Two new additions to the Aberfield team
We are thrilled to announce two new additions to the Aberfield team this week, as we are joined by PR rising stars Rebecca Armstrong and Christian Dente.
Both Leeds Met PR graduates (of course!), Rebecca was previously Public Relations and Sponsorship Activation Manager at First Direct Arena whilst Christian joins us from London PR agency Grayling.
Having led national and global PR campaigns for some of the world’s biggest brands – including Diageo, Heinz and Center Parcs UK – Christian and Rebecca bring their industry experience and expertise, delivering communications campaigns for our great clients.
Things you should know about Rebecca
Yorkshire born and bred Rebecca, or ‘Becks’ as we know her, is a “reet”, proper local Leeds lass. She’s a keen runner, an obsessive Instagrammer and, like any true northerner, when she’s not doing PR she loves nothing more than a good pub and a Yorkshire pudding.
Known amongst her friends as being just a bit of a ‘Monica’ (90’s Friends reference for you young ones), Becks makes a list for just about everything and is the ultimate planner of organised fun – yes, she’s that kind of friend.
Guilty pleasures: McFly, Mail Online Showbiz, Ryan Gosling memes, and popcorn by the gallon.
Things you should know about Christian
Originally from the seaside town of Scarborough, Christian is our resident beach boy. He’s the man with a million names but around the office Christian is known as ‘Ronnie’ in homage to Real Madrid star Christiano Ronaldo. Mainly because he shares the same first name, not because of his below average football skills.
An avid rugby player and fitness fanatic, Christian admittedly has a major man crush on his sports idol Sonny Bill Williams and is possibly Harry Potter’s biggest fan. He’s the most talkative person you’re likely to meet and in true PR style, Christian’s finest moments include sharing a moment with Kelly Brook, having a pint with Harry Styles and lending a pen to John Aldridge.
Guilty pleasures: Celebrity name dropping, Geordie Shore, pancakes with bacon and maple syrup and tight jeans.
It’s not taken them long to settle in and already our office is busier – and noisier – than ever! Say hello to Becks and Christian on Twitter @AberfieldPR
