PRCA announces new International role

The Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) welcomes Georgia Ramm to the team, in the newly created position of International Relations Officer.

Ramm will be responsible for increasing international engagement for the PRCA which currently operates in UK and the Middle East and North Africa, as well as developing initiatives for the International Communications Consultancy Organisation (ICCO).

Francis Ingham, Director General of PRCA UK and PRCA MENA, and Chief Executive of ICCO said: “Georgia’s appointment as the new PRCA International Relations Officer will allow us to increase even further our international work. We already manage ICCO, operating in 55 countries around the world; we are already Europe’s largest professional association for PR practitioners; and we already have an office in Dubai. We will now ramp up our activity, exploring other markets where the PRCA can usefully establish itself, and increasing the range of services we provide to members in the UK, MENA, and elsewhere.”

Ramm said:

“It’s great to be joining the company at such an exciting time. We work closely with our members throughout the world and are currently expanding in the Middle East and North Africa, with new associations recently joining in Eastern Europe, the Association of Communications Agencies, (ACA) Georgia. ICCO partnerships exclusively with companies that have an international agenda, and we aim to expand our international memberships in more sectors and countries. It’s great to be joining the company at such an exciting time.”

Ramm has a background in corporate communications and administration from the financial services and gold mining sectors, and is currently completing a Master’s in Public Relations and Corporate Communications.
