Strategic comms and engagement consultancy JBP has appointed Steve Anderson-Dixon as its new chief executive.

Anderson-Dixon joins to support the company’s future growth ambitions. He was previously chief operating officer at Trinity Mirror’s regionals division, where he was responsible for the development of the company’s leading regional new brands including the Manchester Evening News and Liverpool Echo.

He will take over from current chief executive and founder Jennifer Bryant-Pearson, who will fill the new role of founder director and focus on client development. Managing directors Chris Lawrence and James Turgoose will continue to oversee the Bristol and London businesses respectively.

Bryant-Pearson said: “Steve has been a board director at JBP for a number of years and has an extensive track record in the media, as well as significant commercial acumen, which will help support our strategic business plans.

Anderson-Dixon added: “I’m pleased to have joined at a great time for JBP following a number of significant wins to complement our growing client base. The opportunity for further growth is really very exciting as we accelerate our strategic plan for what is one of the UK’s leading businesses in the PR, stakeholder engagement and public affairs industry.
