Sarah Williams, previous managing director of Porter Novelli has departed the PR company. Louise Wright, will take the reigns effective immediately.

She is widely respected by us and her peers for her values and for advocating what’s right over what’s easy. I want to thank her for her incredible tenure and wish her well,” said Gall.

“But with change comes opportunity and I’m absolutely delighted that Louise is taking on the role. Louise has a unique combination of creative and strategic thinking which she will continue to bring to Porter Novelli clients as their trusted advisor.
