Automotive communications and PR agency loop enhances its rapidly growing team with the appointment of George Marshall-Thornhill as Account Manager.
George will be working with the automotive technical division at loop, which focuses on clients with specific B2B needs as well as B2C PR. Whether it be about powertrain, EVs, aftermarket or autonomous vehicles, the automotive tech division at loop is handling an ever increasingly diverse set of clients including Delphi, Mahle Powertrain and VNC Automotive.
George brings with him experience from Ford, Jaguar Land Rover and Which? magazine among others, from projects as diverse as diesel engines to car reliability surveys. He says he hopes his previous experience with hammers, spanners, keyboards (and PowerPoint) will stand him in good stead for the challenges ahead in his new role as loop PR Account Manager.
George said: “I’m excited about helping loop in their mission to deliver first-class automotive PR. It’s a new chance for me to stretch myself in the field of automotive communications. I can’t wait to learn more about the ground-breaking work our clients are doing, and I’ll be finding any excuse to visit the loop office in Bicester, home to so many interesting vehicles and automotive businesses.”
Tim Barfoot, Managing Director, Newspress and loop, said: “We’re delighted to welcome George to the team. Having someone who is fluent in ‘engineer speak’ is perfect for the technical accounts we need to promote.
“loop is going through a period of exciting growth, driven by seismic changes within the industry – such as the switch to alternative-fuel vehicles. The new products and services this demands is helping to shape our business, and we need experienced professionals like George to drive loop forwards.”
On any occasion George finds himself with spare time, he can be found underneath various cars – restoring, repairing or frequently recycling. The fleet includes a cherished Ford Puma, which George is endeavouring to keep free from rust – a task not dissimilar to painting the Forth Bridge.
