Midlands communications consultancy firm Allman Communication has taken on a new face to help deal with its strategic employee engagement department.
Louise Bucknall has more than 12 years' experience in both internal and external corporate communications.
She has joined the team at the Derbyshire-based firm from Taylor Woodrow, where she was the group's Corporate Communications Manager. Before that she had senior roles at Saatchi & Saatchi (London) and Severn Trent Water.
Allman managing director Lesley Allman said: "Louise has an impressive track record and will be a huge asset to us. I'm very excited to have her on board as part of our senior team.
"Her appointment comes at a key time for Allman Communication as we strengthen our corporate communication offering and grow our client base."
Louise will start work on recent account wins including health and beauty retailer Boots and leading pub company Enterprise Inns.
Allman Communication's other work includes ongoing employee communication for Premier Foods, the UK's biggest food manufacturer, as well as support for alcohol responsibility organisations The Portman Group and The Drinkaware Trust.
A previous campaign for Coors Brewers won Gold at the CIPR Midlands Pride Awards for use of Internal Communication.
