Travel and tourism marketing agency Gate 7 has appointed Jacob Annesley as director of public relations and content.

Annesley draws from a wealth of experience across earned media and integrated campaigns for industry-leading brands and is set to lead Gate 7 to new heights in creative storytelling and brand promotion.

Annesley will assume responsibility for overseeing all public relations and content creation activities at Gate 7.

Gate 7 is renowned for its excellence in destination marketing, and Annesley’s appointment signifies the agency’s commitment to maintaining and exceeding the high standards it has set.

Jo Palmer, managing director, said: “We are delighted to welcome Jacob Annesley to lead our Gate 7 PR team. His extensive experience, creativity and leadership will make him an invaluable addition and help continue our drive for innovation and authentic connection through our storytelling.”

Reflecting on his new role, Annesley stated, “More than ever, travel is a really exciting space to be in. I am thrilled to join Gate 7 and be part of a team known around the globe for their passion in showcasing the beauty and diversity of destinations worldwide. The opportunity to work with Jo was especially compelling, whose vision for both Gate 7 and the industry excited me. Watch this space!”
