Advent has made two key appointments to its leading public relations and media team.
We have appointed a new senior account and operations manager and an account manager as part of an expansion programme.
Jon Chinery has taken up the new role of senior account and operations manager, overseeing key client accounts but also working on the development and organisation of the company.
The new role sees him return to the firm after seven years working in marketing roles for the NFU and the Chartered Institute of Housing.
Adam Manning also joined Advent as account manager after four years with the Home Retail Group – which owns Homebase and Argos.
Advent managing director Adam Dent said: “We recorded very encouraging growth across all areas of the business last year and want to continue to build that in 2016.
“Jon has valuable experience not only in public relations but also in marketing and digital media, which is a major and growing part of the business. He will play a key role not only in attracting new clients but also helping to develop the systems which will allow us to move the business to the next level.
“Likewise, Adam has worked in-house at a major corporation and that experience will prove very useful. He is a graduate of Coventry University so it is great to be helping home-grown talent develop.”
Advent was founded 18 years ago and works across the UK for a range of clients in traditional and social media and online as well as print and design.
