We’re very excited to announce that Laura Stoddart has joined our team as an account manager. Laura will be taking over a range of client responsibilities from Harriet while she is on maternity leave.
Laura’s passion for public relations first started when she did an internship at Orchard in 2014 while completing her degree in Events Management with French at Regent’s University.
Before her return to Orchard, Laura gained a wealth of experience working for companies including global brand Specsavers and Lagardère Sports & Entertainment. She managed the Specsavers magazine for three years and worked on a variety of PR campaigns and events, including frame launches for Disney and Hype and the 2016 UEFA Paris FanZone for the European Championships.
Chris Chilton, Orchard’s managing director (operations), said: “We would like to welcome Laura to our team. She has a broad range of experience in managing PR campaigns and has already settled in quickly. We look forward to implementing Laura’s creative ideas into client campaigns and we wish Harriet the best of luck as she starts the new adventure of parenthood”
Harriet will be returning to Orchard in December.
