PR Week names its 30 under 30 PR professionals

Congratulations to the PR professionals aged 30 and under who have been named in the 2016 PR Week 30 Under 30 list.

PRweek30 under 30As a former winner myself (back in 2009 when it was 29 under 29), I’m always interested to see who’s on it and the companies they represent.

This year’s group are from a variety of agency and in-house roles and across different specialisms.

The 30 will take part in a photo shoot and drinks reception at the London office of Hanover later this month, and be profiled in the June edition of PRWeek.

I’ve created a public Twitter list of this year’s winners, which you can follow.
