PR agency, Briscoe PR, has recruited three new people to its Hampshire team as part of an expansion and brand refresh.

Lorraine Bryant has taken the role of PR and campaigns manager to lead the team in traditional PR and creative campaign planning. Lorraine joins the team after 10 years at Carnival UK with the last seven as PR manager for Princess Cruises managing creative and broadcast campaigns.

Ellie Foxwell has joined the team full-time as a PR account executive after completing a Masters in public relations at Southampton Solent University. She had interned part-time at Briscoe PR during her studies.

Lorna Cree has also joined the Briscoe team as a Bournemouth University third year intern. She will be with the team for this academic year before returning to Bournemouth to complete her degree.

The new appointments coincide with a brand refresh for the agency - which is based at Universal Marina on the banks of the River Hamble at Sarisbury Green

Formerly known as Briscoe French, the firm has gone back to its roots and now just has the name of its director Kevin Briscoe.

Kevin Briscoe said: “I couldn’t be happier to welcome Lorraine, Ellie and Lorna to the Briscoe PR team. There are exciting times ahead for the company and the arrival of three new team members will be vital to our growth.”

Briscoe PR, which has a second office in Plymouth, is shortlisted for seven regional PR awards for the south of England next month.
