Freud Communications hires former Sun journalist Ben Jackson
Freud Communications has appointed Ben Jackson, a media specialist and former journalist for The Sun, as an associate director.
Jackson will join as an associate director in Freuds’ corporate division, The Brewery, which accounts for around a third of its 230-strong London staff.
New Zealand-born Jackson was the first environment editor to be appointed at a UK tabloid, holding the role at The Sun for six years before setting up his own environmental media content and consultancy firm in 2015.
Dr Arlo Brady, managing director at The Brewery, said: “More and more of our clients are demanding deep expertise on sustainability and purpose, and there is a strong appetite from our talented staff to work on these issues. We’re thrilled to have Ben join the agency, strengthening our offer in this space and increasing our impact on the issues we care about.”
