Speaking on the recent appointments and promotions, founder and Managing Director of Wild PR, Katrina Cliffe, said: “The recent client wins have been an amazing start to the year for the agency, and we expect to continue the success for the remainder of the year.
“Not only have the recent appointments helped us to grow as a business and welcome Ella and Lydia to Wild, but we can also celebrate the hard work the team have put in over the last few months. It has allowed us to modernise the structure of the teams within the agency and optimise our way of working to get the best possible results for our clients.”
