Cogent Elliott welcomes four new members to its team

Cogent New Starters

23rd March 2012

Two PR recruits, a planner and an agency producer have all joined Cogent following successful client wins and as a part of our strategic business objective to broaden our offer even further.

Brett Lowther, PR Manager and Alex Boots, PR Executive, join a growing PR team which has had recent account wins including Hozelock and London Midland in recent months.

An experienced PR professional, Brett brings to the team at Cogent, expertise gained from working at a number of leading London agencies across consumer, corporate and public sector clients as well as working in house for a leading healthcare provider.

Commenting on his appointment, Brett said: "I am joining the Cogent team at such an exciting time. I've been fortunate to have worked on and lead a number of high profile campaigns for M&S, Philips UK, P&G prestige fragrances and the HSE and I'm thoroughly enjoying rolling up my sleeves and get my feet firmly stuck under the table at Cogent Elliott."

Alex Boots joins from Warwick based Delphi Automotive where she worked across a number of departments including Sales & Marketing.

Also joining the Cogent roost is planner Lee Jackson. As an experienced account planner, Lee has developed communication strategies for a range of clients including Virgin Media, Heinz, Cineworld and London 2012 and looks forward to utilising his expertise working at Cogent on a host of leading brand names.

And finally, and by no mean least, Lucy Webb joins Cogent as Agency Producer and like Brett, brings a host of experience gained as an art buyer and producer at various London agencies. Lucy has also spent a couple of years as a Photographer's Agent.

Alan Gilmour, Head of Brand, PR and CRM, commented: "We're delighted to welcome Brett, Alex, Lee and Lucy to the Cogent fold. We have a clear focus to continue to invest in our business and these appointments affirm our commitment to broadening our strategic and creative expertise as we continue to create world-class campaigns which help to build our clients' business.
