will extend the 10 year-old agency’s consumer, trade and corporate PR services to media brands, as well as bring new content and platform expertise to the agency’s existing clients.
Bourn is the former MD of Braben and, most recently, SVP Europe of MWW PR’s media practice, where he has successfully built a client base including Bloomberg Media, Sky Media, Bauer Media, and the Content Marketing Association.
Finn clients include Taylor’s of Harrogate, Quorn Foods, ghd, Morphy Richards, R&R Ice Cream and Addo Food Group.
Richard Rawlins, MD of Finn, said: “The appointment of Matt and the opening of our London office is a significant milestone for Finn. We deliver largely national briefs from Leeds and this strengthens our connection with London’s influencer base. At the same time, we can apply Matt’s deep knowledge and expertise in the media sector to the many consumer and B2B challenges facing our clients.”
Matt Bourn, partner and director, Finn London, added: “Clients need agency partners who can manage and build reputation to positively impact on commercial performance. I am hugely excited to be joining Finn which is perfectly sited at the heart of consumer brands, technology and the media landscape.”
