Reporting to Managing Director of McCann Bristol, Andy Reid, Pat will be working on clients including Cathay Pacific, FlyBe, Haynes Manuals and Bottle Green among others.
Andy commented: “Pat joins an incredibly strong senior management team and will supercharge our PR and social activity, making the 70-strong staff in Bristol a force to be reckoned with. We’re continuing to win work with some of the UK’s biggest brands and his creativity and knowledge of the sector can only help to strengthen that position.”
Pat added: “Joining McCann couldn’t be a better move. It’s a global powerhouse that I’ve always admired. Being part of the team is a huge honour and I can’t wait to grow the PR and social team even further. We’ve got some fantastic clients and soon there’ll be even more.”
