Middleton moves on
PR change at brewer; Taste wins food deal
There is a change of PR regime at craft brewer Innis & Gunn where Joanna Livingstone has been hired along with a new team on a full-time basis to replace consultant Steph Middleton (pictured) who has left after seven years to focus on her own business.
Details of Livingstone’s team are expected to be released this week and their first job will be handling the launch of the first Innis & Gunn bar in Lothian Road, Edinburgh on 30 July.
Meantime, Middleton teased e-mail contacts with the poetic leaving message: If you’re looking for Steph, she’s not here, Her Innis & Gunn desk is now clear.
Her Fairground Communications has been going since 2008, the year she started working with Innis & Gunn. Her list of clients has included Inverarity Morton, Macsween and Scottish Cycling.
Also in the capital, Taste Communications has been selected to represent the Edinburgh Food Festival in George Square Gardens. It runs from 29 July to 2 Aug and joining the entertainment will be a performance by all-female four-piece folk band The Poozies on the final day.
