The Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) has made 14 additions to its community of PRCA fellows.
PRCA fellowships are awarded to individuals who have made a major contribution to the PR and communications industry.
David Gallagher, international president for growth and development at Omnicom Group and chairman of the PRCA fellows, said: “Because of the important role that they have played in the ongoing development of the PR and communications industry, it is my great pleasure to welcome 14 new PRCA fellows today. They are now part of the UK’s most elite body of PR and communications practitioners.
“I know that they will find the experience thought-provoking and productive.”
New fellows are invited to join at the recommendation of the chairman of fellows, the board chairman and the director general of the PRCA. Those recommendations are voted on by the PRCA board.
