Promotion handed to PR head, Senior

THE managing director of the Scottish division of public relations consultancy, Weber Shandwick, has been promoted within the company.

Nora Senior has been made chair of UK Regions and Ireland, which will see her take on a wider management role in the firm’s European business.

Weber Shandwick has eight offices in the UK, with a staff of over 380, and 22 offices throughout Europe. It has four offices in Scotland: Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness.

Said Senior: “I am delighted to take on the challenge of working in a wider UK and European role. It is a great reflection on the excellence of our business operations and management in Scotland as a whole that this experience can be a positive influence on a wider European platform.

“I believe the promotion underpins Weber Shandwick’s philosophy that there are no ‘glass ceiling’ barriers to achievement and that being involved in running a European business does not have to be done from London.”
