PRCA announces Lotte Jones as new Vice-Chairman of PRCA Creative Group
The PRCA is pleased to announce that Lotte Jones, Creative Director, Teneo Blue Rubicon, has joined the PRCA Creative Group as its Vice-Chairman.
Jones joins the PRCA Creative Group having led campaigns for the likes of Diageo, Land Securities, and Dog’s Trust, as well as sitting on the Teneo Blue Rubicon board and leading the award-winning 2010 General Election campaign for Facebook. Jones will work alongside the PRCA Creative Group’s existing Vice-Chairman Blair Metcalfe, Director, MSLGROUP.
Nick Woods CMPRCA, Partner, Well Hello, and PRCA Creative Group Chairman, said: “We’re delighted to have Lotte join us, she represents the future of creative leadership in British PR – original, fearless, female and hugely talented.
“Last year we held a number of events aimed at inspiring the next generation of creatives in the industry, from our ‘PR and Creative WTF’ event at Karmarama to our Cannes or Cannt event at Porter Novelli and our Ignite event with the PRCA’s Digital Group. This year we’re planning more, bigger and better.”
Lotte Jones MPRCA, Creative Director, Teneo Blue Rubicon, and PRCA Creative Group Vice-Chairman, said: “Given there are approximately ten male creative directors for every one female creative director in the UK public relations industry, I hope I can help create more events specifically aimed at changing this pretty poor statistic.”
