An experienced journalist has been appointed senior account manager at Cobb PR.
Angela Gallen, whose previous role was group content editor of the Hastings Observer series, is the latest edition to the growing East Sussex firm.
Her 12-year journalistic career included reporting on Britain’s biggest regional daily the Express & Star in the West Midlands, the Sutton Guardian in South London, and the Dorset Echo evening newspaper.
A stint abroad as news editor of English-language newspaper Cyprus Today followed, and she returned to the UK in 2008, joining the Hastings Observer where she worked for six years.
Angela said, “I’m thrilled to have joined Cobb PR.
“ It’s an outstanding agency that combines editorial strength with creativity and digital expertise, and it has a great reputation in the region.
“I’m looking forward to working with our clients.”
She is working alongside a highly experienced team of PR, marketing and design professionals at Cobb PR which has been providing advice and support to organisations across the UK since 1995.
The multi-award winning agency has clients across the private, public and third sectors.
Director Chris Gape said, “Angela is a great journalist and a star in the making in the world of PR.
“When I heard she was making the move into public relations, I didn’t hesitate to get in touch.”
