APPROACH PR is expanding its Ilkley-based team with the addition of business management undergraduate, Finley Howell.

Finley, 20, has been appointed as junior account executive while on his placement year at Leeds Beckett University.

Before joining Approach, he achieved upper second-class honours within his two years at university and has studied financial management and entrepreneurial marketing. Finley will work across business to business and business to consumer clients at the eight-strong agency.

MD Suzanne Watson said: “Investing in the next generation of PR practitioners is a key focus for us and in Finley we recognised immediately, a hunger to learn, to develop and a real passion for our business.”
