Before this, she spent eight years building a global comms function as Sony Ericsson’s head of global external comms and PR.
George Godsal, MD of corporate, MSL London, said the firm wanted an industry expert to ‘add depth to our b2b and b2c technology offer'.
He said: ‘Merran was the ideal candidate for us, bringing top-level global technology expertise, and we are delighted to have her on board.’
Wrigley said: ‘MSL London has a very strong cross-section of leading technology brand clients and so offered me a great opportunity to apply my global PR experience.’
She will report to Godsal and be responsible for developing the firm’s technology practice and working with the other technology leaders in the MSLGlobal network.
The firm’s technology credentials have recently been strengthened with the acquisition of US healthcare and technology PR consultancy Schwartz Communications by parent company MSLGroup.
