PR agency Portland has promoted Sam Ingleby to senior partner and head of its 75-strong internal corporate team.
The corporate group provides expertise across corporate communications, public affairs, local, employee engagement and financial communications. It includes a dedicated Brexit unit.
Ingleby will report to Mark Flanagan, managing director of Portland’s corporate and health practices.
Flanagan said: “The Corporate team has grown significantly in terms of size and complexity in recent years. Sam has been a hugely influential member of the leadership team, and has been critical to our growth.”
Ingleby, who joined Portland as an account manager eight years ago, helped expand the group and lead its work with clients such as BAE Systems, O2 and Uber.
He said: “I’m delighted to be working with such a strong team and an unrivalled set of clients. The work we do has changed tremendously since I joined, with constant investment in new capabilities.”
