Phil Stubbs

Derby-based public relations and communications specialist Nielsen McAllister PR (NMPR) has boosted its senior management team with the appointment of ex-journalist Phil Stubbs.

Phil’s new role as PR account director forms part of NMPR’s drive for continued expansion into 2020.

Phil, 53, was formerly political editor at the Derby Telegraph before launching his PR career with Derby-based McConnells Group in 2006. In 2008 he set up his own consultancy, Stubbs PR Limited, and in 2017 was appointed marketing director by a client working in the financial sector.

Bob Bushby, Managing Director of NMPR, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Phil to the team. We have ambitious plans to expand the business and I see Phil as being a pivotal part of that.

“He brings with him a huge amount of knowledge and experience from his years in media and communications, which I’m confident will provide enormous benefits for both existing and future clients as well as the rest of the NMPR team.”

Bob added that the newly strengthened senior management team at NMPR – which also includes director Simon Wildash – would enable the company to strategically develop client business in new industry sectors as well as providing additional support and expertise to existing clients.

Phil said: “I’m thrilled to become part of the NMPR success story. To join such a respected and well-established agency at this time of growth is a hugely exciting opportunity.”
