Birmingham-based strategic communications consultancy Urban Communications has strengthened its team by appointing Jo Dain to the newly-created role of account director.
With more than ten years’ PR experience, Ms Dain has extensive knowledge of a wide range of sectors and disciplines, having previously worked for Euro RSCG Biss Lancaster and Weber Shandwick.
Ms Dain returns to the West Midlands after spending time in Edinburgh and most recently London where she was a PR account director with Launch Group.
At Urban, she will be responsible for client handling on a number of accounts including Birmingham Forward, the professional services lobby group, and BXL, which prepares young people for work and engages employers in education.
Urban managing director Kevin Johnson said: “Our vision has always been about providing a board level service to our clients and the appointment of Jo is testament to this. The last 12 months have seen continued growth for Urban and this appointment will ensure that we have even greater depth to provide exceptional client service.”
