Meehan Media & Comms has appointed Rick Lyon as its new Communications Director.

Lyon joins from Bishop Burton College, where he was Marketing Director.

Prior to that he spent more than 13 years at the Hull Daily Mail, with almost 6 of those as News Editor.

“This is a great opportunity for me to join a PR and communications consultancy with an outstanding track record and unrivalled client roster,” he said.

“Hull and the Humber is enjoying unprecedented and ongoing investment and Meehan Media & Comms has played a positive and important role as the area’s leading PR and communications provider.”

Lyon will be working alongside Managing Director, John Meehan - himself a former Editor of the Hull Daily Mail - on growing the agency.

“We’re delighted to bring Rick on board. His experience and skills add considerably to our already unrivalled expertise within the Hull and Humber region to deliver highly effective PR and communications activity and campaigns,” said Meehan.

“We’re proud to be the comms partner of choice for the region’s biggest inward investors and many of the area’s leading businesses who are at the forefront of the area’s regeneration.

“Rick’s appointment provides the additional capacity and capability to build on our success and grow further.”
