The PRCA has welcomed Rob Colmer as Vice-Chairman on its PR and Communications Council for 2021.
Rob brings experience from in-house and consultancy work across the private and public sectors at an SME and a multinational company. He currently leads Shell’s global sustainability communications and reporting and has been with the company since 2002.
Council members involved in the election process were swayed by his manifesto focusing on the support of the public relations industry during recovery as well as continuing work on improving diversity, inclusion and professionalism.
‘I’m honoured to have the opportunity to support the Public Relations profession, particularly at such a challenging point in time,’ said Rob Colmer.
‘With close to 100,000 people working in this sector, the PRCA is committed to addressing the immediate challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic and supporting the continued growth and success of the PR industry.’
PR and Communications Council Chair Julia Herd is looking forward to working with Rob on this year’s challenges: ‘I’m very happy to have Rob on board to help drive positive change in what will be a pivotal year for the PR industry.
‘I have no doubt that his expertise, combined with the expertise of the other council members, will be a huge asset in addressing some of the challenges that have arisen off the back of Covid. I am very much looking forward to what this year will bring and would like to thank Rob in advance for his support and commitment’.
