Firefly bolsters its team, with one new Account Director and two new Account Managers 

Firefly Communications announced three promotions at the end of 2012.  The promotions celebrate the fantastic achievements of the talented Account Managers and Account Directors, who are responsible for managing and leading our day-to-day client business.

Caroline Higgins has been promoted to Account Director.  Caroline joined Firefly in April 2010 and is responsible for leading some of its biggest clients and multi-regional campaigns.  Caroline is one of the senior pillars of Firefly’s B2B team, and directs the accounts for The Search Agency, Freescale, EvoSwitch, LeaseWeb and Masternaut.
Austin Brailey has just celebrated his one year anniversary with Firefly – and wrapped up his 2012 with a promotion to Account Manager.  Austin was part of the pitch team which, in August 2012, won new Firefly client Savvis, the global leader in cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions.  Austin also works on the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR); he recently led a high-profile project for CEDR on the Inquiry into Inquiries, which was aimed at probing the current public inquiry system.

Both Caroline and Austin report to Phil Szomszor, Firefly’s Head of Business and Digital and are instrumental in supporting the growing B2B division.

Charlotte Stoel has also been promoted to Account Manager.  Charlotte is one of Firefly’s longest-standing team members, having started her PR career in the Firefly Paris office part-time while completing her degree.  Now a core member of the Firefly London team, Charlotte’s clients include Give as you Live – for which she manages award-nominated campaigns, including one which was shortlisted for a 2012 PR Moment Golden Hedgehog and was a finalist in the 2012 Holmes Report European Sabres.  Charlotte was also part of the pan-European pitch team that won new consumer client Vimeo, in March 2012.

Charlotte reports to Fiona Hughes, Firefly’s Head of Consumer, adding value to the Consumer Practice, as well as supporting Firefly’s B2B clients.
