Jonathan Morrish to take on consultancy role for PRS for Music
Jonathan Morrish to join PRS for Music
I am delighted to be working for PRS for Music in an advisory PR role.
I very much look forward to working with Robert as well as supporting Andy Hind and his team in his new position as Acting Head of Corporate Communications. I shall continue in my consultancy capacity at PPL as the two companies work more and more closely together.
Jonathan was previously Director of PR and Corporate Communications, PPL for eight years, relinquishing the full time role last summer to move into a consultancy position for Peter Leathem and his executive team. Jonathan started his career in PR in the mid-seventies for CBS Records, subsequently Sony Music, where, in a long career he held a number of UK and international PR positions working with many different artists and on a range of corporate issues. Prior to joining PPL in 2006, Jonathan was Head of Corporate PR at The Outside Organisation for three years.
I am very pleased that Jonathan has agreed to join PRS where I know his experience and contacts will be very valuable.
He will bring much knowledge and practical benefit to Andy and the whole PR team as well as across the whole company.
