Two new appointments join Prohibition PR

Prohibition's latest hires, Hill and Gardner

Prohibition PR has announced two new appointments, both of whom are crossing town from fellow Leeds agency Finn Communications.

Rachel Gardner, a specialist in the FMCG sector, has been appointed as Account Director having previously held the same position at Finn, where she led on multiple communication campaigns for household retail brands such as Asda, Jammie Dodgers, Cushelle and Finsbury Food Group.

Gardner will lead on delivering B2B and B2C PR strategies for Prohibition PR’s Food and Drink Division clients such as Primula, Fentimans and Sponge, as well as a growing list of new business wins, including Yorkshire Water.

Alongside Gardner appointment, Prohibition also welcomes Nick Hill, who takes the role of Junior Account Manager.

Prior to turning to the world of PR, Hill held editorial positions at Bdaily and TheBusinessDesk.com. As a B2B communications specialist, Nick will support Prohibition in expanding its B2B offering, and deliver creative and strategic content for various channels, including social media support and advertising, media relations and digital PR.

Chris Norton, founder and managing director of Prohibition, said: “2023 is set to be a hugely exciting and successful year here at Prohibition. Following a raft of new business wins, we wanted to recruit the right talent that not only aligned with our strategic approach, but also matched the agency’s ambitious goals of growing our experience in the Food & Drink and FMCG sector.”

The new appointments take the headcount to 28 at Prohibition, which celebrated 10-years in business just last year by moving to a new City Centre location in Leeds.
