Leeds-based PR and brand communications agency Aberfield Communications is structuring for further growth with the appointment of Erin Jones and Ben Ormsby as senior PR consultants.

Erin joins the award-winning agency from Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All where she was head of marketing and communications. She brings with her eight years’ industry experience both in-house and agency side working on consumer, influencer and B2B campaigns across sectors including travel, construction, utilities, healthcare and education.

Commenting on her appointment Erin said: “I’m excited to be joining Aberfield to develop strategic communications that deliver results across a range of clients and sectors. Aberfield’s unique insight-based approach is a powerful tool in ensuring successful communications, so I’m looking forward to implementing this approach and helping our clients achieve their aims and ambitions.”

Ben joins Aberfield from TheBusinessDesk.com, where he was the Yorkshire editor covering the latest business news and affairs from across the county and was a key part in shaping its new media output throughout the pandemic. An experienced communications professional with strong knowledge in the property, FMCG and technology sectors, he started his career in Manchester before working for the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Keepmoat Homes prior to TheBusinessDesk.com.

Ben said: “I’m pleased to be joining the team as it continues to grow and am excited to bring my experience in new media to clients across a range of sectors, in order to deliver positive influence that supports their strategic goals.” 

The appointments follows a number of significant client wins for Aberfield, including The Compleat Food Group, York Minster, Castle Howard, Fortus and Wellington Place.

Tim Downs, director of Aberfield, said: “It’s great to welcome Erin and Ben to the team. Both have excellent track records and bring new skills which will expand our service lines, including video and influencer marketing, as we continue to secure new accounts.

“These senior appointments are about structuring Aberfield for future growth as we continue to see a demand for strategic communications that have a positive influence on clients’ business and their core audiences.”
