All three will report to senior director Liam Keogh and managing director Emily Keogh.

Palm said: "Collectively the team has experience across a wide range of sectors including lifestyle, health, travel, hospitality and consumer goods and will increase the food and drink company’s offering in the consumer and lifestyle sectors."

Keogh said: "At Palm PR, we are committed to driving real commercial growth for our clients. We are delighted to have made three new senior hires bringing an impressive spread of global experience, which adds value to our specialist food and drink offering that already spans brand, service and hospitality sectors.

"2014 has been a year of expansion for Palm PR and we believe these new additions to our team will see this growth continue into 2015."
