Publicity Engineers appoint new MD
Publicity Engineers Ltd is pleased to announce long-standing team member, Emily McCullagh, has been promoted to Managing Director.
Emily took the helm of specialist KBB, Home & Interiors Public Relations consultancy, Publicity Engineers in January 2020, as owner & founder Rob Nicholls became Chairman.
Even though Rob will remain an integral part of Publicity Engineers, Emily’s new role will afford him more time to explore semi-retirement, having spent almost 25 years as the head of the company and reaching retirement age last June.
Emily joined Publicity Engineers almost ten years ago and brought many years sales and media experience from her time at two well-established publishers. From there, she worked her way up from PR executive to Commercial Manager / Head of PR and then Associate Director, before now accepting her new role as Managing Director.
Speaking about her promotion Emily says, “I could not be more grateful to Rob for this opportunity, and wish to thank him for being a great mentor over the years and entrusting me with this new leadership role at PE. I am extremely fortunate to be able to head up such a long-established industry brand and am confident I can further add to the company’s successes.”
“We have a fantastic portfolio of clients I genuinely love working with and a great team of KBB experts that all know how to have a good time! I firmly believe that Publicity Engineers is well placed to grow and continue to develop in the market and I am confident that in our new roles, Rob and I can achieve this” says Emily.
Rob comments, “Emily fully deserves her promotion, during her tenure she has demonstrated loyalty, reliability and critically, a fundamental understanding of business and the KBB market. She has formidable strengths, not least her dedication to clients and her overall drive and hard work ethos.”
He adds, “After almost 25 years in PR and many years in Publishing, I feel that the time is right for me to travel less and reduce my involvement on a day-to-day basis, adopting a more financial and steering role. I will of course remain available for clients or to the many friends in the press that I had made during my 38 years in the KBB industry.”
