Punch Communications Promotes Kirsty Shaw to Account Director

LEICESTER, UNITED KINGDOM (rushPRnews) 04/26/12 — Integrated PR, search and social media agency Punch Communications has announced the promotion of Kirsty Shaw from account manager to account director. Since joining the company in November 2011, Kirsty has brought to Punch her extensive knowledge and expertise of traditional PR, as well as combining SEO and social media to offer a more rounded approach.

Since launching back in 2003, Punch Communications has developed its role from traditional public relations to an integrated PR, search and social media agency, boasting an impressive client base from global to start-up brands across a variety of sectors. Punch’s team has grown to accommodate its clients over the years, and now stands at 22 members strong, with the hope to expand further. The promotion is the third within the company this month.

Kirsty will now direct a number of client accounts, including those in the technology, consumer and gaming industries, as well as Punch’s internal PR. Kirsty started her career at the BBC as a producer across key daytime radio programmes in Oxford, before moving into PR. Kirsty has previously worked with a number of high profile brands within the business, consumer and technology sectors and has been able to quickly adapt to the fast-paced working environment at Punch.

 Speaking of her well-deserved promotion, Kirsty said: “I was ecstatic to find out that Punch has the confidence in my ability to head up client accounts, and has given me the opportunity to step into the account director role.” She continued: “I am looking forward to becoming more centrally involved with each client as well as being involved in the general management at Punch.”

Pete Goold, managing director at Punch said of the promotion: “With Kirsty’s fantastic skillset and passion for the company, it would have been wrong not to promote her to a more senior role. Despite only joining Punch six months ago, she has already managed to secure her place as account director and I am sure her enthusiasm will continue into her new role.”
