He joins Admiral from GyroHSR, where he was a PR director handling UK and international business-to-business accounts, where he worked for clients such as education and publishing giant Pearson.
Chesher said: ‘Having worked largely with clients outside the region for the past five years, I am excited to be back as part of the North West’s PR scene.
‘There is clearly a lot of opportunity here, and a lot of healthy competition for PR business, but I am certain that we can grow Admiral into a significant player in Manchester.’
Chesher was hired by Georgie Cameron, Admiral’s founder and managing director.
Admiral PR already has an office in Newcastle upon Tyne, and a satellite office in London.
