Rogers: PR is critical to business
Daniel Rogers has been made editor of PR Week as Gidon Freeman leaves for a job in PR after 18 months in the post.
Rogers joins from sister Haymarket title Marketing, where he has been deputy editor for the past three years.
He said: “I am looking forward to the challenge of my first editorship.
PR is much maligned but is becoming increasingly critical to business and government. There are some very talented and charismatic individuals within the industry.” Rogers started his career as a graduate trainee at Paragon Communications and worked for five years in PR before becoming a journalist. He worked for PR Week in 1997 and then joined Marketing as a reporter. He has also been a frequent contributor to the Financial Times and The Guardian on media and marketing issues.
“I’m looking to go in and learn and then aim to maintain and improve the title’s news values and gravitas it has in the market,” Rogers said.
