London, 4th November 2011 – Aspectus PR, the specialist business technology, energy technology and financial technology PR agency, has promoted two senior members of staff following continued growth at the company and to support its strategy for further international expansion. Former account group director, Ellie Bacon, has been appointed to the newly-created position of deputy managing director of the UK business, while former account manager Katy Galasinski takes on the role of account director of financial technology.
Commenting on the announcement, Ellie Bacon, a former PR week 29 under 29, said: “With our well-established New York office and move to larger offices in central London, Aspectus PR is a very different agency from the one we were a few years ago. The creation of this role is a reflection of the success we have achieved thus far, and a clear indication of our strategy for further expansion. I will be working across our three core practices, as well as our London and New York offices, to support our management team and ensure best practice throughout the Agency.”
New account director Katy Galasinski said: “The strength of Aspectus PR’s financial services practice was a major factor for me in joining from Deloitte and I am excited by the opportunities presented by my new role. We have established a strong position in financial services and I intend to consolidate and build on this as account director, ensuring we continue to develop innovative programmes that deliver for clients through both the mainstream and social media channels.”
Having opened its New York office at the beginning of 2009, Aspectus PR continues to build out its international footprint, with plans now well underway to establish offices in Hong Kong and Germany. “Aspectus has experienced remarkable growth in recent years,” said managing director, Alastair Turner. “Our focus on the specialist areas of financial services, energy and business technology means we can service clients creatively and efficiently, adding real value to their business.
“This strategy, combined with our demonstrable track record in delivering results, continues to prove a compelling proposition to both clients and prospects. Key to maintaining this is a strong senior management team and in pursuit of this I am delighted to welcome both Ellie and Katy to their new roles. We are now actively seeking experienced professionals to lead our offices in Hong Kong and Germany.”
