Emilie Lien joins PRN to grow our international offering
We're delighted to announce as published in PRWeek and PRovoke that we've hired Emilie Lien to join our permanent client services team following another year of growth from £4.2k to £4.8m*. Our remote-first, senior-only model has gained rapid traction since the pandemic proved it is possible to do great work from any location without a central office.
We're now proud to say we have clients and partners in most key business centres worldwide, with programmes coordinated by our PRN Hub of client service directors based around the UK.
Emilie is returning to the PRN fold, having worked with us as an independent consultant from 2017, delivering great work for Zipcar, amongst other clients. She was most recently employed as a senior consultant at Wonderland Communications in Bristol. Previous agency experience includes Lexis, Speed and Bottle.
Emilie brings multinational account experience to the table as well as being trilingual in French and German. Her knowledge of European and international PR markets will be invaluable, as 80% of PRN’s business is multi-market and winning more international #comms accounts is the agency’s focus for 2023.
At PRN, Emilie will run flagship account Workday, leading the PRN Hub which coordinates Workday’s communications across Europe via an independent network of agencies. She will also support newly-appointed Managing Director Eileen Boydell and the rest of the senior client services team to grow PRN’s base of international clients across the technology and consumer sectors.
About her appointment, Emilie says, ““Having previously worked with The PR Network as an independent consultant, I’m excited to be returning as Client Services Director, working with the fantastic core team led by Nicky and George. Long before the pandemic The PR Network’s ‘remote-first, work from anywhere’ business model was leading the way in showing what the PR agency of the future could look like, and I now look forward to collaborating with the team to grow our offering and create new opportunities for our clients, our many associates around the world and our innovative agency.”
