Ward’s new role will involve heading up Prova’s environmental team, developing thought leadership, strategy, social media, creative ideas and overseeing campaign delivery for clients, including Turquoise International, Heru, ReFood and Geminor.

He said: “Joining Prova at this time of immense transformation is a thrilling opportunity and I can’t wait to work with some of the best and most creative thinkers in the environmental arena.

“As a sector, we are on the cusp of macro changes that will potentially rewrite the rulebook. The fallout from UK and US politics offers companies both legislative challenges and – for the most nimble – commercial opportunities which I believe we can help them realise.”

Aimee Postle, director of Prova PR, said: “Simon has been adding value to the Prova team as an experienced consultant for a number of months now and it is great news that he will be taking up the mantle of head of environment and cleantech as we grow this important side of the business.

“The environmental sector has undergone significant changes over recent years and we are working closely with our clients across international borders to deliver transformative growth opportunities. Simon’s passion for environmental PR, combined with a rigorous editorial background, makes him a very welcome addition to the Prova team.”
