Logistics and maritime PR and marketing company Image Line Communications has appointed two new members of staff, strengthening its PR and editorial talent as it looks to grow the business across all divisions.
Damian Brett is Image Line’s new PR Manager, while Matt Green is the company’s new PR Executive. The appointments are in response to the growth Image Line has experienced over the past year and in line with the company’s strategic plans to maintain that momentum.
Both Mr Brett and Mr Green come from a journalistic background, which contributes to the company’s unique ability to offer material written for journalists by journalists.
Image Line Director Sue Terpilowski says: "At Image Line we are judged on the quality of copy that we can provide publications, so enhancing our team with two new members of staff who both have journalistic backgrounds is important to us.
"By employing individuals who understand and speak the same language as journalists use, we are able to ensure that our clients get the maximum quality coverage possible."
"The appointments clearly demonstrate Image Line’s investment and commitment as a growing company in the Multimodal sectors with ambitious plans for the future."
Mr Brett, along with other members of the team, is responsible for writing press releases, interviews, features, promotional copy, newsletters, blogs and award entries. He also helps manage various email and social networking campaigns on behalf of Image Line clients.
He brings a wealth of journalistic experience to the role, having previously written for the multimodal freight and logistics publications IFW and Lloyd’s Loading List over the past four years.
Mr Green is responsible for compiling monthly activity reports, distributing and writing press releases, arranging interviews and monitoring press cuttings. He works hand in hand with the rest of the PR department to deliver services to all Image Line clients.
He joined Image Line after graduating from the University of Brighton with a Sport Journalism degree. During his three year course, he qualified as an NCTJ-accredited journalist and learnt the fundamental skills for a successful career in Public Relations.
