Integrated communications agency Carswell Gould has hired Ian Murray and Jen Humm as associate director of media and PR account director, respectively.
Murray joins the agency from the Southern Daily Echo, where he enjoyed a 19-year stint as editor, overseeing its print and online editions.
He will enhance the agency’s media and influencer connections and provide decades of experience in how to maximise media opportunities.
Murray is also the deputy executive at the Society of Editors, an organisation with over 400 members that promotes freedom of expression and highlights the vital role news plays in modern Britain.
Humm will head the Carswell Gould’s PR team and set direction for all clients to achieve maximum impact. She joins the agency after four and a half years working in P&O Cruises’ PR team and five years as an account director at Citrus PR.
Murray said: “I look forward to using my experience in the newsroom to help Carswell Gould’s clients secure high impact coverage in print and online media.”
Humm added: “This is an exciting time to be joining award-winning Carswell Gould. I relish the challenge of working closely with our growing client base – including recent wins Rinkit.com and Events in the Sky – to deliver the best results for them.”
Gareth Miller, Carswell Gould managing director, concluded: “We are delighted to welcome Ian and Jen to the team. The agency is extremely ambitious and prides itself on delivering measureable results for our clients and helping them grow.
“These appointments will add to the strength of our team and ensure that we build on our reputation as the most effective agency in the south.”
