The Director of Sales and Marketing for The Jersey Royal Company has been recognised by the PR industry’s governing body.
William Church has been awarded a Fellowship by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR). Mr Church, who is a chartered PR practitioner, has been a member of the CIPR for more than 10 years, having joined when the Channel Islands group was formed. He was elected chair of the local group in September 2018.
“It’s an honour to be awarded a Fellowship and to join some of the PR industry’s leading professionals.
“Public relations and marketing has become an established and professional industry which champions relevant qualifications and continuous professional development and it can only be positive that more and more people are choosing to become chartered and also being rewarded for their contribution through Fellowships,” said Mr Church, who also sits on an independent advisory group which co-ordinates PR for the Jersey Royals industry.
“The Channel Islands group is committed to providing CPD opportunities for those in communications roles in the islands to ensure that the advice we give meets the highest possible standards and that we uphold our reputations as experienced and qualified professionals.”
Emma Lynch, president of the Chartered Institute for Public Relations, congratulated Mr Church, who was one of only eight to be awarded Fellowships.
“Fellowship is awarded to members in recognition of longstanding achievement and service to the CIPR and the wider public relations profession. Today’s new Fellows are strategic advisers operating at the top of their game who are committed to ethical practice and giving back for everyone’s benefit,” she said.
