PR agency, Prova, has strengthened its thriving logistics team with two new appointments. Sarah Hawkins has joined as office manager, while Beccie Stevenson has come aboard on the account handling side.
Renowned for its work with major players within the industry, Prova currently handles the communications for leading independent logistics consultancy Total Logistics, international logistics systems business, Savoye and pallet solutions provider, LPR, amongst others.
For Sarah, her appointment follows a similar role at Prodrive, the company behind Mini’s recent entry into the World Rally Championship. Sarah cut her teeth in the automotive technology and events industry at Prodrive by organising events at the Prodrive Performance Centre, providing office facilities co-ordination, managing health and safety company wide and providing site standards and administration support of the operational teams.
Beccie Stevenson has been welcomed at Prova after almost three years in London with PR agency Grayling. Following her degree in Politics at Leeds, Beccie joined the CSR, Sustainability and Not-for-profit team at Grayling, where she worked on various campaigns. These included Land Rover’s sustainability strategy and the Technology Strategy Board’s Ultra-Low Carbon Vehicle project. Beccie will be building on this experience by providing support on a range of accounts across Prova’s logistics, automotive, environmental and consumer sectors.
Richard Postins of Prova commented: "We are delighted to welcome both Sarah and Beccie to the team at such an exciting time for the company. As well as being recognised as a leading communications agency within specialist sectors we are going from strength to strength in extending our consumer offering.
"Beccie’s knowledge of working on well-respected, award-winning campaigns and Sarah’s keen eye for high standards and a process-driven nature, will no doubt enhance the team’s dynamism and expertise."
