Laura Sibley has joined Brands2Life’s board as managing director of the agency’s consumer division, which presently has 15 staff and ambitions to build quickly as the public relations business continues to integrate.

She brings a fantastic mix of consumer, integrated communications and creative agency experience combined with an agility and insight to work across such varied client sectors and markets." 

"I'm excited to join an independent agency with a big heart,” said Sibley. “One that cares both for its teams and clients, which is evident through its ‘best places to work’ accolades and campaign work recognition."

Sibley formerly worked for the Kazoo and Borkowski agencies and as a PR manager at Samsung.
