The first PRCA PR Council was launched in 2010, with a remit to discuss the issues PR people are facing and help inform the future of the PR industry trade body.
The latest 32-strong list of members was decided in a recent election process.
Alongside Acheson-Gray and Lee, other new members include Lansons CEO Tony Langham and Hanover director Gavin Megaw.
PRCA director general Francis Ingham said: ‘The response to this year’s PR Council elections had been overwhelming, with a record number of nominees and a record number of electors.'
