Lisa McGauley has joined Acceleris in Harrogate after almost 2 years as PR manager at Daisy Group PLC.

With 10 years experience as well as a PR degree from Leeds Met, she’s also worked at agencies including AKA PR and Brand8.

Her arrival coincides with a series of promotions at Acceleris, with Ellie Smith named senior account manager and Laura Cushley becoming senior account executive.

“We continue to invest in talented staff to ensure we are able to deliver first class campaigns that fulfill our client’s objectives across the whole integrated communications spectrum. Our team continues to grow and we are looking forward to a healthy 2014,” said Acceleris managing director Peter Davenport.

In 2013, the agency won contracts from the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations and the Meridian Motor Group.
