Dublin based public relations firm Heneghan PR has announced an expansion of the business through new hires.

The firm led by managing director Nigel Heneghan has recruited Victoria Keogh, former group corporate affairs Manager at NTR as account director, former RTE news editor Gareth O’Connor, who was the first director of news gathering at Storyful, has been appointed as the agency’s digital director; and Larry Donald who has previous senior public sector experience in the ESB, An Post and Bord Gáis joins as a senior corporate consultant to the firm.

The move follows Heneghan’s recent appointment as non-executive chairman of former Bord Gais chief executive John Mullins and the promotion of Eve Noone to the role of Senior Account Manager.

“I am very pleased that consultants of the calibre of Victoria Keogh, Gareth O’Connor and Larry Donald have agreed to join the agency in a combination of full-time and senior consultancy roles.  They bring with them a broad range of depth and experience at a senior level, which will contribute to the future positive development of the agency and more particularly, our offering to the market,” said Nigel Heneghan, Managing Director, Heneghan PR.  “We have a stated ambition of developing Heneghan PR on a strong corporate footing and to gear the agency for short and medium term growth.  These significant additions to our team will be of great benefit in this respect.”

Heneghan PR was founded in 1990 and its client include Anam Cara, Blueface, Datascan, Fleetmatics, Haven, Henkel, Hibernia College, Independent News & Media, Irish Distillers Pernod Ricard, Kinetic, NTR plc, St. John of God’s Hospital, St. Michael’s House, Rentokil Initial, Siteserv, and UBER.
