Babel PR, an integrated technology PR and communications agency, has promoted Matt Humphries to UK MD.
Humphries has been with Babel since 2008, and will now head up the London office.
He has been leading the firm’s new business initiatives and telecoms practice and will now act as MD, supporting co-founders Ian Hood and Narelle Morrison with overseeing UK operations, new business prospects, client services and team development.
Humphries said: “The industry has changed a lot since I joined Babel eight years ago, but what hasn’t changed is the demand for the brand of sector intelligence and consultancy that we as an agency provide to technology companies. Our expertise now extends beyond the telecoms and enterprise domains, covering Fintech, IoT, VOD and eCommerce. I’m looking forward to taking a leading role in driving our continued growth.”
Hood added: “Matt was the obvious choice for the UK MD role. As the company’s longest standing employee, time and time again he has proven himself to be invaluable to the team, his clients and the wider business. With Matt taking on the responsibility of managing the UK business, it enables Babel to pursue international ambitions.”
