Muckle Media bolsters team with two senior appointments and shortlists for six CIPR PRide awards

Muckle Media, the creative PR and digital agency, has made two senior appointments in Edinburgh as it gears up for a year of growth.

Mark Probert has been appointed as finance director and joins the agency in August. Mark will bring his sound financial judgement to the team as the agency seeks to increase revenue by nearly 50 per cent this year.

Also joining Muckle Media’s new central Edinburgh office is head of media and events, Annie Diamond, who started in February. Annie’s career has spanned agency and in-house roles in London and Scotland and she oversees a number of client accounts in the luxury sector.  

Ellie Wagstaff has been promoted to account manager, Helen Nimmo has joined as finance manager, Eilidh Marshall has rejoined the agency as senior account executive and QMU graduate Fiona Reyner has been retained as a permanent trainee PR account executive following a successful internship.

Annie Diamond said: “Muckle Media is well positioned for success having recently secured a string of high profile accounts. I am delighted to join the team during this growth period where I can make a real contribution to the business. I will be working with our clients to deliver impactful communications that not only positively impact the future of their business but also the future of Muckle Media.”

The agency has also been shortlisted for six CIPR Scotland PRide awards including: Outstanding Public Relations Consultancy; Best use of Media Relations; Arts, Culture or Sport Campaign; Consumer Relations Campaign and Corporate and Business Communications campaign. Ellie Wagstaff has also been shortlisted for Outstanding Young Communicator of the Year.

The agency is currently hiring at all levels following a number of exciting new business wins.

Nathalie Agnew, managing director, said: “Annie and Mark join Muckle Media’s senior team at an exciting time and will help to shape the future of the agency as we seek to best serve our clients with strategic communications programmes that deliver business results. This year we’ve moved into new city centre offices in both Edinburgh and Inverness and secured a number of high profile client wins, including supporting Mark Beaumont’s around the world in 80 days cycle. I’m really looking forward to working with all three our colleagues as we seek to grow to enter the top ten PR agencies outside London list by 2020.”
