Eden Appoints New Director to Lead on Development

Eden Public Relations has announced the promotion of Senior Consultant, Emily Winsor Russell, to Director of the business.

The specialist public relations and marketing communications agency, which celebrates 21 years in business this year, has continued to extend its extensive media relations services alongside an established digital and social marketing offer.

Emily Winsor-Russell, who has been with the creative services business for over five years and also leads the new business development team, stepped into the Directorship alongside Joint Managing Directors Kathryn Greenwood and Isabel Jones. She will continue in her role as client Consultant and Business Development Director.

The agency, which works with some of the most well-known names in sectors across the UK from logistics to property, recruitment, insurance to funeral care, alongside event and exhibition support, has continued to grow the team and range of services since 2000, delivering exceptional results for clients requiring creative, eye-catching and headline-grabbing media relations and communications strategies.

Former journalist Emily joined the team in 2016 and since then has significantly contributed to the growth of the business by securing key account wins while making space for staff development, future-proofing strategy and expanding her knowledge of business management, at the same time as delighting her clients with sparkling media campaigns.

Emily said: “It is such an honour to join the Board of Directors at Eden alongside Kathryn and Isabel, who have inspired me and nurtured my professional development since the moment I joined the team. Their passion for the work that they do while doing an excellent job for our clients is not only infectious, but also very grounding.

“It’s a pleasure to work with like-minded colleagues who are fully involved with our crucial day-to-day account work and at the same time have steered the business successfully through turbulent times. I’m thrilled to be taking on more responsibility at Eden and very excited to contribute to shaping the next phase of the business as we continue to expand our client offering and invest in our brilliant team.”

Kathryn Greenwood continued: “We could not be more delighted that Emily has accepted her new role as Director with the firm. She is well respected among the team and across the client portfolio and the sector widely. The pandemic months were difficult for everyone, and we were absorbed with supporting clients who were learning to cope with a new working world and the challenges of a fast-shifting media and communications needs. Emily was instrumental in making sure that future of Eden also stayed in our sights.

“Our move to a new office earlier in the year has meant that we have been able to construct new studio spaces and align with new partners locally to offer services that complement our own. We are now operating as a complete marketing communications resource for our clients, and Emily is stepping into a position from which she can continue to successfully help steer the business.”
