One of Scotland’s best-known PR consultants has been appointed a director at a media consultancy founded by a former Sunday Mail political editor and a former Scotland correspondent for BBC network news.
Charlie Mann becomes McGarvie Morrison Media’s first PR director and he will work alongside founding directors Lindsay McGarvie and John Morrison to grow a business which includes Keppie Design, Heriot Watt University and artist Andy Scott on its client list. MMM recently won what it describes as “a significant new account” on behalf of City Building (Glasgow) LLP.
Mann’s has long been a well-known voice on BBC Radio Scotland’s football coverage. He joins an eight-strong team at the Glasgow PR and public affairs agency, his CV including working alongside Lithuanian businessperson, Vladimir Romanov, as he gained ownership of Heart of Midlothian Football Club.
A former office head at Weber Shandwick PR agency, he has held senior roles with some of the country’s other leading organisations, including the Wood Group, Tennents and United Distillers.
McGarvie Morrison Media was established four years ago.
Says McGarvie: “We are at an important stage in the growth of MMM and attracting someone like Charlie Mann – who has extensive brand, crises management and corporate PR experience as well as a sponsorship exploitation background – adds to our ability to deliver results for clients.”
