Jim Byers, Rosemary Gallagher and Debbie Byers
Beeline PR has appointed Rosemary Gallagher as director as the agency celebrates a decade in business.
An established PR consultant and freelance business journalist, Ms Gallagher will focus on managing and developing relationships with key clients, generating new business in sectors such as financial services, environmental companies and the whisky industry.
Previous positions held by Rosemary include head of communications at the Scotch Whisky Association, as well as business news editor at Scotland on Sunday and personal finance editor at The Scotsman.
Most recently she was a director with PR consultancy Muckle Media. Alongside her role at Beeline PR, Rosemary will continue to write on a freelance basis for a range of titles.
Her appointment comes at a time of significant growth for the agency following a series of business wins, including work with Dentons, Mark Littler Whisky Broker, The South of Scotland Destination Alliance and green energy business, A-DEUS.
Beeline PR was set up in 2011 by Debbie Byers who had already enjoyed 15 years working in PR for several large agencies in London, Glasgow and Edinburgh.
She said: “It’s thrilling to have reached such an important milestone in the business, and to do so with the appointment of Rosemary is extremely exciting.
“I first met Rosemary while working in London more than 20 years ago. She brings with her a fantastic mix of experience in PR and journalism and I know that she is going to be a great fit with our agency.
