My Best Hire - Kelly Kilner

Graham MacEwen, BP Exploration internal comms co-ordinator, on the 'quick learning' Kelly Kilner.

'I hired Kelly back in 2002 as an account director at Fifth Ring Corporate communications, where I worked at the time. Her desk was a cupboard top in a corner facing the wall.

'Her remit was to take on a dysfunctional team and get up to speed on a whole new industry. She certainly rose to the tough challenge, building one of the most formidable oil industry PR teams in the business while moving us into consumer and professional services.

'Kelly is a real leader and a quick learner. In December 2004 I did the decent thing and left Fifth Ring to avoid the embarrassment of her teaching me a thing or two.'

Kelly Kilner is now head of PR at Fifth Ring Corporate Communications.
