Matt Cartmell, PRCA deputy director general

PRCA promotes Matt Cartmell to deputy director general

The PRCA has promoted Matt Cartmell to deputy director general after five years leading the association’s communications, marketing and events.

This is the first time PRCA director general Francis Ingham has appointed a deputy. Cartmell will share his spokesperson responsibilities and help to lead and represent the organisation externally.

Cartmell joined the PRCA in 2012 from PRWeek, where he was news editor. He will continue to hold the role of director of communications, marketing and events, leading a team of seven.

“It is with great pleasure that I announce that Matt will become my deputy director general,” said Ingham. “The news recognises the growing importance of his role within the organisation.”

Cartmell added: “As Francis would say, the PRCA is in rude health. I’m proud of the strong position we’ve taken on ethical professionalism, while pushing the industry forward on core issues like diversity and the gender pay gap. I’m looking forward to working even more closely with the industry as we continue moving things forward.”
