The Chartered Institute of Public Relations has promoted Koray Camgoz to PR manager, as Andrew Ross departs to become media relations manager at the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry.
Camgoz (pictured left) joined the CIPR in November 2011 and held several development roles before being named PR and policy offer in February 2014, reporting to Ross (pictured right).
He takes over as PR manager next Thursday (21 April), the day after Ross’ departure, and will report to Sarah Ion, head of marketing comms at the CIPR.
Ross said: “Koray has been full-circle with the CIPR, working across multiple departments, with some fantastic colleagues and alongside some valued and experienced volunteers.
“This will stand him in good stead to take on this new challenge and I’m confident he will play a key role in the CIPR continuing to lead the professionalization of the practice of public relations.”
Ross has been at the CIPR for nearly six years. He joined the organisation’s comms and policy team in 2011, after working on events, and was named PR and policy manager in January 2014.
He takes on his new media relations manager role at the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry on 25 April. Joining a three-strong PR team, he will report to head of media relations Elaine Towell.
