Brickell worked for Headline Publishing before leaving to join Riot in 2011. She spent two and a half years at the firm, including a year as its campaigns director, during which time she was named on the 30 Under 30 list.

She has recently returned from a career break to go travelling, and has launched agency Maura PR & Communications with clients including publishing firm Pan Macmillan, and comedian and writer Viv Groskop.

Brickell said: ‘This is a very exciting moment for me; creatively, I have been so lucky to have learned from the best in the business and am now ready for this next challenge. I look forward to working with the brightest stars of the arts world."

When named in the 2013 30 Under 30 list, her then boss Preena Gadher, MD at Riot, attributed Brickell's success to "sheer hard work and steely determination".
