Motionlab has appointed Jess Hardisty as its head of public relations.

She’ll be responsible for all content marketing and client engagement requirements at the digital agency.

Hardisty joins from British Independent Utilities, where she was PR and marketing manager, prior to that she was an account manager at Freshfield in Preston.

“Content marketing will feature prominently in our upcoming work for clients such as the newly developed Build Show and I’m looking forward to developing and extending Motionlab’s offering in this area,” she said.

It’s further expansion for the Preston-based agency, which last year set up an Interactive division.
