His deep industry knowledge and expertise in leading teams to deliver strategic campaigns that create real-world outcomes for clients will be instrumental in shaping the future direction of the company.

“We are thrilled to welcome Niall to the Thrive PR family,” said Clare Basire, executive director of Thrive PR. “His extensive experience and strategic vision align perfectly with our goals for growth and integration.
