FOUNDER AND CHAIRMAN
I’m a communications specialist with more than 15 years’ experience in a range of journalistic, publishing and marketing roles. I set up Magenta in spring 2011 to plug the gap between the big PR agencies, which have huge expertise but not always the in-depth knowledge of the clients and publications, and the one-man-bands who are brilliant with their clients and the journalists but often don’t have the necessary bandwidth.
My Magenta role followed a career in B2B journalism which included founding and editing FM World magazine, and writing for titles as diverse as Marketing Week, Charity Finance, Soccer Analyst, Financial Management, Director, Supply Management and Unions Today.
I hold a Master’s degree in journalism and the CIPR’s Post-Graduate Diploma in public relations. I live a few minutes’ walk from Magenta’s Brighton office and am a parent governor of a local school.
