Janet’s experience ranges from brand management and digital marketing to sponsorship activation and PR. She has worked across large-scale projects including the 2014 Commonwealth Games and Andy Murray Live presented by SSE.

In her role as digital and PR account manager, Janet will be responsible for managing a range of clients to ensure the agency is always delivering the best results, as well as working with Represent’s senior management team to bring in new clients.

Commenting on her move to Represent, Janet said: “With experience in delivering creative PR and digital campaigns for some amazing clients, I knew Represent was the agency for me. I’m really looking forward to drawing on my previous experience and working with a fantastic team to deliver amazing work for our clients.”

Speaking of the new appointment, Represent’s managing director, Judith O’Leary, commented: “Janet brings a fresh perspective to agency life having come from an in-house role at one of Scotland’s biggest companies. Her experience working across large scale campaigns, whether from a PR, digital or sponsorship perspective makes her the perfect appointment for us. 2018 is continuing to be an exciting year and we are delighted to have Janet as part of the team.”

Formerly O’Leary PR, Represent relaunched with a move to a new Edinburgh office in February 2017. Since then, Represent has gone from strength to strength, welcoming new team members, securing new clients and expanding its service offering.  The multi-disciplined team work across a range of industries including agriculture, travel and tourism, technology, professional services and membership organisations, with clients such as 20/20 Productions, The Royal Highland & Agricultural Society of Scotland, Campion Homes and Scottish Environmental Protection Agency.
