Yorkshire-based social media agency Prohibition PR has hired Ella Sykes as an account director to boost its growth strategy and bolster its B2B offering.
Sykes recently spent five years at ilk, leading on campaigns for brands such as KPMG and Barratt Homes. Prior to that she specialised in food PR and marketing.
Sykes said: “I have been aware of Prohibition since it won Outstanding Small Agency at the CIPR Yorkshire and Lincolnshire Awards in 2015. The company has been making waves in the PR world ever since, so when it came to looking for my next career step, it was an obvious choice.
“I am looking forward to working on some exciting new campaigns and helping Prohibition become the number one PR and social media agency in the North.”
Prohibition has plans to move its offices into new, larger premises in 2017.
Chris Norton, managing director of Prohibition, added: “By focusing on organic growth, we are in the fortunate position where we are able to be very strategic about the type of work we take on board. We see Ella as being central to this approach and look forward to seeing how both her creativity and expertise will positively impact our business development throughout 2017 and beyond.”
